Biography

As the smart and sassy mother on the hit UPN sitcom, "Everybody Hates Chris," actress Tichina Arnold was living proof that lightening can strike more than once, having starred on another successful series, "Martin" (Fox, 1992-97) years before. Born June 28, 1971 and raised in Queens, NY, Arnold's penchant for performing began in childhood, holding church congregations enthralled as a four-year-old. When she turned eight, her mother and uncle encouraged her to audition, and she won a part in her first play, "The Me Nobody Knows," at the Billie Holiday Theater in Brooklyn. She continued to perform in the theater and at supper clubs, starring in such productions as "Hair" and "Romance and Hard Times." She then landed bit parts in TV movies such as "The Brass Ring" in 1983 and PBS' "House of Dries Dear" the year after.
