Maahhhhhweeeeeeee! Yeah, we didn’t know Jackée was Trini, either–we always figured the North Carolina-born, Harlem-raised actress for a full-on Southern belle. As man-crazy Sandra Clark, Jackée became the unexpected star on ’80s series 227 (originally written as a vehicle for Marla Gibbs) thanks to her scene-stealing mixture of sexiness and silliness. She’s joined the cast and made cameos on numerous sitcoms since, with her most notable post-227 role coming as Lisa Landry, as the adoptive mother to Tia Landry (Tia Mowry) on Sister Sister.
