Gina Torres Husband, Daughter, Ethnicity, Family
Being a celebrity is often a boon but other times a curse. A celebrities’ profession obliges them to grab the attention of the people around them because of which it is difficult for them to maintain privacy in their personal life. Their private life either blends with their profession or overshadows their career.
But when a celebrity is clear about their priorities and purpose, they can surely enjoy both their personal and professional life separately. 50-year-old American actress Gina Torres, who portrayed the character of Jessica Pearson on USA's Suits is one of those celebrities to define herself by her priorities.
Gina, who is known for her take-no-prisoners attitude in Suits, always kept her family before her career. But, as everything loses its charm with time, Gina's romance with husband also faded away slowly.
Let's shed some more lights on the personal aspect of Gina Torres!

Likewise, in an interview with The New York Times, on 15th September 2016, Gina revealed the reason behind leaving “Suits.” She said that her contract was up and her personal life needed to be tended. She explained-
“I think the public doesn’t understand the rigors of shooting a show for an actor, much less when you’re on location and away from home. At one point I approached Aaron [Korsh, the showrunner,] and said: “It’s not that I don’t love the show and love Jessica, who is my alter ego. But my life is my life, and I need to take care of it.” And everyone was completely supportive.”
Cuban ethnicity actress Gina Torres was working in The Catch in 2016. The actress, with height 5 feet 10 inches (1.7m) and body measurements 34-25-35 inches, has appeared in many films and television series.
