Texas-born actress/singer Crystal Bernard began performing at a very early age. When she was three years old, she was part of the Bernard Trio, which also included her father Jerry and her sister Robyn. The trio would travel across the nation to perform at gospel revivals and recorded a total of 17 gospel albums together. Bernard studied acting at the Alley Theater in Houston, TX, and then enrolled at Baylor University to further her studies in acting, also taking up international relations. While the main bulk of her work has been on television, she has appeared in several films as well. Bernard is also still actively involved in the music industry as a songwriter and as a performer.
