Meet Actor Harold Perrineau's Wife of 17 Years and Their 3 Beautiful Daughters
Harold Perrineau is a brilliant actor and even has a music career, but he is also a doting dad to three beautiful biracial daughters, and as history shows, he’s always ready to defend his own.
Most people remember Harold from the HBO crime series “Oz” where he played Augustus Hill or as Michael Dawson from ABC’s “Lost.” But away from acting and career generally, the 56-year-old is also a family man who is happily outnumbered in his home.
Their first child, Aurora Robinson, made her entrance eight years before her parents’ marriage in 1994. Their second, Wynter Aria, was born on May 7, 2008, and they welcomed their last child, Holiday Grace, on March 21, 2013.
Although Harold and Brittany, who is also an actress, remain fairly private about their personal life, the family is a close-knit one. For Halloween 2018, the Perrineau clan posed for a group shot, with Harold telling fans that Wynter, 11, made her costume.
“Happy Belated Halloween from the Fam!! Shoutout to Wynter who sewed her own ice princess costume,” the New York native wrote.
Not included in the picture, however, was Aurora, who was probably away due to some work engagement. Like her parents, Aurora is an actress. She starred in the movie adaptation of the hit 1980's cartoon “Jem and the Holograms.”
CRITICS COME FOR AURORA
Unfortunately, working on the 2015 film brought Aurora intense criticism. She was cast as Shana, a dark-skinned character with kinky hair, and fans did not take the news well at all. The contention was that Aurora, who is light-skinned and biracial with straight hair, was not a good fit for Shana.
Harold eventually fired back at his daughter’s critics in an open letter for The Wrap. “The reason I’m so angry right now (and I’m sure that many people will be able to understand this) is that I feel like my daughter — MY CHILD — is being attacked,” he wrote, adding:
“Aurora is the product of a Caucasian mother and a black father and is therefore not qualified or not “black” enough to play a black character from an animated series, according to some people. Her blackness or lack thereof is so offensive to some that they’ve written articles about it. They’ve gone onto social media and spewed their vitriol directly at her. Some went so far as to suggest that she 'kill herself' for taking the role. All, without ever seeing her work in the role. All this anger based solely on the color of her skin.”
HIS #METOO MOMENT
The “Stay Strong” singer also spoke up for his baby girl in 2017 after she accused "Girls" writer Murray Miller of sexually assaulting her when she was 17 years old.
He described his daughter as a warrior. To support her he threw his weight behind the #MeToo movement.
He wrote in a Twitter post:
“I finally had my #metoo moment. If you are willing to stand up, #metoo. If you are willing to fight, #metoo. If you are willing to say no more to this way of life where people think they can abuse you and get away with it, then I say, [expletive] yes, #metoo.”
Aurora and her sisters must be so proud of their Papa!
