I remember the first time I saw Rachel True was her role as the Catholic high school witch in the 1996 film The Craft. That was one of my favorite films that year (next to Scream of course). She was the cute girl with those georgeous wavy curls that went on for days. Remeber the Gregg Araki film Nowhere? The teenage-orgy induced-pill popping film about L.A. spoiled brats with way too much time on their hands. She played Mel the party girl that just couldn't get enough.
Of course who could forget her role as Mary Jane in Half-Baked? She had Dave Chapelle completely smitten over her and who thought she was going to be in a role where she plays a straight laced good girl? I liked the change of roles for her, we all fell in love with Mary Jane. Or what about the film New Best Friend shot right here in the great state of North Carolina? She's so good at playing the bitchy teen roles. It's sooooo her forte. She even had a short-lived TV show called Half & Half. It had a nice 4 year run and it was my evening delight after watching Girlfriends. However, after the show was cancelled...she sorta dissapeared. What happened??
There are a few films that appear under her IMDB resume after the TV show ended including a stint on the gay themed Logo show Noah's Arc. However, no one has heard or seen her since. I want to see Rachel come back. Now I know the bitchy teen roles are over for her, but perhaps we can see her in something...somewhere! Rachel come back to the silver screen please! I miss seeing you in the indie circuit. I miss seeing you period! If anyone knows of Rachel's whereabouts please contact us!
