Born in Panama City, Panama and raised in Canada, the tall, attractive Klea Scott first worked in TV at the age of 12 for two seasons (1982-84) on the Canadian program "You Can't Do That on Television", an experience that switched her focus from tap dancing to acting. Following her graduation from high school, she studied acting in NYC and spent a summer at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. On stage, she has also performed in "All's Well That Ends Well" and "The Tempest", with the New York Shakespeare Festival. Scott made her network TV debut on an episode of the CBS sitcom "Cosby" before accepting the regular role of Officer Nona Valentine on the police drama "Brooklyn South" (CBS, 1997-98). After some time, her character became enmeshed in an interracial romantic triangle with two fellow officers.
