Bianca Lawson, who portrayed Kendra, the slayer called to replace Buffy when she died
momentarily at the end of season one, has stayed busy since Drusilla killed her. She's
appeared in several big projects, including the hit Save the Last Dance, with Julia Stiles,
Bones, a big screen thriller starring Pam Grier and Snopp Doggy Dogg, and Feast of All
Saints, a Showtime/ABC Hallmark Hall of Fame miniseries adapted from Anne Rice's novel.
Bianca played Dawson's love interest Nikki Green on Dawson's Creek, and she's appeared
on Saved by the Bell, Sister, Sister, as well as several other shows. Bianca, who is a movie
buff and enjoys painting, was born in Los Angeles, California, on March 20, 1979 and is the
daughter of actor Richard Lawson. Fun fact: her father married Beyonce's mother April of
2015, making them stepsisters.
