Spunky and intelligent African-American actress who played strong female characters in a career that was arguably under appreciated by Hollywood, possibly for her refusal to play stereotypical Negro characters on screen. Cash's first film appearance was a minor role in the thriller Klute (1971), however she so impressed the right people that Cash was cast in the female lead in an inter-racial relationship with screen legend Charlton Heston in the post-apocalyptic horror of The Omega Man (1971). Plus, she was perfect as the sensitive nurse "Lorrie" falling in love with troubled rookie police officer Stacy Keach in The New Centurions (1972) and she made a wonderful "Goneril" in the critically praised TV production of Great Performances: King Lear (1974).
Strangely enough, Cash struggled to land meatier roles in feature films, but she was kept pretty busy guest starring in key TV shows of the 1970s and 1980s including Good Times (1974), Starsky and Hutch (1975), Barney Miller (1975), Hill Street Blues (1981) and many more. Sadly, Cash passed away from cancer on October 31st 1995.
