Isaiah Washington News



Isaiah was born on August 3, 1963.

He was born and raised in Houston, Texas, where he became one of the first graduates from Willowridge High School in 1981. At one point he dreamed of a professional football career, but later served in the United States Air Force and dreamed of becoming "the second "General Washington."

He settled on acting, however, and attended Howard University as a Theater Arts major. After college, he became an original member of the City Kids Repertory, a theater company that performed in schools in effort to bring relevant productions to inner-city youths.

Washington has guest starred on Law & Order, NYPD Blue, Ally McBeal and other TV series. His film credits include Girl 6 (1996), Get on the Bus (1996), Out of Sight (1998), True Crime (1999), Romeo Must Die (2000), Exit Wounds (2001) and Ghost Ship (2002).

His full name is Isaiah Washington IV. A DNA test to determine his heritage showed that his father's side is from Angola and his mother's side is from Sierra Leone. He married Jenisa Marie Washington on Valentine's Day, 1999. They have two children.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Nobody's memory is perfect or complete. We jumble things up. We lose track of time. We are in one place... then another and it all feels like one long, inescapable moment. So, what does it mean? What do we take away? Which pieces will haunt us? Hurt us? End us? Inspire us? It's just like my mother used to say, the carousel never stops turning. You can't get off.

Meredith

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.
