Her characters varied, she could play anything from a wicked woman to a naive, girl next door. In "The Black King" Vivian gave a wonderful performance as a naive young woman caught between two men, one good, one bad. She had poise, personality, attitude and a natural knack for becoming her character, enacting the right move, gesture, look, and speech in her roles - that's what made her a most have in any show and a audience pleaser.
