Good was born in Panorama City, California, the daughter of Tyra Doyle (who worked as Good’s manager into her teens), and Leon Good, an LAPD police officer. According to Good, her maternal grandmother is “Jewish and African, so I guess that would be considered Creole. My mother’s father was Cherokee and something else. My dad’s mother’s Puerto Rican and African American, and his father was from Barbados.” Good was raised in Canyon Country (now known as Santa Clarita), California with her three siblings. She began her acting career around the age of four or five. In the early stages of her career, Good started out doing work as an extra on television shows such as Doogie Howser, M.D. and Amen. When she was thirteen, Good was cast in her first film in the 1995 hit Friday. Good first began to gain recognition for her performance as troubled teen Cisely Baptiste in Kasi Lemmons’ critically acclaimed 1997 film Eve’s Bayou, which earned Good two award nominations, including her first NAACP Image Award nomination.
