Title Profile & Character Information

Grace after Midnight

Annotation
While Felicia is a brilliant actor in a truly chilling role in The Wire, what's most remarkable about "Snoop" is what she has overcome in her life. Snoop was born a three-pound cross-eyed crack baby in East Baltimore. Those streets are among the toughest in the world, but Snoop was tougher. The runt of the ghetto showed an early aptitude for drug slinging and violence and thrived as a baby gangsta until she landed in prison after killing a woman in self-defense. There she rebelled violently against the system, and it was only through the intervention of her mentor that she turned her life around. Snoop was discovered in a nightclub and quickly recruited to be one of television's most frightening and intriguing villians. Snoop's is the story of a woman who defied traditional conventions on the hardest streets in America.--From publisher description.
