Do you know Who is Maia Campbell?

Maia Chinassa Campbell is a 42-year-old American television and film actress who was born on November 26, 1976, in Takoma Park, Maryland, USA, under the fire sign of Sagittarius. She is most known for playing Nicole in “South Central,” a brief but significant sitcom about a single mother struggling to raise her children in South Central Los Angeles. Maia emerged as one of the most prominent African-American actresses in the 1990s, alongside Tina Lifford and Tasha Scott. Fans may also recognize her as Tiffany Warren from “In the House,” where she co-starred with Kim Wayans and LL Cool J for five seasons. In “Poetic Justice,” she made her acting debut as Shante, the cousin of the late Tupac Shakur. Campbell, however, slipped into oblivion in the mid-2000s, owing primarily to her continued drug addiction, which exacerbated her bipolar disorder.

Early Life

Maia was born in rural Michigan to American parents, but the family quickly relocated to Los Angeles’ Ladera Heights neighborhood. She had a good fortune, unlike most children, to be nurtured by two brilliant thinkers. Tiko Campbell, her father, was a well-known architect who designed numerous buildings in Washington, D.C. He was also a science fiction novelist in his spare time, having written: “The Light in the Stones:…from the tales of Fibinacci…” Her mother, Elizabeth “Bebe” Moore Campbell was one of the most prominent African-American authors of the 20th century. She is the author of many New York Times best-selling books, including “What You Owe Me,” “Brothers and Sisters,” and “Singing in the Comeback Choir.”

Young Maia developed an early interest in the arts thanks to her parents’ influence. She enjoyed watching movies with her mother, but she wasn’t ready to pursue acting until she was in her mid-teens. She graduated from an unnamed Los Angeles high school in 1994, then enrolled at Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia, but dropped out after one semester to pursue her acting career.


Campbell has had an unusual career. Her first acting role was in the hugely successful romantic drama “Poetic Justice” – on set, she befriended fellow actor Tupac Shakur, and she was distraught when the famous rapper was killed in Las Vegas. ‘He was such a good spirit, and we talked a lot,’ Maia remembers. ‘I couldn’t believe such a decent man could be murdered in cold blood.’ Following that, she was cast as Allison in “Thea,” followed by her breakout role in “South Central.”

The short-lived show about disturbed African-American kids in Los Angeles struck a chord across the country, elevating Maia to the status of a true star. She rose to fame in 1995 as Tiffany Warren in “In the House,” a sitcom in which a divorced mother with two children moves into the home of a former football hero; fans adored her chemistry with LL Cool J. Maia Campbell appeared in 72 episodes in total and it remains a fan favorite to this day. She also appeared in “Sister, Sister,” “Beverly Hills, 90210,” and “Trippin'” at this time, which helped her get national prominence. Things began to fall apart after she departed “In the House.”

Relationship Status

From 1998 to 2002, Maia Campbell was married to Elias Guiterrez. Everything was great until Maia refused to take her medication, resulting in erratic behavior, at which point Elias and their daughter, Elizabeth Elisha Guiterrez, moved out.

There has been no information about Maia’s love endeavors or anything else linked to the topic since then.
