Cleveland's rebellious new teenage stepdaughter.
Reagan Gomez-Preston continues to take Hollywood by storm. Destined to be a star, Gomez-Preston was named after "Princess Reagan" from Shakespeare's "King Lear." Originally from Detroit, she was a regular in community theatres by age five. Soon after her family moved to Philadelphia, she was cast in the films "New Jersey Drive" and Spike Lee's "Crooklyn."
Gomez-Preston wanted more than what Philadelphia had to offer, so at age 14, she and her mother made a trip to Los Angeles with "Dateline" documenting their journey for an episode about young actors. Within a few of weeks of landing in Los Angeles, she had booked the remake of "Freaky Friday" with Shelley Long.
Shortly after, Gomez-Preston landed a starring role on the Robert Townsend series "The Parent Hood," and with his guidance and support, she co-wrote one of the series' most-watched episodes on teen rape. Her other TV acting credits include "Love, Inc.," "Carmen: A Hip Hopera," "ER," "That '70s Show," "JAG" and "One on One." Her feature film credits lead roles in "Never Die Alone" opposite DMX, "Love Don't Cost a Thing" and "Beauty Shop" with Queen Latifah. Gomez's additional film credits include the independent films "Doing Hard Time" and "Trois 3: The Escort."
When not in front of the camera, Gomez-Preston enjoys writing and has penned two television pilots. She currently resides in Los Angeles with her music producer husband of 10 years, their 2-year-old daughter and the family's two pit bulls.
