I think Rachel True on Half & Half is so cute. What can you tell me about her?

"My father was white, of German and Eastern European background, and my grandmother was a gypsy. My mother is black with some American Indian. I am the melting pot," laughs the native New Yorker, who says her personality is very much like the character of Mona Thorne she played on the UPN sitcom Half & Half from 2002 until its recent cancellation. She's 39 and has always looked young—she was almost 30 when she played a teenager in the 1996 horror movie The Craft.
