Pamela Suzette Grier

From her first featured role in The Big Doll House, Pam Grier was THE female action star of the 1970s, dominating the blaxplotation genre along with appearances in several horror flix.
Honing her acting skills, she moved to drama and comedy film & tv work, including multi-episode arcs on Crime Story and Miami Vice and as a regular on Linc's.
She's a cancer survivor, and a regular on The L Word.
