Bern Nadette Stanis

Bern Nadette Stanis Bern Nadette Stanis was born on 22nd December, 1953 in Brooklyn, New York, USA is an American actress best known for her role as the strong-willed Thelma Evans on the CBS sitcom, Good Times. She is of African American descent.

Biography and Career

But there's much more to her then that. In the 70s, BernNadette Stanis was the personification of Black Beauty. As sophisticated and graceful as she was, she still became TV's first Black sex symbol or "It" girl. Thelma/BernNadette and The Evans Family also proved many stereotypes wrong about the ghetto and the young black girl, like for instance...that all Black girls and Black families in the ghetto had no hopes, dreams, or class.

Thelma showed that a "ghetto girl" had hopes and dreams, intelligence, respect, dignity and grace, and it wasn't just acting, BernNadette was that naturally. She introduced a new definitive image of the young Black girl and woman.

She was a wonderful, graceful dancer which she displayed several times on Good Times. In everything BernNadette did it was marked with delicacy with diminutive beauty, form, or grace.

Her grace and beauty was a welcoming presence on TV in the 1970s and still is today and will be as long as there's a TV. Her dramatic, comedic charm, witty one-liners, daintiness, winsomeness, sexy but innocent image, were versatile qualities that made her a great talent and great favorite who'll never be forgotten.

Stanis played the role of middle child Thelma Evans on Good Times from its run from 1974 to 1979. After Good Times ended, she made appearances on several television shows, including The Cosby Show and What's Happening Now!!. She and former co-star Jimmie Walker lent their voices to a radio spot for AT&T. Stanis was most recently seen in a Nationwide Insurance commercial.
