Theresa Randle was quite a popular Hollywood face in the 90s but hasn’t acted since 2010. Now, she's reportedly set to return for Part Three of the famous “Bad Boys” franchise and we must say, Randle doesn't look like she's aged a bit.

Randle was born in December 1964 in South Central Los Angeles. She was fortunate to have a mother who encouraged her talents from a young age.

CATCHING THEM YOUNG

Her mom, Admonia Johnson had always wanted to be a performer herself but the strict Jehovah’s Witnesses home in which she was raised made it impossible. Johnson was not going to let the same thing happen to her kids.

Randle spent her childhood rehearsing and touring with a community arts group. She also took private acting lessons. She studied Dance and comedy long before gaining entrance into Beverly Hills High School as part of a special program for the exceptionally gifted.

WORKING HER WAY UP THE LADDER

She earned her first role immediately after college. It was a commercial, and Randle would go on to do similar work before her first big-screen break in the 1987 film, “Maid to Order.”

The role was a minor one, just as she played in subsequent film appearances. “Easy Wheels” and “Heart Condition” where she acted alongside Denzel Washington, are some of the other movies in which the delectable actress featured.

HER BIG BREAK

She gained considerable recognition when she acted alongside Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in the 1995 hit movie “Bad Boys,” but it wasn’t until 1996 when she got her first starring role in Spike Lee’s “Girl 6.”

Randle played a struggling, young New York actress who will do anything to make it in Hollywood. She takes up employment at a phone sex company to pay her bills, and her escapades on the job form the movie plot.

THE THING THAT MATTERED MOST TO RANDLE

In a 1996 Washington Post interview, Randle condemned the practice of assigning roles based on race preferences instead of talent. She said:

"I would never want to be in something because they decided to go black. I would love to be in it because you said, ‘This is a brilliant role. I saw Theresa Randle in that movie. I'd love to have her in it.'”

More recently, Randle, now 54, was ambushed by a paparazzi cameraman who tried to get her to make comments about a fellow actor. She kept it classy, refusing to interfere in another person’s business.

Go, Miss Randle! We sure would like to see her again in "Bad Boys 3."
