The Top Five Nia Long Movie Roles of Her Career

If she looks familiar it’s because she’s been around the industry a few times, in a good way. She had a recurring role on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and has been in several movies where she’s been viewed as a very strong and opinionated young woman. Long has made an impact in nearly every role she’s been in, especially since in the Fresh Prince her character was the one that eventually made the always irascible Will calm down and take stock of his life as the two characters began to move towards a relationship that would unfortunately go without being realized as the respective parents of the two characters end up getting married, making the two step-siblings and thus making things a bit weird.

She’s had a lot of great roles, but here are just a few.

5. Boyz N the Hood-Brandi

This was one of her first big roles and it wasn’t a huge part in the movie but it served a purpose. The entire film was about the harsh reality of life living with constant fear of drive-bys and vendetta’s that left everyone at a loss when their friends and family started taking bullets for no better reason than someone needing to prove that they were tough.

4. Big Momma’s House-Sherry Pierce

Big Momma’s House is what you would call an ill-conceived attempt on the part of the FBI to catch an ex-con by using his ex-girlfriend as bait. It gets a little confusing but the gist of it is that the undercover FBI agent posing as Big Momma is doing so in order to do his job and in the process falls in love and then has to confess the purpose of deception later on.

3. Are We There Yet?-Suzanne Kingston

Ice Cube portrays a real life player that sees the woman of his dreams and decides to pursue her, right up until he finds out that she has two kids. When the kids are supposed to go with their father he bails at the last moment, leaving Nick to come to rescue. He doesn’t like kids, never wanted kids, but by the end of the film he’s decided that he actually doesn’t mind them too much.

2. Stigmata-Donna Chadway

Donna is the best friend of Frankie and fellow hairdresser who works hard during the day and likes to party hard at night. She’s devoted to Frankie but can’t begin to understand what’s happening to her friend when she’s suddenly struck with horrible wounds that seem to appear out of nowhere and nearly kill her friend near the end of the film.

1. Friday-Debbie

Debbie is probably the toughest woman in this film next to Craig’s mom and that’s saying something. She’s the only one that will stand toe to toe with Deebo and not flinch away. In fact it’s that same fire that gets her knocked to the ground while standing up for her sister, prompting Craig to step in and defend her. She’s got the spark, but Deebo’s kind of a big guy and fire or no fire he packs a heavy punch.

Honestly it seems like Nia Long doesn’t get enough credit for what she does.
