ACROSS THE UNIVERSE

T.V. CARPIO (Prudence) was born in Oklahoma City but grew up in Hong Kong with her mother, Teresa Carpio, who was, and still is, a household name as a singer and entertainer in Asia. By junior high, her family had moved back to the States, where T.V.'s promising ice-skating career was curtailed by injury. Upon graduation from high school, she took time out to become fluent in Spanish before enrolling herself into the jazz program at the New School University in New York City.

Carpio appeared as a dancer in music videos for Bruce Springsteen and Whitney Houston, among others, which led to small parts on the television series "Law & Order” and "The Jury.” As an alto soprano, she sang with the Hong Kong Philharmonic in her mother's acclaimed Diva concerts, playing and singing the part of her mother as an 18- year-old.

From there, Carpio landed the role of Gail in Spike Lee's She Hate Me, followed by the role of Angela in Lee's Sucker Free City for Showtime.

She now lives in New York City and just finished a stint in "Rent” on Broadway.
