Career

Harris began appearing in commercials while still an infant. From there she became a regular on the celebrated children's series "Sesame Street". In 1991, Harris made her episodic TV debut, in an episode of "I'll Fly Away". Her talents made her an appealing choice for the role of Troy, the only daughter amidst a swarm of boys, in Spike Lee's loosely autobiographical film "Crooklyn" (1994).

She was next seen as Jessi in "The Baby-Sitters Club" (1995), Melanie Mayron's adaptation of the popular novels. In 1997 she co-starred in a USA Network movie "Clover". In 1998 she reteamed with Spike Lee for the feature "He Got Game", with Denzel Washington; in this film, she plays Mary, the younger sister of basketball prospect Jesus Shuttleworth (Ray Allen).

In 2005, Harris played the Queen in a performance of William Shakespeare's Cymbeline for Princeton's Theatre Intime.
