Salli Richardson

Brains, beauty and talent, Salli Richardson seems to have it all as one of our favorite actresses-turned-directors. While most of us know her from “A Low Down Dirty Shame” and her stint on the Syfy hit “Eureka,” it shouldn’t be overlooked that Richardson has also excelled in another role: directing. Her first try at directing came with two episodes of Ava DuVernay’s “Queen Sugar,” later followed up by director credits on “Underground,” “Dear White People,” and “Scandal.”
