Lisa Nicole Carson
When it comes to Lisa Nicole Carson it is just as important WHAT she plays, as HOW she plays it! In the "Homeywoods" of America, a woman that is: big bottomed, small waisted, chested is the ideal woman!This is regardless of whether she is a buggy-whipped armed ballerina, or a plus-size shot putter. This standard of beauty was NEVER expressed in mass media until Jackee Harry played the sophisticated Sandra Clark in the sitcom "227". A perfect throwback to this is Lisa Nicole Carson.

Lisa gave a heartfelt performance in Jason's lyric as Marti. She made you feel for Marti in her hopes to find a romantic like Lyric did. However she will never play a romantic lead because those roles are reserved almost exclusively for women who are little more than hair and bones! Women that had physiques like Lisa Carson were called "healthy" until the 1960s; then skeletal British model Twiggy changed everything! All Lisa has to do is act, so that she can open the door for REAL WOMEN to advance in the discipline of acting!
