Movie director Darnell Martin

Yes, she's beautiful enough to be in front of a movie camera, but Darnell Martin has made her mark behind movie cameras. 

The daughter of a black father and an Irish mother, Ms. Martin got her start as a director with Suspect, which looked how young blacks are always looked at as criminals She went on to make I Like It Like That, a 1994 romantic comedy-drama about a woman trying to juggle love and family, and 2008's Cadillac Records, about the Chess record company in Chicago.

Ms.Martin has also worked in television, directing episodes of TV shows like "Law & Order" and "Grey's Anatomy."
