    I know her from the hit black television show from the 90's. I used to watch it all the time when i was younger. Other then being the star on that show by playing the well to do black lady who wants to find a perfect man. She was a director for a couple of shows and got to work with her younger sister who has been in a couple of things her self. Lately though, she has been doing nothing with acting since the fact she just got recently married. All in all kim fields is a great actress and i wish her the best.moreless
