  2. the strange thing is when I first saw some of these actors YEARS AGO – Lamman Rucker, Megan Good, Cuba, Jada pinkett I thought it strange that I was so in love with seeing these people I didn't even know why just loved to see them and now to see their parents or relatives are from the same island as me is just awesome.

  3. Lamman Rucker's maternal grandfather is from Barbados. His father is a musician, artist and scholar from Pittsburgh.

    Rihanna was born AND grew up in Barbados. Thanks.
