Biography

Jada Pinkett Smith has proven herself to be one of today's most versatile and gifted young actresses. Recently, she landed one of Hollywood's most sought after roles, as Niobe in The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions.

Before The Matrix sequels, Smith was last seen in a pivotal role opposite her husband, Will Smith, in Ali. Other film credits include Fox Searchlight's Kingdom Come, opposite LL Cool J and Whoopi Goldberg, and a starring role in Spike Lee's critically acclaimed Bamboozled, for which she received an Image award nomination. Smith also starred in the title role for New Line Cinema's Woo and was featured in Miramax's Scream 2, with Neve Campbell. She had a cameo role as the young journalist in the critically acclaimed film, A Return to Paradise, starring Vince Vaughn, Anne Heche, and Joaquin Phoenix for Polygram.

Smith has amassed an impressive list of motion picture credits including the international box-office hit The Nutty Professor, in which she starred opposite Eddie Murphy, and New Line Pictures' popular urban-action drama Set It Off, helmed by F. Gary Gray, co-starring Queen Latifah and Vivica A. Fox.

After making her film debut in 1993 in Menace II Society, directed by Allen and Albert Hughes, she went on to star in The Inkwell opposite Larenz Tate and Jason's Lyric with Allen Payne. She drew widespread praise for her first comedic performance in Keenen Ivory Wayans' A Low Down Dirty Shame, and turned in a standout performance in Demon Night, director Ernest Dickerson's big screen adaptation of the popular HBO series Tales From the Crypt.

A native of Maryland, Smith studied dance and acting at the Baltimore School of Arts and the North Carolina School of the Arts. Her big break came when she landed a role on the long-running NBC series A Different World.

Education
Attendee

Founded in 1980, the Baltimore School for the Arts (BSA) is a four-year high school with a unique mission: to provide young people who aspire to a career in the arts with intensive, pre-professional training in the arts combined with a rigorous, college preparatory curriculum. Students at the school pursue one of four disciplines - the visual arts, music (vocal or instrumental), theatre (acting or theatre production), and dance - along with a challenging academic curriculum. Working with a distinguished faculty, our students learn the fundamentals of their artistic discipline in an environment that emphasizes professionalism and scholarship. Instructors in the arts are among the region's leading visual artists, musicians, actors, and dancers. The academic faculty is a select group of certified teachers skilled at communicating knowledge and sharing the joy of learning. Nearly 400 students attend the school, coming from public, private, and parochial schools in and around Baltimore. After graduation, our students gain admission to leading conservatories, art schools, liberal arts colleges and professional companies. For the most recent list of college acceptances and more about BSA's college counseling program, click here. Students are selected for admission to the Baltimore School for the Arts through yearly auditions. The audition process is designed to identify students with the potential for a career in the arts. Admission is based solely on an audition/portfolio review in the student's art discipline, conducted by the school's professional arts faculty. Our facilities, housed in the landmark Alcazar building and an historic brownstone on Cathedral Street, are specially designed to support the school's mission. They include a recital hall, music practice rooms, art studios, costume and scene shops, and rehearsal spaces. In August 2014, the school opened its state-of-the-art Center for Collaborative Arts & Technology located in the school's library. A performance hall, a black box theatre, and a visual arts exhibition space provide professional-level showcases for the performances and a venue for the community to enjoy a range of performances and exhibitions each year. For location and parking, click here. BSA also offers a free after school arts instruction program, TWIGS, as well as a variety of other educational programs for City Schools. BSA is one of the most successful public schools in the state of Maryland and one of the five best arts high schools in America.
