Kellie played the object of Steve Urkel’s affections on Family Matters, Laura Winslow. Although she had starred in commercials prior to this role, being Laura gave her the most recognition. After the fact though, she did a few roles but not much, and the recognition for them didn’t come. Most people really didn’t even know her real name and stuck with calling her “Laura.” In recent years, she has married and had a child but has used her fame to help a new generation of actors. She launched a fine arts program for the youth at Howard University’s Children’s Theater.
