ANGELA ROBINSON

I feel like I was born to be the voice that says ‘Yes’.

Though today she is known to television audiences as "Ice Queen" Veronica Harrington on Tyler Perry's THE HAVES AND THE HAVE NOTS (currently in its fifth season on The OWN Network), Angela Robinson has had a long and impressive career on Broadway (Original Cast of THE COLOR PURPLE, WONDERFUL TOWN, BELLS ARE RINGING and PLAY ON!), in Regional Theatre, and as a twenty-year veteran of BIV.

Although Angela was raised in a supportive and loving household in Jacksonville, Florida, her family always hoped she would find a "real" career outside of the Arts.  She studied sociology in college, but Angela eventually moved to New York City and pursued her true passion for acting. She has since made it a part of her life's work to become a motivational speaker, helping artists find the courage to follow their own dreams.
