Holly Robinson Peete: Vanessa Russell
The gorgeous actress captured viewers hearts with her role as Mark’s love interest, but she has come a long way since those days. From penning her own children’s book My Brother Charlie, which won her an NAACP Image Award, to acting in latest 21 Jump Street, she is one busy woman.
Holly is an active mom and largely involved in educating people about autism, a condition one of her children has. Recently, she attended the 26th Anniversary Carousel of Hope Ball.
