Early Life and Family
Cree was born to the Zodiac sign of Cancer on the 7th of July, 1969. She was born in Los Angeles, California, USA of African-American, English, and Cree First Nation descent. She holds both American as well as Canadian citizenship. As of 2021, she’s 52 years old.
Her parents were Lili Red Eagle an American dancing artist born in San Francisco, and Don Francks was professionally known by the name Iron Buffalo. Her father was a well-known voice actor, actor, and musician, who earned fame for his voice acting in animated and children’s shows like “Inspector Gadget”, “Police Academy” as well as “La Femme Nikita”. He also appeared in a variety of popular TV films and shows such as “Mission Impossible”, “Johnny Mnemonic” and “My Bloody Valentine”.
According to her father, he didn’t intend to have his family raised in Hollywood which led him to move into the Red Pheasant Reserve in Saskatchewan in Canada. There, Cree was raised alongside her sister Rainbow Sun Francks. The life they lived in the reserve wasn’t lavish, since the house they lived in was a home constructed out of dirt.
They often traveled across British Columbia, but Cree started attending a school for children in Toronto at age nine. However, it appears that she was not interested in the subject.
Like many others, from 1996, she’s also been lending her voice to characters from video games and has had more than 40 voice-overs. Her most well-known credits include “Final Fantasy X-2”, “Star Wars: The Old Republic: Knights of the Eternal Throne” as well as “Lego DC Super-Villains”.
Concerning her past relationships, there is a rumor that she was a co-star in “A Different World”, by Kadeem Hardison during the course of the show.
In 1998, she had a baby boy named Miles Francis Summer- Pullens and her father’s identity is in the dark.
The actress is engaged to director and producer Angelo Pullens; while the wedding date is not known to the general public to know, they have had two children as a couple Brave Littlewing Pullens born in March of 2011 in March 2011, and Hero Peregrine Pullens born on 26 January 2014.
In the course of their marriage, Angelo officially adopted her first child Miles Francis.
In 2020 there were rumors about a possible separation from Angelo. Cree posted a picture on Instagram with the caption:” A single mother isn’t for the weak. It’s for the tender. God bless you for my Babies for this deep and sacred sacrifice. It is a privilege to be humbled and honored by this obligation and yet we should never let ourselves stop Mothering ourselves.”
In light of her use of single mother as a way in her description of herself has tipped off many people to the possibility that their relationship with Angelo could have shifted to the other side. But neither Cree nor Angelo has shared any details or made any statement.
At the time of her mid-2021 birthday, Cree’s net worth was estimated to be around $4 million. This is largely due to her voice-acting career.
