MadameNoire Featured Video

We love getting updates on the wonderful castmembers of A Different World, the iconic and unparalleled show about Black college life. Do you remember Cree Summer aka Freddie, the bohemian alternative chic who was either fighting the power or spouting the joys of veganism? Okay, so I don’t remember exactly if she ever preached about a meat-free diet. But in any case, I loved her enthusiasm for all things non-status quo.

The real life actress behind Freddie has been working steadily since the show ended in 1993. She was only 23 then and quickly capitalized on her quirky voice to launch a career voicing animated cartoon series. In her illustrious voice over career, she’s even gotten to work as the voice of the green M&M in commercials.  Now 42, Summer is happily married with a new baby girl named Brave (we’ve been unable to confirm the age of her daughter).

Summer recently talked to about her hair life and her new family life. Check it out!
