Born in the tiny town of Orangeburg, South Carolina, Angell Conwell
began her journey at a very young age. After winning countless awards
locally, she signed with Wilhelmina's Kids Division in New York at the
age of 10. Always one to challenge herself. She begged for her parents
permission to audition for August Wilson's highly acclaimed, "Fences".
After landing the role she realized, pursuing an career in entertainment
was exactly what she would set out to do.
At age 11, Angell and
her mother, with only enough funds to stretch a couple months,
temporarily relocated to Los Angeles for pilot season. It was quite a
eye opener for her. After a very trying season, on the exact day she was
scheduled to move back to Carolina, she booked the CBS pilot "On our
Own". Although, the pilot wasn't picked up to series, the network
noticed this vibrant young actress and soon called her back to Hollywood
to audition and eventually star as Meshach Taylor's daughter on the CBS
show "Dave's World".
Angell played the daughter of female rap star "Pepa" (Sandi Denton) in her first television pilot - "On Our Own" aka "On Our Way".
Angell played Omar Gooding's girlfriend in the film Baby Boy (2001).
Was the first African American student body president at her elementary school (Seven Oaks Elementary) in Columbia, South Carolina.
Played Raynell in the August Wilson play Fences at age 6 and had a standing ovation every night.
Daughter of Talent Agent Sheila Legette.
