Tisha Campbell-Martin: ‘I’ll Always Be Gina From ‘Martin!’’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Damn, Gina! Tisha Campbell-Martin is totally cool with the fact that she’ll forever be Gina from Martin.

The actress – who played Martin Lawrence’s main squeeze in the ’90s sitcom – is constantly recognized by fans for her role as Gina, though she’s done tons of other projects since Martin.

She laughs, “I’ll always be Gina from Martin – and I love that! It was such a fun character, and I’m proud that it’s part of TV history.”

She has kept in close contact with her former Martin co-star Tichina Arnold over the years, who’s her real-life best friend.

Although Campbell-Martin is known as Gina to her American fans, it’s a different story overseas.

She says fans in Europe, Germany, Japan, and South America usually recognize her more as Damon Wayans’ wife from her other sitcom, My Wife and Kids.

She hopes to be recognized from her show on Lifetime, Rita Rocks, which airs its season finale Monday (Feb. 23).
