May 9, 1979
Manhattan, New York
Rosario Dawson is one of those promising young stars who was literally "discovered", while sitting on the stoop of her Manhattan home, by director Larry Clark, who at the time, was developing the documentary Kids about the sexual exploits of inner city youth. He saw something in the young beauty, and it was the same something that a few years later Spike Lee would also take note of; ultimately casting her in his movie He Got Game.
Supporting roles continued to follow for Rosario in such films as Light It Up, Down To You, and Pluto Nash, opposite Eddie Murphy. But she finally snagged a lead role as a purring-crime-busting Pussycat in Josie And The Pussycats.
Because her natural and sincere qualities come through so clearly on the big screen, it's easy to imagine that Rosario Dawson will be around for the long haul.
