  • New York City native Rachel True longed to be an actress from her youngest years, watching the performances of her stepmother, renowned stage actress Verona Barnes. True's own first break came when she was cast for several episodes of The Cosby Show in 1991, as a friend of Theo's. She would later score recurring television roles on Beverly Hills 90210, The Drew Carey Show, Once and Again, and HBO's Dream On.In 1993, True moved to Los Angeles, which kick-started her film career. Her first notable appearance was opposite Chris Rock in the rap parody CB4 (1993). She next starred alongside Alyssa Milano in Embrace of the Vampire (1994), then stayed with the occult theme for the more widely seen witch flick The Craft (1996). True plays the most underwritten of four young Wiccan worshipers (opposite Fairuza Balk, Robin Tunney, and Neve Campbell), one of several roles she has taken that was originally written for a white actress. She and Campbell became best friends as a result of working together on the project.True ventured into indie filmmaking with Gregg Araki's Nowhere, the third installment in his "teen apocalypse trilogy," in which she won some acclaim for her portrayal of Mel, a sexually confused central cog of Araki's dystopian soap opera. She returned briefly to more commercial fare with Half Baked (1998), in which she plays Dave Chappelle's love interest and one of the few non-stoned characters. Since then it's been back to lesser-seen films -- most notably as a veteran rave girl in Greg Harrison's Groove (2000) -- as well as her television work.

QUOTES FROM Rachel True CHARACTERS

Rochelle
She probably doesn't have any powers anyways. [Bonnie snickers and they turn to walk away]
Sarah
[Sarah turns, pissed off, the wind starts blowing really hard and the clouds rolls in. A lightning bolt hits a branch and falls, almost hitting Bonnie and Rochelle who manages to jump out of the way. They look at her in horror.] Be careful. You don't want to end up like Nancy.
Nancy
[Nurse looks into a room. Nancy is strapped into a bed in a psych ward] AH!!! [nurse walks in] It's you! It's you! He gave me power! I can do whatever I want now! I can fly! [nurse injects Nancy in the side] I can--OW! Ow, ow!
Nurse
He gave you something honey, but it ain't the power.
Nancy
But I can fly! I'm flying! I'm flying! I'm flying! I'm flying! I'm flying! I'm flying! I'm flying! I'm flying!
Lirio
Well then understand this: whatever you send out, you get back times three.
Rochelle
Wait, we didn't read that in any book.
Lirio
No, it's part of a basic spiritual truth, said in may ways in many faiths. "Do on to others as you would have them do onto you."
