Tina Lifford

Actor, author, speaker

Hollywood veteran Tina Lifford plays the vivacious Aunt Vi on the critically acclaimed television drama, Queen Sugar. She has played over 100 characters in her long-standing career, including the CIA Director on Scandal and the mother-in-law on Parenthood. Equally accomplished behind the camera, Tina is the respected playwright of THE CIRCLE - a play about how seven diverse women navigate the choppy waters of life together - author of The Little Book of BIG LIES, released by HarperCollins, November 2019, and CEO of The Inner Fitness Project, a wellbeing initiative that teaches the practice of Self-awareness as a path to inner growth and healing. TIFP is committed to making “Inner Fitness” as familiar and actionable as physical fitness. The drive behind Tina's commitment to inner fitness dates to a debilitating encounter with stage fright in the fifth grade that she had to overcome and identifying the insights and practices that turned her overwhelm into purpose. As an author and speaker, Tina fosters the idea that we can all live life well and thrive.
