Her film, “Gladys Brown,” won the award for Best Comedy at the Tonkawa Film Festival in 2020. To celebrated the big feat, the actress shared a video of herself extending heartfelt gratitude to everyone who contributed to the movie’s success.


Horsford grew up in Antigua, her father’s hometown. Little is known after the star’s personal life as she prefers to keep it private. On-screen, the movie star has played the bride on occasions, even hosting a grand wedding as Thelma Frye on “Amen.”
