Madge Sinclair


Madge Sinclair was born on April 28, 1938 in Kingston, Jamaica. She is a prolific black character actress of stage, screen, and especially television, and was long a fixture in drama series (e.g., "Trapper John, M.D." CBS, 1979-86), miniseries ("Roots" ABC, 1977) and TV-movies ("I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" CBS, 1979). Her forthright manner enhanced many tough, but essentially warm-hearted character roles, some. Like herself, of West Indies descent. 5 Among Sinclair's feature film credits were"I Will...I Will...for Now", "Cornbread, Earl and Me" (both 1975), "Leadbelly" (1976),"Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" (1986) and "Coming to America" (1988). Her final film role was the voice of the Lion Queen Sarabi in Disney's "The Lion King" (1994).
She died on December 20, 1995 in Los Angeles, California. Maybe that's the reason why Sarabi didn't appear in The Lion King 2, again.
