N'Bushe Wright (pronounced nuh-BOO-shay, born September 20, 1970 in New York City, U.S.) is an American film and television actress, known mainly for her part in Blade. A native of New York City, she is the daughter of jazzman Stanely Wright aka Suleiman-Marim Wright. Her mother is a psychologist with the New York City Board of Education. Within a year of attending Stella Adler's Studio, Wright was starring in Anthony Drazan's Zebrahead (1992). That year, she won the recurring role of Claudia, a black civil rights activist fighting for equal opportunities in education in the acclaimed but short-lived NBC television drama I'll Fly Away. She received positive reviews for her moving portrayal of the drug-addicted older sister of the title protagonist in Boaz Yakin's Fresh (1994).
