The new BET TV series The Quad is about Dr. Eva Fletcher (Anika Noni Rose), the new president of Georgia A&M (GAMU), a fictitious prestigious HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities). Not everyone is thrilled to have her on campus. But the dean of GAMU’s history department, Ella Grace Caldwell, has Eva’s back.
Dean Caldwell is portrayed by Jasmine Guy. As an actress the former professional dancer (Alvin Ailey Dance Company) is known for her roles on The Vampire Diaries (Sheila “Grams” Bennett), Disney’s K.C. Undercover (Erica Martin), Showtime’s Dead Like Me (Roxy Harvey), and the Cosby spin-off, A Different World set on another fictitious HBCU (Whitley Gilbert), among others. The Quad airs Wednesdays at 10pm on BET.
