Jill Marie Jones possesses versatility that sets her apart in each and every performance. Jones may be best known for starring as Toni Childs, the somewhat self-involved, materialistic friend in UPN's comedy Girlfriends. This role allowed Jill to transform from her soft-spoken, caring ways to a loud-mouthed and witty new mother trying to navigate her relationships. This balance allowed for a dimensional character that people loved to hate, who always drew a laugh.
Jill's talent has caught the eye of many and earned her a nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series for the 2006 NAACP Image Awards. In addition, Jill and her co-stars from Girlfriends were among the first women to be honored and invited to co-host the 2004 NAACP Image Awards. Her successes were also recognized in the form of a 2004 BET Nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a series for her role as Toni Childs.
