Ellen: Wanda Sykes The Hot Flashes Preview
Wanda Sykes got her big break in movies with 2000’s Nutty Professor II: The Klumps, playing the character of Chantal. Her biggest year in films, however, was 2006. She was in a total seven films that year, including Clerks II, Over The Hedge, and Brother Bear 2, among other films.
Ellen: Wanda Sykes Was In The NSA
Even though she is an actor now, you might be interested to hear that she didn’t start out in a profession even close to acting. Wanda Sykes was originally a procurement officer for the National Security Agency (NSA) for five years after she got out of college.
Her family lineage is also of interest. Her family was on PBS’s Finding Your Roots With Henry Louis Gates Jr., where her lineage was traced back to a 1683 court case involving her paternal ninth great-grandmother Elizabeth Banks, and an indentured servant and free white woman. The indentured servant gave birth to a biracial child that inherited her mother’s free status, making it the only black family rooted in freedom traced back that far in history.
It looks like Wanda Sykes has quite the interesting past! I wonder if she’ll share any of these stories with us tomorrow?
