Mekia Cox

Biography

Mekia Cox has been dazzling audiences since the age of 2 when she performed her first solo song and dance. It was then that she knew her purpose in life was to entertain.

With early career credits including "One Tree Hill," "CSI:NY," "Half & Half" and "Bones," she was cast in award-winning television series such as "Modern Family," "Grey's Anatomy," "Gotham," "Key & Peele," "Almost Human," and a multitude of other TV shows including The CW's hit series "90210," where she played the vivacious DJ, Sasha. On the big screen, Cox has appeared alongside Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling in the romantic comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love," as well as dancing alongside Michael Jackson in the 2009 tour documentary "This Is It."

She's also been afforded the opportunity to work with other industry icons including J.J. Abrams and producer Josh Reims when she was granted her first series regular role on NBC's "Undercovers," as well as with three-time Academy Award® nominee Frank Darabont in TNT's "Mob City." Most recently, she played Princess Tiana in ABC's "Once Upon a Time" and is best known for her role as Robin Charles on NBC's "Chicago Med." She currently plays tough undercover cop-turned-training-officer Nyla Harper on ABC's "The Rookie."

Cox's talents also exceed what has been captured on screen. With a Bachelor of Arts degree in musical theatre and two national tours under her belt ("Fame" and "Smoke Joe's CafeĀ“"), her goal is to share her passion for storytelling with the world.
