Actress Wendy Raquel Robinson was born in Los Angeles, California.
Martin was Robinson’s introduction to the public. The year was 1993 and she followed that comedy debut with a guest starring spot on Thea and The Sinbad Show. In 1995 she co-starred in the Rondell Sheridan vehicle, Minor Adjustments on NBC, but it didn’t catch on. Perhaps some major adjustments were in order. Fortunately her next gig was well tuned.
Wendy Raquel Robinson is best known for her role as Regina “Piggy” Grier on The Steve Harvey Show, which ran for 6 seasons on the WB. She worked alongside Cedric the Entertainer. That relationship took her onto Cedric the Entertainer Presents. Other post-Steve Harvey Show appearances included The Parkers, All of Us and The New Adventures of Old Christine.
Robinson made a number of films. She’s featured in A Thin Line Between Love And Hate, Rebound, The Walking Dead, Ringmaster and Two Can Play That Game. In 2006 she signed on to play sports agent Tasha Mack in sitcom, The Game for the CW. The show was canceled after three seasons, but as fate would have it the run of The Game was not over. BET stepped in, relocated the show from L.A. to Atlanta and The Game played on; as does Robinson’s career.
When not in front of the camera she devotes much of her time to The Amazing Grace Conservatory. The school she co-founded has a mission to assist financially challenged deserving talent reach their potential in the field of the arts and media. Under Robinson’s guidance, the Conservatory has successfully trained thousands of young artists. So let’s add mentor to that list of credits for Wendy Raquel Robinson.
