Stacey Dash is currently a celebrity contestant on NBC's daring new reality show "Celebrity Circus."
Born in the Bronx, Dash's vision was clear at the age of seven while playing the part of Bambi's mother in her elementary school play: she knew she wanted to act. She began acting professionally, appearing in some of the biggest hit shows of the time such as "The Cosby Show," "St. Elsewhere" and "Fresh Prince of Bel Air."
Dash made her feature film debut in 1988 starring with Richard Pryor in "Moving." Soon she was working continuously in films, appearing in "Mo' Money" opposite Daymon Wayans, "Renaissance Man" with Mark Wahlberg and "Black Water" with Julian Sands.
It was in 1995 that Dash helped create the classic character "Dionne" in Amy Heckerling's "Clueless," alongside Alicia Silverstone. With her natural flair for comedy and unmistakable beauty, Dash continued playing the role of "Dionne" in the spin-off series of the same name.
Dash has continued working steadily. She guest-starred on such television programs as "CSI" and "Eve," and the features "Gang of Roses" with Lil' Kim and "View From the Top," in which she starred with Gwenyth Paltrow and Christina Applegate.
Dash reunited with director Amy Heckerling to star in the feature "I Could Never Be Your Woman" alongside Michelle Pfeiffer that was released in 2007. Dash also recently completed production opposite Ving Rhames in "Phantom Punch," the Sonny Liston biopic.
In her spare time, Dash works extensively for children's charities, including Kids Race Against Drugs.
She currently lives in Los Angeles.
