Anna Maria Horsford stars in "Reed Between the Lines" on BET.

Anna Maria Horsford is one of the most versatile actresses in Hollywood, playing roles from profoundly dramatic to gut-busting comedy. 

Born to parents from Antigua & Barbuda in the West Indies, Horsford was raised in Harlem, New York, with a broader view of the world beyond the shores of Amerca. She graduated from the New York High School of Performing Arts and attended college in Stockholm, Sweden. She is a member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.

Horsford actually began her professional career behind the camera as a producer for the PBS show, "Soul!," an all-black weekly variety show that showcased internationally known funk, jazz and soul musicians as well as interviews with prominent world politicians and writers.

Horsford's breadth and depth of talent keeps her from being type-cast. She is perhaps best known for her role as Thelma Frye on the sitcom "Amen" and her role as Craig Jones' mother, Betty Jones, in the 1995 classic comedy, "Friday." She has played myriad characters on "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," "Sparks," "Moesha," "The Bernie Mac Show," "The Shield," "Girlfriends," "Everybody Hates Chris" and "The Wayans Bros." as Dee Baxter the lovable security guard. She has also appeared on the dramas "Judging Amy" and "Grey's Anatomy."

Horsford also played the role of Miss Annie in the acclaimed Tim Reid directed movie "Once Upon a Time When We Were Colored." She was more recently seen in Fox Searchlight's "Our Family Wedding," starring America Ferrera, Forest Whitaker and Carlos Mencia, and in the lead role in the indie film "Wigger," opposite Meshach Taylor.
