Cassandra made her film debut opposite Wesley Snipes in the HBO film, Disappearing Act. She spent last season as Michael Beach's young girlfriend in the hit NBC series Third Watch. A native of North Carolina and a graduate of the prestigious School of the Arts, she came to New York City after a years detour to study Shakespearean theatre with Sir Ian McKellan and Fiona Shaw at Oxford University. In New York she promptly landed the role of assistant district attorney Dana Kramer on Another World, followed by a three year stint as bad girl Denise Maynard on the CBS daytime drama As The World Turns. A tabloid favorite for her sense of style and fashion on the red carpet, Cassandra was soon discovered and signed by Halle Berry's manager, Vince Cirrincione. Cyxork 7 is her first major lead role in a film.
