On Set, in the Pool Hall, and navigating the big city in her Hightops!

Shamika Cotton is best known for her controversial portrayal of Michael's drug addicted mother (Raylene Lee) on HBO's critically acclaimed show The Wire. Currently she can be seen on ABC's new show Forever as tech specialist, Anita.

When she's not on set, she spends her time hunting for the latest hightop sneaker fashions and sharpening her billiards skills in the pool hall. So whether you're a fan of her acting work; can appreciate a kick-ass pair of hightops; or share her love/obsession with the game of billiards, you've come to the right place. Thanks for stopping by!
