Tasha Smith stars in Tyler Perry's "For Better or Worse" on TBS as Angela, reprising the role that she originated in the movies "Why Did I Get Married?" and its sequel "Why Did I Get Married Too?"

As a dedicated and consummate performer, Tasha Smith brings style and intense character portrayals to the screen. Her outstanding performances have garnered widespread reactions from audiences and critics alike. Tyler Perry was so impressed with her stellar work, that he cast her to star in three of his films, including the #1 box office hit, "Why Did I Get Married?," alongside Janet Jackson and Jill Scott, and its sequel. Her accolades are still resonating from "Tyler Perry's Daddy's Little Girls," opposite Idris Elba and Gabrielle Union.

On and off the silver screen, Tasha seems to naturally command attention. Most recently, she co-starred in the family sports drama, "The Longshots" (Dimension/The Weinstein Company), with Ice Cube and Keke Palmer. Smith can currently be seen in the #1 box office hit romantic comedy, "Couples Retreat" (Universal), starring opposite Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau, Jason Bateman and Faizon Love.

Tasha has played a wide range of roles in such feature films as "ATL" (Warner Bros.) with T.I. and Mykelti Williamson, "The Good Mother" (Sony/Screen Gems) with Angie Harmon and Joel Gretsch, and "The Whole Ten Yards" (Warner Bros.) with Bruce Willis and Matthew Perry. She has also starred in several independent films, including "Miles from Home" with Meagan Good and Ty Hodges, "Playa's Ball" with Allen Payne and Elise Neal, "Something Like a Business" with Kevin Hart and David Alan Grier, and "Pastor Brown" with Salli Richardson and Ernie Hudson.

Tasha is well-known for her critically-acclaimed portrayal of the drug-addicted Ronnie Boyce in HBO's Emmy Award-winning miniseries, "The Corner," directed by Charles S. Dutton. She has guest starred on such popular television shows as "Nip/Tuck," "Tyler Perry's Meet The Browns," "The Game," "Girlfriends," "All Of Us," "Without a Trace," and "Strong Medicine," among others. Smith has also served as the executive producer and host of her own talk show for the Oxygen Network, "Tasha Vision," guest hosted the late night show, "Later with Greg Kinnear," and appeared as the acting coach on "America's Next Top Model," and as a field correspondent on "The Tyra Banks Show."

Smith takes the time to share her inspirational life story through motivational speaking, as well as mentors emerging actors through the Tasha Smith Actors Workshop (TSAW). She is writing her first book, which incorporates the many exercises and techniques she teaches in her acting class that can be applied to everyday life. In her free time, the Camden, New Jersey native loves to workout at the gym, cook gourmet meals, and entertain friends at her home in suburban Los Angeles.
