Sanaa lathan dating history
Those loving, supportive parents, the extremes of the public schools of New York City and the riches of the 90210 Beverly Hills High, served to build, within Sanaa, a humble spirit, a competitive nature, and a full awareness of self.Being academically competitive and wanting to attain proficiency to become a successful professional, Sanaa began her college matriculation, attending the University of California at Berkeley in the liberal arts division, studying English.While an undergraduate, she continued to nurture the latent desire to express herself through the arts by performing with the "Black Theatre Workshop".Nearing the end of her college days with thoughts of what her next move would be, Sanaa considered the natural progression of an English major to law school, but her fate was sealed as she was encouraged to apply to the Masters program at the Yale School of Drama by a recruiter.As a child, she was nurtured in athletics and the arts, through training in Gymnastics and Dance.
She was exposed to the life of entertainment and stars at a very early age, which had a profound impact upon her life.
Desiring to live in New York near her mom, she began her career performing in off-Broadway productions, such as "Por' Knockers" and "A Movie Star Has to Be Born in Black and White".
After seeing her perform in a number of productions and realizing her skill and ambitions, her father counseled and encouraged her to move to California, to get into the hot-bed of action that Hollywood could provide her in the business.
She even obtained television series regular roles in two very short-lived sitcoms -- Built to Last (1997), that never got national distribution, and the two seasons-canceled NBC sitcom called Late Line (1998), in the role of an aggressive talent broker for a network news show.
Honing her skills and returning to her passion for the stage, Sanaa also performed at the South Coast Repertory Theatre in the play, "Our Town", as well as other productions, while pursuing her career in television and the movies.
