The Beyhive got a little bit bigger this past weekend when Beyoncé’s Mom, Tina Knowles and actor Richard Lawson jumped the broom on a humongous yacht in Newport Beach, California. Beyoncé and Solange not only got a new stepfather in the process, but a famous stepsister as well.
Meet Richard Lawson’s daughter from his first marriage — Bianca Lawson. A 36-year-old actress, whose face we’re sure you’ve seen on many televised occasions. That’s because Bianca’s ageless looks, have helped her land a bevy of acting roles though the years.
You may instantly remember her as Kendra from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, or perhaps her role as Nikki in Save The Last Dance may ring a bell? Speaking of bells, Bianca got her first big break in that other Bayside High show — Saved By The Bell: The New Class. Lawson’s acting resume reads like a teenage time capsule — Dawson’s Creek, Sister Sister, Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries, and more recently Teen Wolf.
Outside of sharing parents, Beyoncé and Bianca both share the distinction of appearing on the 90’s show Smart Guy.
Bianca isn’t a stranger to having music royalty as family. Her mother Denise Gordy is Barry Gordy’s niece, which would make the Motown founder her great-uncle.
