Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A full-figured, multi-talented black singer-actress, Lisa Nicole Carson first impressed TV viewers in the recurring role of Carla, the restaurateur who was the sometime girlfriend of Eriq La Salle's Dr. Peter Benton. on the hit NBC series "ER." She found even more fame as Renee, the sassy district attorney roommate of Calista Flockhart's defense counsel in the hit Fox series "Ally McBeal," a role she played regularly from 1997 to 2001. Born and raised in NYC, Carson honed her craft in several theatrical productions. Originally billed as Lisa Carson (she began using her full name professionally in 1995), she was a regular on the syndicated "The Apollo Comedy Hour" before making inroads on the big screen in "Let's Get Bizzee" (1993) and "Jason's Lyric" (1994). Before finding small screen stardom, she played the doomed singer who caught the attention of Denzel Washington's private eye in the underrated "Devil in a Blue Dress" (1995) and made impressions as Nia Long's friend in "love jones" and a conquest of ladies' man Samuel L Jackson in "Eve's Bayou" (both 1997).
