Cynthia Blaise was born sometime in 1958 in the United States. Much of her background is unknown but it is believed she was raised in Detroit until adulthood when she headed over to the University of Oregon where she obtained her bachelor’s degree in Theatre.

The degree was the culmination of an interest in performing arts that Cynthia Blaise had harboured since she was a child. She took further interest in becoming qualified for her profession of interest by attending the University of California, where she obtained a second degree, a Masters in Acting.

Having completed her education, she went back to Detroit where she was a part of the acting community in Detroit, working at the Detroit Repertory Theatre.

She made her acting debut on screen in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier as Amanda in 1989. Sadly, she did not star in another project until 2000 when she appeared in Timequest. In the 2010s, Cynthia Blaise appeared in multiple episodes of Key and Peele and a guest appearance in the show, Robot Chicken.

While her acting career hasn’t had much to celebrate, she has found great success as a dialect coach. Her first role as a dialect coach was for the film, The Spitfire Grill, although she was uncredited for her work on the film, she did, however, get credited on her next project, Polish Wedding and other subsequent projects she has worked on ever since.

It was a long drawn out divorce that was eventually completed in November 2017. Despite several attempts for fans and the media to identify the official reason for the divorce, neither party revealed anything, with the official statement being, irreconcilable differences.

However, investigation suggests that the couple went their separate ways over allegations of infidelity on the part of Keegan-Michael Key, who was reportedly having an affair with Elisa Pugliese.
