N'Bushe Wright

Yet another reason why the world loves women from
Brooklyn, N'Bushe Wright is a distinct beauty. With her
mother being a psychologist working with the New York
Board of Ed and her father being jazzman Suleiman-Marim
Wright, N'Bushe has excellence in her blood. Only a year
out of the Stella Adler Acting School, she wound up playing
Nikki in the critically acclaimed 'Zebrahead', following it up
with a key role in the NBC drama I'll Fly Away. And if that
wasn't enough, in 1994 she starred in Boaz Yakin's 'Fresh'
and in the Hughes Brothers' 'Dead Presidents'. From then
on she's had numerous roles in film and TV although one
thing still escapes us...why was she never considered for
the role of Storm in the X-Men Movies?!!

She wasn't considered for Storm for the usual reason: she was too dark-skinned. PEACE.

She was considered for Storm and for the Charlie's Angels movies.
She's great. Hollywood will catch up eventually..I hope!
