Reagan Gomez continues to take Hollywood by storm. Destined to be a star, Gomez was named after “Princess Reagan” from Shakespeare’s “King Lear.” Originally from Detroit, she was a regular in community theaters by age five, and soon after her family moved to Philadelphia, she was cast in the films “New Jersey Drive” and Spike Lee’s “Crooklyn.”
Gomez wanted more than what Philadelphia had to offer, so at age 14, she and her mother made a trip to Los Angeles with “Dateline” documenting their journey for an episode about young actors. Within a few of weeks of landing in Los Angeles, she had booked the remake of “Freaky Friday” with Shelley Long. Shortly after, Gomez landed a starring role on the Robert Townsend series “The Parent Hood,” and with his guidance and support, co-wrote one of the series’ most-watched episodes.
Her other television credits include “Love, Inc.,” “Carmen: A Hip Hopera,” “ER,” “That ‘70s Show,” “JAG” and “One on One.” Her feature film credits include “Never Die Alone” opposite DMX, “Love Don’t Cost a Thing,” “Beauty Shop” with Queen Latifah, “Hair Show” with Mo’Nique and Taraji P. Henson, “Jerry Maguire,” “Trois 3: The Escort” and “Doing Hard Time.”
When not in front of the camera, Gomez enjoys writing and has penned two television pilots. She also wrote and executive-produced the short film “This Time.”
She currently resides in Los Angeles with her music producer husband of 10 years, their 2-year-old daughter and the family’s two pit bulls.
