Despite being away for work on Valentine's Day, "A Low Down Dirty Shame" star Salli Richardson expressed her love for her husband, actor Dondré Whitfield, and her children in another form.
Actress Salli Richardson, best known for her role as Angela in the 1994 film "A Low Down Dirty Shame," didn't let the distance hinder her from showing love to her husband, Dondre Whitfield.
The 53-year-old actress, who has been hard at work, took to Instagram to share two throwback pictures dedicated to Whitfield, a former "The Cosby Show" star. The couple has been married since 2002.
MISSING THE WHOLE FAMILY
In her first post, Richardson shared Whitfield's picture, which was taken outdoors. The Emmy-nominated actor wore a gray shirt and dark glasses while looking at the camera.
"I miss you every minute I’m away. Happy Valentine’s Day my love."
Richardson shared another loving photo of her husband with their two children, Parker and Dre Terrell, and their family dog. She wrote in her post that her family is "the best family."
Despite her job demands, Richardson noted in her message that her husband and her children are her motivation to work harder and become a better person every day.
Many fans in the comment section felt the actress's deep love for Whitfield and her children. A user greeted her and commented, "I'm hoping that you get home soon."
TAKING THE DIRECTOR'S PATH
In September, Richardson signed on a two-year deal with HBO to direct and executive produce several projects, including major shows under the WarnerMedia-led cable television network.
She also became the voice behind Disney’s animated series "Gargoyles."
HER NEW PLAYING GROUND
The actress-turned-director will be an executive producer for the upcoming drama series "The Gilded Age." She is also expected to direct two episodes of Adam McKay's untitled LA Lakers project.
The Laker's project, which will feature NBA icons, is based on author Jeff Pearlman’s 2014 book "Showtime: Magic, Kareem, Riley, and the Los Angeles Lakers Dynasty of the 1980s."
Richardson, who started her career in Hollywood in the 1970s, has appeared in over 50 roles in TV, film, and theater. She also became the voice behind Disney’s animated series "Gargoyles."
While acting, she explored film-directing in "Prelude to a Kiss," "Mo' Money," and "Posse." In one of her recent directing stints, Richardson directed her husband's TV show, "Queen Sugar."
