Crystal Bernard was born on 30 September 1961 to her mother, Gaylon Fussell, and her father, Dr. Jerry Wayne Bernard, who was a televangelist who made his way across America, preaching and passing the word of God. She was raised in Garland, Texas, where the future actress started her education.
Crystal graduated from Spring High School with a love for acting which led the actress to Baylor University where she chose international studies and acting and also made her way to Alley Theatre where she honed her acting talents and then took a trip to Hollywood to fulfill her dream and make it in the show business.
After starring in minor roles for a while in multiple movies and TV shows, the actress found fame with 'It’s a Living' where she appeared in 93 episodes and also starred in the sitcom 'Wings' where she played the character of 'Helen Chappell-Hackett' in 172 episodes. While the actress was finding success in her career, she was also trying her hand in a relationship after wanting to be single in her early days.
Crystal Bernard Wanted to be Single
From a young age, Crystal was raised in the Christian faith, and the religious faith instilled in her from a young age resulted in the actress wanting to do nothing to do with relationships. Later on, as she grew up, religion was a second thought as she moved away from her home and was living on her own.
Crystal Bernard always wanted to be single.
Crystal was a brilliant performer back then, and there were many suitors seeking her attention back in the day, but she was focused on her career and was not ready for relationships. There was not much of an interest from the actress when it comes to relationships, but it all changed in the 80s when she met the producer Tony Thomas.
Crystal’s Dating History. Is She Married?
