  • Go Tika Sumpter! I always saw her as the annoying younger sister to Renee Goldsberry’s amazing Evangeline on OLTL. Who would have thought that of the two actresses, she would be the one with the hot career? I LOVE it! Good to see that she is striving for her dreams and not paying attention to any naysayers. I wish her all the best and continued success in her career.
