Clarinda Ross

Clarinda started her career at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, Georgia. She became "locally famous" as a stage actress in Atlanta and throughout the southeast, touring her one-woman show, From My Grandmother's Grandmother Unto Me, which was filmed for Public Broadcasting. Georgia Gov. Zell Miller appointed her a Cultural Ambassador and she performed in the 1994 and 1996 Cultural Olympiads. After performing on the last season of In the Heat of the Night (1988), Carroll O'Connor suggested she move to Los Angeles; there she met and married longtime character actor Googy Gress.
