BEVERLY TODD (Virginia), winner of a People's Choice Award and a fourtime nominee for the NAACP Image Award, most recently captured critical attention in the role of Don Cheadle's mother in the Oscar-winning film "Crash.”

As a writer, producer and actor, Todd was first recognized for her prolific work in the 1970s. Her mentor at the onset of her film career was actor/director Sidney Poitier and she worked frequently with him in that decade, including appearences in the notable films "The Lost Man,” "They Call Me MISTER Tibbs!” and "Brother John.” Todd went on to co-star with Richard Pryor in the comedy "Moving,” with Whoopi Goldberg in "Clara's Heart” and with Diane Keaton in "Baby Boom.” In 1989 she starred opposite her "Bucket List” co-star Morgan Freeman in the inspiring drama "Lean On Me.” On television, Todd proved adept at both classy and streetwise urban roles.

Highlights include stand-out performances on the PBS Special "Six Characters in Search of an Author”; the esteemed miniseries "Don't Look Back: The Story of Leroy Satchel Paige,” in which she co-starred as Mrs. Paige opposite Oscar winner Louis Gossett Jr.; and as an integral part of the historical TV event "Roots,” playing the role of Fanta. More recently she played a recurring role on the acclaimed HBO series "Six Feet Under.” She currently has recurring roles on "Lincoln Heights” and "House M.D.”

Todd teamed with Whoopi Goldberg to co-produce the award-winning comedy special "A Laugh, A Tear, the Story of Black Humor in America.”

She is currently the executive producer of a forthcoming documentary on the life and career of Dionne Warwick.
