A gifted singer-dancer-actress, Jasmine Guy achieved stardom as spoiled Southern belle Whitley Gilbert on "A Different World" (NBC, 1987-1993), a spin-off of "The Cosby Show" (NBC, 1984-1992). When star Lisa Bonet left the series, Guy became its leading lady and won six Outstanding Lead Actress Image Awards for her work as the increasingly complex Whitley. Branching out into directing and writing while on the show, she also released her debut album, 1990's Jasmine Guy, which launched three minor R&B hits, including "Another Like My Lover." Although she had several film roles, including "School Daze" (1988), "Harlem Nights" (1989) and "Stomp the Yard 2: Homecoming" (2010), Guy worked primarily on the stage and television, earning a series regular role on "Dead Like Me" (Showtime, 2003-04) and recurring on "The Vampire Diaries" (The CW, 2009-17). A multitalented entertainer who transcended her sitcom stardom which might have otherwise typecast her, Jasmine Guy continued to create fascinating work and to inspire fans across a variety of art forms decades after her initial success.
