Tia Mowry

Tia Mowry portrays Melanie Barnett, an intelligent young medical student, who is also the girlfriend of a new NFL third-string receiver, on The CW's new comedy The Game.

Mowry was born in Gelhausin, Germany, to retired military parents, giving her the infamous label military brat. It wasn't until she turned 14 that she decided to take on the entertainment world.

In 1993, when she and her family took the big leap and moved to California, Mowry along with her twin sister, Tamera Mowry, landed the series Sister, Sister. The show aired for six seasons and went on to win two NAACP Image Awards and four Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards.

Recently, Mowry worked with her sister Tamera again in a Disney Channel original movie, Twitches, which brought in 21 million viewers, making it the third highest-rated original movie for the network. Currently, she has just finished production on the movie American Standards, opposite James Brolin, and she is also the voice of Sasha on the animated series Bratz, following the adventures of the fashion dolls.

Mowry has been involved in many charities such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Elizabeth Glazer Pediatric Aids Foundation and charities focusing on research for children fighting cancers.

Mowry is a graduate of Pepperdine University. She also studied humanities and Italian in Europe for several months.

She now lives in Los Angeles with her teacup Chihuahua, Chico.
