She's not a big name by any means but I've been of fan of Kim Hawthorne's since seeing her on an episode of "Stargate SG-1". I find that for a black American actress her career has been interesting in the sense that she worked primarily in Canada and lives in Vancouver. I guess realizing the competitive nature of Hollywood, she opted to go up North and look for work there. And she found it mostly in TV shows that film all over Canada.
Here's a few quotes from Kim:
Vancouver, B.C., Canada
TV/film/theatre actress known for her role as Theo in Jeremiah and lawyer Belinda Keefer in All My Children, as well as starring in Cy Coleman’s Broadway musical, The Life, the movie Along Came a Spider, and most recently on the big screen in The Chronicles of Riddick
On career: “Currently I am in Los Angeles shooting a pilot for HBO. When that wraps, I will be co-starring in an independent MGM movie called Harvest Moon. I feel extremely blessed and fortunate to be getting paid to do what I love. I’ve even had the opportunity to work with actors whose work I respect and admire such as Morgan Freeman, Carroll O’Connor, and Dame Judi Dench.”
On family: “My biggest accomplishment so far has got to be motherhood. My son is the light of my world and has really put everything into perspective for me. I’ve always been a focused person, but having my son has made me want to live my life as fearlessly as possible. It’s what I want for him so I have to walk the walk. I want him to witness me being the best I can be every day.”
