Actress CCH Pounder has been entertaining audiences on television and film for almost 35 years and is considered one of the finest character actresses of her generation.
She was first featured in the film All That Jazz, and has gone on to appear in such critically acclaimed and successful films as Prizzi’s Honor, Bagdad Café, Postcards from the Edge, Benny & Joon, Face/Off, and Orphan, as well as in James Cameron’s Avatar as Mo’at. But it is television where the actress has truly left her mark having played Detective Claudette Wyms on the groundbreaking FX series The Shield. Since then she has had roles on several popular series including Justice League Unlimited, The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency, Warehouse 13, Revenge, and most recently Sons of Anarchy. Now Pounder returns to feature films with the new movie Home Again, which will be released on DVD and digital download beginning November 12th.
Home Again revolves around three Jamaicans that are deported from the U.S., Canada, and England, and must make their way in a land that they are not familiar with. Pounder plays Dulsay Mooreland, a single mother living in England with a teenage son (Stephen James) who is deported to Jamaica after committing a minor crime. Now Dulsay will do whatever she needs to in order to get her son back from Jamaica before he is heads down the wrong path. The film was directed and co-written by Sudz Sutherland (TV’s Degrassi: The Next Generation), and also stars Tatyana Ali (Kiss the Girls), and Lyriq Bent (Four Brothers).
