Toy Connor (born April 7 in Brooklyn, New York) is a Caribbean-American actress, rapper, singer and songwriter. Her career began upon meeting casting director, Jackie Brown-Karman, in 1999 through a request to attach actors to a script Connor had written; she was granted a meeting to discuss her script at HBO, where the casting director then asked if she would be interested in auditioning for a new HBO Series, The Corner. She ultimately landed the role of Tyreeka Freamon after auditioning for David Simon, Charles S. Dutton, and David Mills. The Corner received three Emmy Awards in 2000. Connor went on to star and co-star in numerous Emmy Award-winning shows between the years of 2000 and 2010.
