IB Cast: Chandra West

Chandra West (Chandra) has been keeping herself busy in both feature films and television.   She has just begun to shoot a multi-episode arc on CW’s “90210”, recently wrapped the Hallmark film “Saving Grace” and will soon be seen in the Lifetime Original film  “Of Murder and Memory” based on the best selling novel “Who Named the Knife” by Linda Spalding.  West portrays a prisoner serving a life term who bonds with a former juror on her case.   The film will air later this year. 

She has also recently co-starred in the HBO series “John From Cincinnati” created by David Milch, portraying a porn star returning to town to reconnect with her young son.   In a more comedic turn, West had a supporting role in the feature film I Now Pronounce you Chuck and Larry opposite Adam Sandler for Universal.

In addition, West starred in the independent film Badland directed by Francesco Lucente.   She plays a small town waitress unaware that she is harboring a fugitive in her home.  Vinessa Shaw and British actor Jamie Draven co-star in the film.

Previously, West has had the distinction of portraying the on-screen wife of two former Batman’s.   In Universal’s dramatic thriller White Noise she communicated from beyond with her bereaved husband Michael Keaton.  In similar fashion, she was taken from her adoring spouse Val Kilmer in Castle Rock’s The Salton Sea. 

No stranger to the small screen, West portrayed the recurring character of Mark-Paul Gosselaar’s troubled girlfriend on the ABC series “NYPD Blue”, and co-starred in the short lived but critically acclaimed NBC series “Mr. Sterling” opposite Josh Brolin.  Other television work includes a starring role in the highly rated CBS mini series “Category 6: Day of Destruction” with Brian Dennehy and Dianne Weist and “The 70’s” produced by Denise DiNovi for NBC.

Additional feature film credits include the 20th Century Fox film The First Twenty Million is Always the Hardest with Rosario Dawson and The Toronto Film Festival’s official selection The Perfect Son.

Originally from Edmonton, Canada, West currently resides in Los Angeles.
