The tragic news came in today that the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air actress Galyn Gorg passed away at the age of fifty-five and now, her cause of death has been revealed…
She was only fifty-five.
And she was raised in a family full of actors and actresses.
And the actress went on to major in liberal arts at Santa Monica City College.
Trained in the styles of jazz, ballet, Haitian, Afro-Samba, Afro-Cuban, West African, hip-hop, hula, and funk, she trained with the Roland Dupree Dance Academy and the Alvin Ailey Summer Program.
She then studied acting with, among other groups, Improv for the People, The Groundlings, and the Pacific Resident Theater.
These include the Middle East, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Canada as well as other parts of the world.
She acted in TV shows such as It’s Your Move, The A-Team, and Amazing Stories.
She starred in Robocop 2 which gained her more exposure in Hollywood.
And that was in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
And even though her appearance was only brief, it was a very impressive role to land.
Including in Star Trek: Voyager, Parks and Recreation, and How To Get Away With Murder.
She’s lived a very successful life.
