Since the new year, AVENUEinsider has spotted Tika Sumpter up and downtown, at parties and fashion shows, on screen and off.

Sumpter’s latest role may be on a New York fave, Gossip Girl, but she’s also been on one our personal fave New York-based shows, Law & Order SVU. And we can’t forget to mention her role as a designer on One Life to Live for the past four years.

After doing a little digging–ahem–stalking, we found out that Sumpter is a born and bred New Yorker; she grew up in Queens, studied at Marymount Manhattan College and hostessed at the nightspot Life.

We love her for many reasons, but we can’t help but especially fancy our fellow New Yorkers! We’re anxious to see where we’ll see her next-whether on the small screen, big screen or just about town.
