  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

The frequently glamorous African-American actress Tawny Cypress built her career from the very late '90s onward. Her first major role was the minor character Melissa in the [[Performer~P26545~Richard Gere~richardgere]]/[[Performer~P62446~Winona Ryder~winonaryder]] sudser [[Feature~V207019~Autumn in New York~autumninnewyork]] (2000). She went on to appear in a variety television programs in both guest parts ([[Feature~V216959~NYPD Blue~nypdblue[tvseries]]], [[Feature~V255664~Law & Order: Criminal Intent~laworder:criminalintent[tvseries]]]) and recurring roles ([[Feature~V181330~Third Watch~thirdwatch[tvseries]]], [[Feature~V174763~All My Children~allmychildren[tvseries]]]), but it wasn't until 2006 that she truly gained mainstream attention. That fall, she took on the role of Simone Deveaux on the prime-time fantasy drama [[Feature~V358376~Heroes~heroes[tvseries]]], a series that soon became a massive hit. She remained with the show for one season, and then could be seen on the New Orleans-set police drama [[Feature~V407063~K-Ville~kville[tvseries]]] in the fall of 2007, playing Ginger "Love Tap" LeBeau, the only main character who was a female officer. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
