Mini Bio (1)

Beautiful multi-talented Sheila Guyse was a popular, well-loved figure on the stage and screen of the Dorothy Dandridge era. Some critics even felt she was a better actress than Dandridge, some said if Sheila ever decided to go to Hollywood, she would give her a run for her money. She appeared in three independent black films, "Boy, What A Girl", "Sepia Cinderella" and "Miracle In Harlem" giving magnificent performances in all of them.

Guyse wasn't an experienced or trained actress but you never know it. She appeared in many stage productions such as "Lost in the Stars" and "Finian's Rainbow" which were both long-running. Her singing voice was as beautiful as she was, divine, sweet, easy on the ears whether singing jazz, pop, or gospel.

Very popular in the 1940s and 1950s, Sheila graced many covers of magazines like Jet, Ebony, Our World and many others, reviews were always flattering.
