In 2003, she made her stage debut in Los Angeles, in Del Shore’s award winning play, The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife, starring opposite veteran actress Beth Grant.  Later that year, she starred opposite Emmy Award winner Allison Janney in Tate Taylor’s critically lauded and award winning short feature, Chicken Party.  Her screen credits include: Coach Carter, Charm School, Win A Date with Tad Hamilton, Legally Blonde 2, Spiderman, Big Momma’s House, Never Been Kissed, & Being John Malkovich.  She’s had a myriad of guest-starring roles on TV including: E.R., CSI: NY, LAX, Dharma & Greg, Huff, Medium and NYPD Blue just to name a few.  Recently, she starred in a series for Comedy Central called Halfway Home and was considered for an Emmy Nomination for her role as “Constance Grady” in the hit TV series, Ugly Betty.

In 2003, she made her stage debut in Los Angeles, in Del Shore’s award winning play, The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife, starring opposite veteran actress Beth Grant.  Later that year, she starred opposite Emmy Award winner Allison Janney in Tate Taylor’s critically lauded and award winning short feature, Chicken Party.  Her screen credits include: Coach Carter, Charm School, Win A Date with Tad Hamilton, Legally Blonde 2, Spiderman, Big Momma’s House, Never Been Kissed, & Being John Malkovich.  She’s had a myriad of guest-starring roles on TV including: E.R., CSI: NY, LAX, Dharma & Greg, Huff, Medium and NYPD Blue just to name a few.  Recently, she starred in a series for Comedy Central called Halfway Home and was considered for an Emmy Nomination for her role as “Constance Grady” in the hit TV series, Ugly Betty.

Octavia Spencer (Robyn) is a native of Montgomery, Alabama; which, she claims is the proverbial buckle of the Bible belt.  She’s the sixth of seven siblings and holds a BS in Liberal Arts from Auburn University.  A “closet” lover of acting, this practical Alabamian knew that she’d someday work in the film industry, but never dreamed it would be in front of the camera.  In 1995, acclaimed director Joel Schumacher changed all that by giving her a small part opposite Sandra Bullock in the hit film A Time to Kill, and Spencer was on her way.  In 1996, she teamed up with Bullock again in Bullock’s directorial debut of Making Sandwiches, a short film that premiered at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival and won rave reviews.  Since then, Spencer has continued to see success as an actor in memorable supporting roles.

In 2003, she made her stage debut in Los Angeles, in Del Shore’s award winning play, The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife, starring opposite veteran actress Beth Grant.  Later that year, she starred opposite Emmy Award winner Allison Janney in Tate Taylor’s critically lauded and award winning short feature, Chicken Party.  Her screen credits include: Coach Carter, Charm School, Win A Date with Tad Hamilton, Legally Blonde 2, Spiderman, Big Momma’s House, Never Been Kissed, & Being John Malkovich.  She’s had a myriad of guest-starring roles on TV including: E.R., CSI: NY, LAX, Dharma & Greg, Huff, Medium and NYPD Blue just to name a few.  Recently, she starred in a series for Comedy Central called Halfway Home and was considered for an Emmy Nomination for her role as “Constance Grady” in the hit TV series, Ugly Betty.

In 2002, the avid forensic buff co-authored a mystery novel for kids entitled, The Rock Holler Gang: Jr. Detectives.
