Cree Summer tugged at viewers’ heart strings as the quirky Freddie Brooks on A Different World. We immediately fell in love with her wild curls and bohemian style. Though she’s most remembered for that role, kids might recognize her from the over 100 animated characters she lent her voice too. From Penny in Inspector Gadget to Elmyra Duff in Tiny Toon Adventures to Susie Carmichael on Rugrats and All Grown Up to Princess Kida in Atlantis: The Lost Empire, she’s been keeping busy.
Cree’s beauty look on A Different Wolrd changed the way curly-haired mavens embrace their hair—or atleast it influenced me. That hair, along with her gorgeous full brows and natural understated makeup, embodied the freedom that Cree just seemed to exude.
