Known by many as the first black scream queen and referred to as "The Original Gata" (a label she received in her music career), Monique Dupree is a hard working, multi-talented actress that has probably been in more Horror films than you can name at this point! On top of her accomplishments in the industry, she's also a mother of ten children - all of which are involved in the entertainment business as well.
Her involvement in Horror films started very early on in her career, notably having met Lloyd Kaufman and landing a role in the Troma produced, 'Pot Zombies', she has since starred in nearly 70 films! Perhaps her work ethic is something that just runs in the family, as her brother too, keeps busy all the same. Maybe you've heard of him; Tony Todd? While he may be the candyman, he certainly doesn't pull off "sweet" and scary quite like Monique does.
