Actress Lynn Whitfield is now 65 years old. -and she still looks as pretty and as glamorous as ever. The actress stepped out last night at the BAFTA Los Angeles + BBC America TV Tea Party 2018 held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel. She was breathtaking.
In the show Greenleaf - the production team often plays down Lynn's beauty. But last night she was looking as great as ever.
Before Greenleaf she had a long and illustrious acting career. Lynn starred in the highly popular but deeply troubled Follies Bergere headliner-turned civil rights activist Josephine Baker. In the HBO biopic The Josephine Baker Story (1991),
She also had an upsurge in the late 90s with roles in the films A Thin Line Between Love and Hate (1996) and Gone Fishin' (1997) . She also earned excellent reviews for her supporting work in Eve's Bayou (1997), a role that drew on her Louisiana heritage.
More quality TV came her way when she starred as an unsympathetic role in the Oprah Winfrey miniseries The Wedding(1998), where she again had to cover a long life span, this time from 19 to 47, and Redemption (2004) with Jamie Foxx, an urban film that chronicled the turbulent life of (now) imprisoned L.A. Crips gang founder Stan "Tookie" Williams.
