Born in Mesquite, TX in the winter of 1980, Tiffany Rochelle Limos started using her father's video camera at age seven. From dance classes to directing, writing, and producing plays in the fourth grade to singing in the church choir, Limos was a natural. At the tender age of twelve, Limos was discovered by a modeling agent at the mall and started doing the local commercials and advertisements making her a local celebrity in Mesquite. Her hunger grew and she sought out the Big Apple (New York) while visiting her godmother the summer of 1995. she signed with the Ford modeling agency in New York. She listened to her intuition and took the risk of her life. Tiffany fearlessly, living in Manhattan alone, made her debut in 1995 doing ads for Seventeen, Teen, Sassy, and commercials. Limos later went behind the scenes and worked for a company called A'Bantu (when her friend David Sorrenti passed away). At first she was helping out but then later realized that she liked working in a photo production office. She later than worked for Art Department, Jed Root, and Art & Commerce. Lived in London, briefly, at age 16. In 1999, Limos worked for Visionaire and V Magazine. She worked in the Creative Department and was one of the scribes who brought forth new ideas. That same year Limos started Cheapdate magazine. In 2001, without prior acting classes, Limos filmed her first movie Ken Park and a week after filming that movie, embarked on the movie Teenage Caveman. Teenage Caveman didn't go as planned but they made due. After filming those two movies back-to-back Limos allowed herself a break from acting and spent time in Mesquite, Texas before writing the A.G.F.T. and P.M. screenplays. She later studied the art of acting at Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler, Margie Haber and with Susan Batson at Black Nexxus.
Since Ken Park's debut in Europe/Asia in 2002 Limos had experienced personal and political highs and lows that fueled Limos' desire to make it big. She became praised for showing nerve-wrecking emotion and unflinching brazen courage in her first film with tremendous fervor, that most cultivated actresses show much later in their careers. (i.e. Halle Berry in Monster's Ball) Turning the focus to Limos' scene in Ken Park where she is beaten by her father and has a nervous breakdown, without acting classes at the time, show the potential for a true star in the making. Few women in the history of cinema can say that they have had a debut so full of range and do it without uninhibited hesitation.

This is in production now and there are Academy Award Winning actors involved with Limos producing/writing the film and Clark directing.
