Zelda Harris

The lead star in Spike Lee’s semi-autobiographical drama, Zelda Harris played Troy, the only girl in a house full of rambunctious boys. In real life, the New York City born-and-bred talent was making a come-up for herself as Crooklyn served as her biggest role at the time. She managed to double-down on her work with Spike, playing Ray Allen‘s little sister in 1998’s He Got Game. According to her own admission, the lack of roles for capable young Black actresses forced Zelda to continue her education instead of hitting the big screens. The young upstart earned her degree from Princeton University in 2007.
