Like a lot of actors, Garcelle Beauvais made her TV debut with a one-off role on Miami Vice. Since then, the Haiti-born beauty, who got her start as a model for Clairol and Calvin Klein, has had a varied career spanning prime-time dramas (NYPD Blue, Franklin & Bash), movies (Coming to America, White House Down) and even music videos (she was the chick R. Kelly and Mr. Biggs fought over in “Down Low”). But to this day she’s probably best remembered as Francesca “Fancy” Monroe, Jamie Foxx’s love interest on his late ’90s WB series.
