The 40-year-old performer from Georgia gets best known for her time at the stage production of For Colored Girls before crossing over to films with the 2012 drama A Cross to Bear.
The longtime fans also called her work in the Oprah Winfrey Network primetime soap opera The Haves and the Have Nots to be her best to date with other celebrated reenactments in Station Eleven and From Scratch.
Indeed, she gained the favor of the critics with 2021 The Harder They Fall and the biopic Till. The latter won her Best Actress for the 14th Annual AAFCA Awards. Her co-actress Jalyn Hall is just a little behind, earning the statuette as Emerging Face.

Danielle Deadwyler Has A Supportive Partner
Danielle Deadwyler husband Reggie Haslam Jr owns the Vector Group. Reggie and Danielle tied the knot in the 2000s and share a son.
Although the couple likes to keep things lowkey, they wore all dark clothes at the UNCF 2016 Atlanta Mayor's Masked Ball. After that brief appearance in 2016, the pair have managed to secure their privacy, ridding their Instagram of unwanted attention.
Reggie Haslam Jr Is A Morehouse College Graduate
After getting his high school diploma, Reggie Haslam sought a bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Morehouse College.
But his thirst for education was not over, as he also enrolled in the Management Development Program at the University of California, Los Angeles. Her spouse grew interested in his dad's business at an early age. His father, Reggie Haslam, Sr., was his inspiration, having gained over 40 years of knowledge in the bus management and operations industry.
Indeed, the man remains notable for his work in the four Olympic Games, two Democratic National Conventions, and many other high-profile events. His parent's work ethic got passed down through the generations with an innate insight into the transportation management industry.
For the past 15 years, he has been learning planning and execution of large-scale, with an extensive understanding of the development and implementation of DBE community outreach programs.
He is now the president and CEO of Vectour Group, holding the chair for the past nine years, where he started as a mere vice president in 2008. Before that, he functioned as an account executive for First Data Corporation for two years, between 2007 and 2009.
The Pair Share A Son
Danielle Deadwyler son Ezra Cardan Haslam is 12 years old. His private father took to Instagram for his 4th birthday to declare his adoration for the little man, saying no one he loves more in the world in 2013.
When auditing for the part of Mamie Till-Mobley in Till, his mom had to get into the mindset of a mother who lost her teenage son. The innocent child was not a criminal but a victim of racial profiling that led to his passing. The unfairness of the situation hit home as her being in the positions in actuality was not far fetched thought.
Meanwhile, her actual child was a few doors down playing on his computer. She warned him about the noises, to which her 12-year-old answered maturely. She never shielded him from the possible atrocities, letting him know the world is never fair after telling him about Uvalde and Buffalo.
In an interview with vulture, she said Ezra was the one who calmed Deadwyler’s sister when she heard his mother’s anguished cries.
Danielle Deadwyler Called Her Twin Sister As Her Family
Danielle Deadwyler twin sister Gabrielle Fulton Ponder is a stage and screenwriter. Born on May 3, 1982, she and her three siblings were children to a legal secretary and a railroad supervisor.
She went to Spelman College for her post-graduate studies, getting a Master of Arts in American Studies from Columbia University. For her thesis, she chose a particular topic as she researched strippers. Her selections helped her in the long run, as she made a movie on a similar premise.
But her road to artistry got set in place way earlier when her mama enrolled her in dance classes. She told AJC that she used to dance to Soul Train at three years old as her passion evolved into a lifestyle.
Ponder had her twin sister along for the journey, who grew alongside her and became a local filmmaker and writer. She had five credits on IMDB, with the Reconcilable, Ambitions, Sacrifice, and Chicago Med being the most notable ones.
Unlike her sister, Gabrielle got her degrees from Northwestern and Columbia University, making ends meet as an executive assistant at Vicom between 1998 and 2000.
Throughout the decades, she has worked for various production houses, with Horizon Theatre Company, National New Play Network, Alliance Theatre, BET NETWORKS, and Lionsgate being one of many.
Currently, she devotes her time at NBC Universal as an executive story writer for the Wolf Entertainment-created Chicago Med. Since 2010, she has remained faithful to Independent Entertainment Professional as a playwright, screenwriter, producer, and consultant.
