Biracial actress Rachel True, who’s known for the film “The Craft” and the television show “Half & Half,” split her time between New York City and upstate New York as a child. In the latter location, she found herself one of the few brown faces around. True has African-American and Caucasian ancestry. “I was walking my dog once and we got onto this guy’s lawn a little, and he came running out with a shotgun! I don’t think those people had ever seen a black family that wasn’t on TV,” she recalled in an interview. Already interested in acting as a youth, True recalled her school preventing her from playing a blind child in a production of “The Miracle Worker.” She said, “They were like 'you have to be a maid.’ I was like ‘I just want to be a blind girl. I don't have to be Helen.’ They wouldn’t let me so in the end I scrapped the whole idea. That’s when I came home and I remember saying ‘I guess I'm going to have to write my own parts,’ and I still think that’s true.”
