3 words for this girl : 'FAB' 'U' 'Lous', A definite IndieSeen favorite, Gabrielle Union got her start playing the "token black girl" in those late 90's teen flicks like , 10 Things I Hate About You and She's All That, always out shining whatever Upcoming WB starlet of the moment she was in the scene with.
Confident and sexy Gabrielle has that Foxxy girl next door charm about her, she can play sweet one minute and Saucy the next.

Its always refreshing to see an actress of color especially one as appealing as Union get the credit and roles she deserves.
this Fall you can see Gabrielle starring in the Highly anticipated Americanized version of the blockbuster British soap Footballers wives.

In the New ABC serial she is set to play Chardonay Lane a high maintenance aspiring pop star married to a Football playing Golden boy.
