Angell S. Conwell

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.
