Tonye Patano

Tonye is an American actress, born in 1961. Career success has not been too easy for Tonye Patano. Neither her health has been too great of a help in this regard – in 1996 she was diagnosed with diabetes and she suffered a stroke at the age of 44. Since then she’s been constantly battling her diabetes symptoms and the disease itself, which causes her quite some discomfort and promotes her weight, which she is also fighting against. She claims that she is going to stand firm and keep her diet no matter what.

This strong American actress is known for her work ethics as a hard worker and a professional at what she does. Monk, Sex and the City, Third Watch, Weeds and Law & Order are among her proudest accomplishments, as everybody in the US knows these shows. She has not appeared in many big-screen films, though. What is it caused by? I have no answer to it as her performance claims a greater career than the one she has currently.

In the last couple of years, she was, however, cast in supporting roles of a few successful films such as The Savage alongside Laura Linney and Phillip Seymour Hoffman, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 alongside Denzel Washington and John Travolta, and The Company Men alongside a great cast of actors, including Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Costner and Ben Affleck.

She is currently on One Life to Live and Weeds.
