Salli Richardson-Whitfield Biography, Age
She was born on November 23, 1967, in Chicago, Illinois, as Salli Elise Richardson. There she grew up with three brothers: Josh, Chad, and Nalin.
As she grew up, she started out as an athlete before finally making it as an actress. Already during her high school days, she started to play tennis. For her education, Salli attended the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools.
What would later dominate her life were the arts in the form of acting and singing. This could just as well be due to the influence of her mother, Marcia Harris, who ran a recording studio. Her life as an actress actually began with the support of her mother, who encouraged her to participate in auditions.
She played her first professional role at the age of 14 for a poetry production called The Tiger Wearing White Gloves. The poem, written by Gwendolyn Brooks, was organized by the Kuumba Workshop, with whom she was to work for many years to come.
Salli Richardson-Whitfield continued to work as an actress in various theatre productions until she got the chance to perform in Up Against the Wall in 1991. In 1992 she appeared in Prelude to a Kiss, Mo’ Money, and How U Like Me Now. Before 2000 she had already played important roles in many prominent films, and from then on she continued to play with others like Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid, I’m a Legend and The Sin Seeker.

Since Hollywood is very popular for rather short marriages, which one can hardly list all of them, Salli Richardson-Whitfield has been able to stay with her husband Dondre Whitfield since 2002. Before the two of them got married, however, the actress had already had several relationships in the past.
One of the first relationships she entered into was with the American singer Wanya Morris and then with Tupac Shakur. The thing that she had with one of the greatest rappers of all time was in the 1990s. She continued to date other men, including Marlon Wayans and Glenn Plummer.
She also dated Sean Combs from 1990 to 1991, and there were rumors that she had a thing with Matthew McConaughey from 2000 to 2001 and Anthony Treach Criss in 2001. That same year she started dating Dondre Whitfield before she entered into marriage a year later.

As an award-winning actor, he has starred in a number of films but is best known for his appearances on television shows such as The Cosby Show, All My Children, and Queen Sugar.
The connection between the duo is blessed with two children, Parker Richardson Whitfield, and Dre Terrell Whitfield.
