Birth Place: Queens, New York City, New York

Fans all over the world knew Tichina Arnold for her role as the no-nonsense Pamela on the hit sitcom "Martin" (Fox,1992-97). Born in Queens, New York in 1969, Arnold knew it was her destiny to become an actor practically from birth. She attended Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, and landed her first on-screen role in the TV movie "The Brass Ring" (Showtime, 1983) when she was just 14 years old. Her big break would come just three years later when she was cast as one of the girl group singers in "Little Shop of Horrors" (1986). After a turn in the comedy "How I Got Into College" (1989), Arnold won her role on what was then a brand new series starring comedian Martin Lawrence. "Martin" would prove to be a massive hit, and ran from 1992 to 1997. Arnold would later re-team with Lawrence in 2000 when she appeared in the comedy "Big Momma's House" (2000), but she would continue to find the most success in the realm of TV, taking on a co-starring role on the Chris Rock executive produced series "Everybody Hates Chris" (Paramount, 2005-09), and later earning acclaim for her role on the dramatic series "Survivor's Remorse" (Starz!, 2014-). She next co-starred on the culture-clash comedy "The Neighborhood" (CBS 2018- ) with Cedric the Entertainer, Beth Behrs and Max Greenfield.
