Gameela Wright is a native New Yorker who got into the Dance Theater of Harlem when she was younger. After suffering an injury, she went to school and earned a BS in Psychology and Marketing. For some time she worked with an ad agency but was laid off, which led her to go back to school.

It was there that she got into Theater, without formal training, acting in several productions before going to school for acting. Since then, she has extended her acting to film and commercials as well as theater.

After appearing in 13 episodes, ranging from Season One to Season Six as an unnamed or one-off reporter, she was finally given a name upon her first appearance of Season Seven. Now she has been credited 3 times as Reporter Helen, or just Helen.
