Underappreciated Actress of Color #52: Chrystee Pharris

I've been meaning to add this fabulous lady to the collection for a while; like many of you I saw her years ago when she portrayed Zach Braff's girlfriend Kylie on Scrubs for a few episodes.  For the record, the beginning of their relationship was really cute.  The reason their relationship ended was total bullshit.  I mean, you don't put Zach Braff opposite a gorgeous black woman like Chrystee and then deprive them of sex - that makes no goddamn sense whatsoever.

But that's another rant for another day.

In the meantime, she'd be great opposite Jon Foo let's get some fun facts out of the way.  Born in 1976, Chrystee Pharris grew up in Nevada, Ohio, and Connecticut, and graduated from Emerson College with a 3.50 GPA.  Cute and smart.  After Scrubs, she was also on Passions, where she completed hundreds of episodes.

Pharris fortunately stays busy; it's mostly TV work and short films, stage and her one-woman show In Search of O.

Her first ep in Scrubs.
