Actress Tawny Cypress Finding My Father
It had been eight years since Cypress, 31, had seen her father, a Vietnam War vet and "roamer," she says, who divorced her mother before she was born. In that time she had married, had a son, divorced and appeared on such shows as NYPD Blue, Third Watch and Heroes. Now she plays police officer Ginger LeBeau on K-Ville, which just happens to be set in post-Katrina New Orleans.
Her own hurricane story has a happy ending: A week and a half after posting her message, Cypress got a call from Gene, who had heard she was looking for him from a relative. She invited him to visit her in Brooklyn; a few weeks later, he did. "It was overwhelming," she says of the reunion. Now she is working in the Big Easy on her new show and building a new relationship with her dad, whom she talks to often. "We're taking it slow," she says. "But it's wonderful. Out of Katrina, I got my dad back."
