Youth and early career

Parker McKenna is of Native American, African American, Italian and Irish descent. She grew up alongside two siblings, and while growing up in Los Angeles, she was introduced to the acting world thanks to her mother who worked as an actress. Her parents later divorced, and although she remained related to both her parents, she remained mostly with her mother, but would later have three half-siblings through her father.

Even when she was very young, her mother began taking her to auditions, which led to her first professional opportunity, commercial work for the Kodak camera company.

A few years later, she resumed doing acting projects the way she loved them, which led to her working as a model for several Disney clothing catalogs. She also appeared in an advertisement for the Old Navy brand, a clothing company which is a subsidiary of Gap – the store has its main operations in California, which led to the opportunity. She also made an appearance in Macy Gray’s “Sweet Sweet Baby” music video.

My wife and children

In 2001, Posey got her first television role at the age of six, as a guest star on the “NYPD Blue” series. The police procedural show aired from the 1990s through the mid-2000s, following the story of a team of detectives working under a fictional Manhattan neighborhood.

The show was hugely popular in its day, earning praise for its realistic storylines and inherent grittiness.

However, it was her next project that launched her career, as she was cast in the sitcom “My Wife and My Children” as Kady, the youngest member of the family. The sitcom aired on ABC for five seasons and starred Damon Wayans as the patriarch of an upper-middle-class family whose members are semi-dysfunctional. The show depicts his unusual parenthood, the events the family goes through, and his imparting of life lessons using humor. The show was an unexpected success and won numerous awards during its run.

It became syndicated internationally, first airing in Canada and the UK before many other parts of the world. The show also starred Tisha Campbell-Martin, George O. Gore II and Jennifer Freeman. For her performances, Parker was nominated for two Young Artist Awards.

Life after my wife and children

While the show was very popular for a few years, interest in it eventually died out and, coupled with Wayans’ desire to pursue other projects, the show was canceled in 2005. While working on the show, Parker also had a few guest roles, including an appearance on the series “Strong Medicine.” The show was known for its focus on feminist issues, as well as its overall medical theme.

Interrupt and return

As she approached her teenage years, Posey focused heavily on acting, appearing in a production of “Restless Peace” and then working with the Blank Theater Company in a production of “Shock Therapy.” Wanting to finish her studies and take a break from acting, she then took a six-year break to do just that.

Although there was speculation that she would not return, she later made her presence known as a young adult, creating public accounts on various social media platforms.

Her return marked a very different image from her younger years, as she showed a more sensual side of herself, as she had worked on her figure and image much more. This quickly led her to return to acting in the film “This Is Real”, before appearing in “Streets of Money”. Subsequently, she made an appearance in the series “Snowfall” broadcast on FX – set in the 1980s, and dealt with the crack epidemic in Los Angeles.

Private life

In 2013, rumors were spread by blogger Sandra Rose claiming that Parker McKenna is bisexual, prompting her mother to respond, stating that she is straight and in a relationship with actor Mandela Van Peebles.

Their relationship soon became public. and they dated for two years before going their separate ways. Shortly after, she was spotted dating rapper Problem, spending time together in Hawaii, but nothing came of it. In 2018, she was romantically linked with YouTube personality Chris Sails, but it didn’t turn into a relationship.

Outside of her acting work, she devotes a lot of time to helping various charities, most notably with the Stand Up to Cancer Foundation which she has supported for over six years. She also aspires to one day start a non-profit organization herself.
