Biography

This sassy TV player has been identified with roles one might term as "floozy", or, at the very least, "of progressive morality", but who also proved her mettle in a number of dramatic or serio-comic parts. Jackee Harry has, at various times in her career, used that stage name, as well as merely "Jackee" (pronounced ja-KAY), and early in her career her birth name, Jacqueline Harry. Harry will always be recalled as Sandra Clark, the flirtatious nemesis to Marla Gibbs in the NBC series, "227". Although Harry had already appeared on TV for several seasons on the NBC daytime drama "Another World", "227", in the parlance of Hollywood, 'made her a star.' Neither a subsequent effort to develop a spin-off series with Harry in the lead nor an attempt to slide her into "Designing Women" were successful. Instead, in 1992, she joined "The Royal Family" (after the death of Redd Foxx) as Ruth, Della Reese's wayward sister. The show still didn't click, and the next year Harry was offered the role of the free-spirited mother of one of the separated-at-birth twins on "Sister, Sister". At first, she rejected the role, but the show's executive producer, Suzanne de Passe, talked her into taking it. "Sister, Sister" ran on ABC for two seasons before being canceled. It was picked up by The WB Network, where it ran twice per week, and was given an order for episodes through the 1997-98 season.
