Although I had performed in lots of comedy plays, this was my first time acting in a sitcom. I had so much fun working with the cast.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 29, 2014
Angela Ray, a native of Fayetteville, will guest star on the television show, Love Thy Neighbor. She will make her first appearance on Wednesday, January 29th. She will also recur in the same role later in the season.
A graduate of South View High School, last year was a busy one for Ray. She released a new book, Rays of Motivation in January. She started a new coaching program through her company, Angela Ray International, working with small business owners on developing their voices as speakers on stage and writers on the page so that they can increase their income, impact, and influence.
“I was thrilled to book the role on the show,” Ray said. “Although I had performed in lots of comedy plays, this was my first time acting in a sitcom. I had so much fun working with the cast.” Ray previously has appeared on the television shows, One Tree Hill and Dawson’s Creek.
Aside from acting, Ray still devotes a great deal of her time inspiring youth as a speaker. An honors graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill, she got her start developing her skills as a speaker as she grew up in Fayetteville. When she was student at South View Middle (then a junior high), Ray represented the state of North Carolina in the National Civic Oration Contest after defeating participants in three levels of competition. Most recently, she was the keynote speaker at Garden City Community College in Garden City, Kansas for its annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration.
Although she currently calls Atlanta home, Ray still visits North Carolina regularly. She will be conducting an acting workshop in Durham on February 16th. Two days later, she will be the Black History Month speaker at Johnston Community College in Smithfield.
