Chandra Wilson stars in ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" as Miranda Bailey. For her critically-acclaimed role, she has earned an Actor (Screen Actors Guild Award) for Best Actress in a Drama Series, an Actor for Best Drama Series Ensemble, a Peoples' Choice Award and three NAACP Image Awards. She is also a five-time Emmy nominee and a BET Award nominee.

This Houston, Texas native began performing in musicals at the age of five with Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS), where she appeared in more than ten of their major musical productions. At Houston's Ensemble Theatre she portrayed Li'l Bits in "One Monkey Don't Stop No Show" and, in the summer of 2005, received their Rising Star honor for her accomplishments. She graduated from Houston's High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, and later went on to acquire her BFA in Drama from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. There she spent four years training at the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute.

Wilson's greatest New York stage accomplishment thus far is her portrayal of Bonna Willis in the production of "The Good Times are Killing Me," by Lynda Barry, both at the Second Stage and Minetta Lane Theatres, which won her a Theatre World Award for Outstanding Debut Performance. In the Spring of 2004 she was selected by The New York Times as one of "8 to Watch, Onstage and Behind the Scenes." This honor came in conjunction with the Broadway opening of "Caroline, or Change," written by Tony Kushner, composed by Jeanine Tesori and directed by George C. Wolfe, in which she portrayed Dotty Moffett opposite the formidable Tonya Pinkins at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre. She was also in the Broadway productions of "Avenue Q" and "On the Town."

Other television credits include series regular Claudia Hopper on ABC's "Bob Patterson," along with numerous guest appearances on "The Sopranos," "Law & Order," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Sex and the City," "Third Watch," "100 Centre Street," "Cosby" and "The Cosby Show."
