Biography

A highly attractive biracial actress who began to get press after appearing in "The Craft" (1996) and Gregg Araki's "Nowhere" (1997), Rachel True has been a working actor for most of the 1990s. She broke into the business with a recurring role on the NBC sitcom "The Cosby Show". After moving to L.A. in 1993, True appeared in the rap parody "CB4" (1993) and landed a recurring role on the HBO sitcom "Dream On". She made guest appearances on several TV series, including "Beverly Hills, 90210" and had featured roles in the TV-movies "Moment of Truth: Stalking Back" (NBC, 1993), and "A Walton Wedding" (CBS, 1995). True's big break came when she was tapped to play an over-achieving witch alongside Robin Tunney, Neve Campbell and Fairuza Balk in the hit film "The Craft" (1996). Since her breakthrough, she was James Duval's fickle girlfriend in "Nowhere" and Dave Chappelle's romantic interest in "Half-Baked" (1998). In 1997, True landed the recurring role of a buppie neighbor to the blue-collar Drew on the ABC sitcom "The Drew Carey Show" and in 1999 she began her reoccuring stint on the television drama "Once And Again." She was soon cast as Mona in the UPN television comedy "Half And Half" (2002), which also co-starred Essences Atkins.
