IMDB Suzette Azariah Gunn

"Gunn's performance illuminates Kennedys
so well and shows the
vibrant contradictions."


'FunnyHouse of a Negro' 

Actress - Writer - Director


"To God be the Glory for whom without

I am nothing. I believe that the gift of artistry is one of the most powerful tools in the world that used authentically and with respect can heal, bring about change and enlighten."
Quote by Suzette Azariah Gunn​



Meet Suzette Azariah Gunn, a multi-talented force to be reckoned with! This New York native is a trained actress, writer, and director, who has mastered her craft. She's got degrees in Acting from Howard and Oxford, and has starred in numerous TV, film, and theatre productions, earning rave reviews from the NY Times, Variety, NY Post and NY Sun.


But she's not just an actress, folks. Suzette is also a private acting coach, teaching her clients to find their true selves while creating authentic and nuanced characters.

Her passion for empowering young girls and helping people of color detect and fight skin cancer is inspiring. She's even survived melanoma herself!

Suzette's directorial debut film "Spare Change" was a red-carpet premiere chosen by the HBO Latino International Film Festival in 2010 and her play "Phoenix" sold out to rave reviews at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in NY. She's also an accomplished author, with two books under her belt, "A-Z Diaries" and "Loss Love & Life."

In short, Suzette is a true star in her own unique way, breaking barriers and creating captivating stories that speak to the human experience.


The cast is universally outstanding. Suzette Azariah Gunn presents a conflicted Nya, a mother who has done everything she can to make the right decisions, not only for her students, but for her son. In spite of this, her wards are failing. The woman's physical and emotional stress is obvious in what is a stunning performance.


The physical aging that the actors do is subtle but spot-on. Gunn ages from 17 to 60 and doesn’t play Christina at 60-ish hunched-over and fragile, just a little slower and stiffer.
Gunn and Alexander make us feel that we know these people, and, even when they are foolish or infuriating, we care about them.
