Regina King stars in "Southland" on TNT as Lydia Adams, a dedicated daughter and detective. Regina King previously portrayed Sandra Palmer on FOX's "24."

Thanks to roles in a number of prominent films, King's distinguished talents have not gone unnoticed by Hollywood. Tthe skilled actress was recently seen as the female lead role opposite Forest Whitaker in the comedy feature "Our Family Wedding." Before that, she starred in the Lifetime original movie "Living Proof," executive-produced by Renée Zellweger and starring opposite Harry Connick, Jr. She had previously starred in Paramount Vantage's comedy "Year of the Dog," opposite Molly Shannon, Laura Dern, Peter Sarsgaard and John C. Reilly, and the Screen Gems' holiday-film "This Christmas," opposite Mekhi Phifer and Loretta Devine.
 
King also starred in the comedy "Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous" and voiced the character Kreela in the animated film "Ant Bully." Prior to that, she appeared in the Oscar-nominated film "Ray." King's other feature credits include "A Cinderella Story," "Daddy Day Care" and "Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde."

Born and raised in Los Angeles, King made her television debut on the hit sitcom "227." After five seasons, King made the leap to the silver screen with a role in "Boys n the Hood" and later starred in "Poetic Justice" and "Higher Learning." King has always been consistent in showing her dynamic range, bouncing effortlessly from dramatic material to comedic performances, as proven in the hit film "Friday" and "A Thin Line Between Love and Hate."

But if there was a definite turning point in her career, it came in 1997 with her memorable role as Cuba Gooding Jr.'s wife, Marci, in the blockbuster film "Jerry Maguire." This led to starring roles in "How Stella Got Her Groove Back," the hit action-thriller "Enemy of the State," the family-adventure "Mighty Joe Young," and the comedy "Down to Earth."

King also found her way back to the small screen in 2000 with a role in the acclaimed "If These Walls Could Talk 2" and in the comedy, "Leap of Faith." King most recently worked on the animated series "The Boondocks" as the voice of both Huey and Riley.

King currently lives in Los Angeles with her son, Ian.
