Before she appeared in feature films such as the Steve Carell-led rom-com "Crazy, Stupid, Love." and starred in the espionage series "Undercovers," actress Mekia Cox first trained as a dancer during her childhood. Four years after making her television debut on a 2005 episode of the CBS crime drama "CSI: NY," Cox had a recurring role on the revamped teen soap "90210." Despite making her feature acting debut in the 2010 rock musical "I Kissed a Vampire" and her commitment to "Undercovers," she still found time to dance professionally, notably performing in the 2009 documentary "Michael Jackson's This Is It" and later starring in the dance-driven movie "Battlefield America."
