*Victoria Rowell’s illustrious career as an actress, writer, director, and producer in the entertainment industry has undoubtedly served as an inspiration to many upcoming black entertainers.
As an Emmy-nominated and a recipient of multiple NAACP awards for her roles in “The Young & the Restless” (1990), “Diagnosis Murder with Dick Van Dyke” (1993-2001), “Eve’s Bayou,” and “Dumb and Dumber,” Rowell does not show any signs of slowing down.
She is currently in her fourth season of “The Rich & The Ruthless,” which she directs and stars on BET+ and stars in the new film title “Birdie,” now streaming on PureFlix.
“Birdie,” tells the story of a broken and repentant young man’s struggle to become a loving father.
A recently released convict, Luke Bellamy, returns to his hometown, where most know he only served a seven-year sentence for a drunken accident that killed his girlfriend and his daughter without a mother.
His eight-year-old daughter is doing well being raised by her grandparents, who want nothing to with him. But his love for his daughter makes him more determined to get to know her.
