Biography

Exotic-looking performer Persia White -- a multi-hyphenate who straddles roles as an actress, singer, songwriter, musician, and film producer -- began life in 1976, ensconced by semi-impoverished trappings, but delivered herself into a successful career as an artist via raw talent and determination. White debuted on television in 1996, with a role on NYPD Blue, segued into telemovies under the aegis of Robert Allan Ackerman with the same year's prime-time feature drama Suddenly (starring Kirstie Alley), and appeared in Charles Band's quirky 1999 horror picture Blood Dolls. Meanwhile, White co-authored songs with such notables as Jane Wiedlin of the Go-Go's and Gary Wallis of Pink Floyd, and formed her own indie rock band, XEO3. White also starred in the long-running hit series Girlfriends (2000) as Lynn. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
