Celebrity Scoop: Yvette Nicole Brown

By , January 28, 2010

Zap2It has an article about Community star Yvette Nicole Brown. Here is the highlight:
A solid role on a sitcom gives an actor recognition and a steady paycheck as NBC’s “Community,” airing Thursdays, has done for Yvette Nicole Brown, who plays Shirley. But it took a supporting role on a kids cable station comedy to give her celeb status.

It was her stint as Helen, the loud theater manager on Nickelodeon’s “Drake & Josh,” that made Brown a star among kids.

“The greatest gift I got from ‘Drake & Josh’ is I am ridiculously famous with children,” Brown, 38, says. “If you are going to be famous, that’s the segment to be famous with. I cannot walk down the street without a face peeking out from behind a tree. It’s a ball of joy that greets me everywhere in the world. It was my first bit of steady employment.”

“Shirley is becoming me at a rate I am really afraid of,” Brown says. “I love people and am such a cheerleader.”
