: Jasmine Guy FINALLY looks her age. The Different World actress turned 56 years old this weekend.
She now looks her age. Unfortunately for her . . . She’s looked like she was in her MID-50s. . . for the past 20 years.
She has also been putting in a lot of work over the decades.
She featured in several iconic movies including Spike Lee’s School Days, Harlem Nights, and even played Betty Rizzo in a stage production of Grease. From 2009 to 2017 she had a recurring role in The CW’s series The Vampire Diaries.
Jasmine Guy is currently starring in the BET series, The Quad. She spoke to The Undefeated about her character Ella Grace, saying:
“This woman is almost the antithesis of what Whitley would be 30 years later… This woman … brings home pieces from Peru … and an African tribe that she spent the week with. She’s … a grounded woman. She reminds me of a Charlayne Hunter-Gault. An Angela Davis, with her dress and her intelligence and her ability to speak out and stand up. An Alice Walker. And those are a lot of women that went through Spelman, like Pearl Cleage.”
The Quad has received very positive reviews from critics as well as viewers of the show.
One thing we can say is that it’s refreshing to see a Hollywood actress aging gracefully. Judging from these snaps, Jasmine Guy is not here for the fillers and botox.
But a little highlighter and contouring never hurt anybody. Take a look at these new pictures of her below. Doesn’t she look her age?
