Jada Pinkett-Smith in HawthoRNe

Smith is undeniably a part of Hollywood royalty, but she got a chance to step out on her own when she starred as a nurse at a Virginia hospital in the TNT drama HawthoRNe for three seasons. The show was canceled earlier this year, but Pinkett-Smith promises there is "more to come." Hopefully, that means more of her on television.
