Stickney may have a flair for this tough mom thing! She plays Bird and Trane's mom in Gun Hill , but you may remember her playing Winston's mother in the film How Stella Got Her Groove Back . Stickney brings a sense of struggle and strength to her character that only motherly instincts can influence.

Coming from the esteemed William Esper Studio in New York, this Fort Knox, Kentucky native brings an uncanny realness to her character Janelle Evans, the longtime girlfriend of Bird.

Having acted in shows like NYPD BlueHawthoRNe  and Boston Legal , Hinds is no stranger to crime, which makes her perfect as crime boss Arlene Carter, so much so that executive producer/director Reggie Rock Bythewood rewrote the originally male character for Hinds.

Pretty much unrecognizable in photos, Aronov has no trouble taking on the undercover Bronx crime world as Danny Raden.
