There are some actors that you see everywhere but can never quite figure out their names fast enough. Character actors don’t get enough dues but due to her current turn on Veep, I thought to feature Toks Olagundoye on this edition of the series . Born to a Nigerian father and a Norwegian mom, you may have seen her in a couple of TV shows and movies. Here are a few places where you may recognize her from:
I first encountered her as Jackie Joyner-Kersee on The Neighbors
As Hayley Shipton on Castle
As Kemi Talbot on Veep
You may have also seen her on an episode or two on The Fosters, The Gifted, Modern Family and Dirty John.
