Born and raised in Los Angeles, Calif., where she still resides, Regina King starred as Marla Gibbs’ daughter on the popular ’80s sitcom, “227.” Unlike many child actors who fade away after a few years in the spotlight, the 42-year-old actress worked steadily through the years opposite Tom Cruise, Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Bullock and Cuba Gooding Jr. King recently starred in the series “Southland” and has a recurring role on “The Big Bang Theory.” Fans may follow her on Twitter (at)reginaking.
Q. What is your favorite vacation destination?
A. That’s tough. I’ve been blessed to travel to a lot of places. But I would say I’ve traveled to locations in Mexico most frequently. I love Cabo San Lucas, because it’s close. I love Cancun because the water is warm in the spring and is so many different beautiful shades of blue. I love Playa Del Carmen because it’s a bit more private. And the food … delicious. In a perfect world, I would live in the Mexican Caribbean, speak Spanglish and survive on guacamole, camarones and tequila.
