prestigious Actor's Studio, moderated by Martin Landau. Sufe continued to refine her craft with The Meisner Technique, along with intensive sessions in cold reading with Jimmy DiStefano, Allan Miller's rehearsal workshop, and Wallace Audition Techniques.

Bradshaw has been featured in such stage productions as "The Nat Turner Rebellion," "A Raisin in the Sun," "Danny and the Deep Blue Sea," "The Glass Menagerie," "Hamlet," "Summer and Smoke," "All in the Timing," and "Through A Childs Eyes." The spirited actress soon began getting roles on a variety of popular television shows, including MTV's "Yo Momma," "ER," "Bones," "FlashForward," and TNT's "Trust Me," which starred Eric McCormack.

Bradshaw's career turned a corner when she played the female lead opposite "Prison Break" regular Leon Russom in the 2005 short film "The Les Brown Show." Soon after, she made her feature film debut in the 2006 independent drama "Speechless," followed by the 2007 made-for-TV movies "Black Woman's Guide to Finding a Good Man" and "Mr. Jackson's Neighborhood."

More recently, "Star Trek: Voyager's" Roxann Dawson directed Bradshaw in a moving 2008 episode of the CBS drama "Cold Case," titled "Ghost of My Child." In addition, the actress has made appearances on Carlos Mencia's sketch comedy series "Mind of Mencia" (Comedy Central), and the MTV show "The Hard times of RJ Burger." She continues to add features to her resume, with appearances in Paramount Pictures' "Dance Flick," written & directed by the Wayans Brothers (where she played "Keloid"), along with filmmaker J.J. Abram's 2009 science fiction blockbuster "Star Trek," playing the character Cadet Alien.

Those exciting roles have lead to a string of upcoming projects, including a role in the Hallmark movie "Fixing Pete"; a starring role in the feature film "Project X," directed by Mark Houghton; and the female lead in the Paul Merious-directed film "Obstruction, opposite "Duplicity's" Ulrich Thomsen, the actor who nabbed the lead role on the remake of the cult sci-fi classic "The Thing."

In her increasingly valuable spare time, Bradshaw is a community activist, having worked for the last five years volunteering for Humanity for the Homeless. She has also mentored teens for an acting and dance program called "Voices Unheard" at Fairfax High School and is a founding member of The Actor's Lounge, an open mike project for recently relocated actors who need a place to perform. Bradshaw has also found creative fulfillment practicing the art of spoken word for the last 10 years, reading alongside some of America's premiere poets, including many from Russell Simon's "Def Poetry."
