Proving to be one of the busiest actresses in Hollywood, KERRY WASHINGTON (Vanessa Edwards), recently won the 2005 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Actress in a Motion Picture for Ray after having earned a nomination for an Independent Spirit Award for Best Actress for Lift in 2002. Most recently, she was seen in Mr. and Mrs. Smith starring Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, as well as Fantastic Four directed by Tim Story and based on the beloved Marvel Comics' superheroes. Washington will soon be seen in The Last King of Scotland opposite Forest Whitaker, scheduled for release in fall 2006.

Washington starred opposite Jamie Foxx as Ray Charles' wife, Della, in Ray. Previously, she played the lead role opposite Anthony Mackie in Spike Lee's She Hate Me, starred in Sidney Lumet's HBO film "Strip Search” with Ellen Barkin, Glenn Close and Maggie Gyllenhaal, and in the independent film Sexual Life opposite Tom Everett Scott, Dulé Hill, Anne Heche and Azura Skye.

Other film credits include Against the Ropes starring Meg Ryan, The United States of Leland opposite Don Cheadle, Kevin Spacey and Ryan Gosling, The Human Stain starring Nicole Kidman and Sir Anthony Hopkins, Bad Company starring Chris Rock and Sir Anthony Hopkins and directed by Joel Schumacher, and Lift written and directed by DeMane Davis and Khari Streeter. She's probably best known for her role in Save the Last Dance, in which she starred opposite Julia Stiles and Sean Patrick Thomas, for which Washington received a Teen Choice Award for Best Breakout Performance. Prior to that, Washington starred in the highly acclaimed independent film Our Song playing a wise but conflicted teen.

During her free time, Washington is an active supporter of the Creative Coalition, a group dedicated to raising awareness of First Amendment Rights and support of arts in education.
