Jackée Harry

Jackée Harry Headshot

Actress • Comedian

Birth Name: Jacqueline Yvonne Harry

Birth Date: August 14, 1956

Age: 67 years old

Birth Place: Winston-Salem, North Carolina

Born in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Jackée Harry moved to New York City at the age of nine. After graduating from New York's High School of Music and Art, Harry earned a degree in Education from the Long Island University and taught History at Brooklyn Technical High School, before deciding to give acting a try. She performed in a number of plays and made her way to Broadway before her first on screen appearance with Morgan Freeman on "Another World" (NBC, 1964-1999) in 1983. In 1985, Harry debuted as a series regular on "227" (NBC, 1985-1990). The role of Sandra Clark, nemesis to the series leading lady, earned Harry the honor of becoming the first African-American woman to win the Emmy for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, and made Jackée a household name. In 1994, Harry premiered in a series regular role on the popular show "Sister, Sister" (ABC, 1994; The WB, 1995-1999). That show ended its run after six seasons, and Harry kept busy with supporting guest roles until she landed a recurring role on "Everybody Hates Chris" (UPN, 2005-06; The CW, 2006-09) a semi-autobiographical show from Chris Rock. In 2012, she played sister-in-law to the President, a series regular role on the sitcom "The First Family" (Syndication, 2012-15). After that show ended, Harry continued to appear in supporting roles.
