Harold Perrineau is a brilliant actor and even has a music career, but he is also a doting dad to three beautiful biracial daughters. 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 Michael Dawson from ABC's "Lost" or Link in "The Matrix Reloaded." But away from acting and career generally, the 57-year-old is also a family man who is happily outnumbered in his home.

HAROLD AND BRITTANY PERRINEAU'S CHILDREN
Their first child, Aurora Robinson (26), made her entrance eight years before her parents' marriage on September 23, 1994. Their second, Wynter Aria (13), was born on May 7, 2008, and they welcomed their last child, Holiday Grace (8), on March 21, 2013.
Although Harold and Brittany, 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 made her costume.
"Happy Belated Halloween from the Fam!! Shoutout to Wynter who sewed her own ice princess costume," the New York native wrote. However, not included in the picture was Aurora, who was probably away due to some work engagement.
CRITICS COME FOR AURORA
Like her parents, Aurora is an actress. She starred in the movie adaptation of the hit 1980's cartoon "Jem and the Holograms." 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. The contention was that Aurora, 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."
In the letter, he added: "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 [...]."
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 wrote in a Twitter post:
"I finally had my #metoo moment. If you are willing to stand up, #metoo."
He described his daughter as a warrior. To further support her, he threw his weight behind the #MeToo movement. in a Twitter post, encouraging people to put a stop to abusers by joining the movement.
AURORA'S SEXUAL ASSAULT CLAIM
In 2017, the actress reported to the police that Murray Miller abused her after they had been out drinking. She and her friends ended up at his house.
She later woke up to him naked and on top of her. She took a polygraph test at the time when she reported the story. Aurora reported the case when she did because she felt like she needed to breathe. Aurora wrote:
"It was never a thing like, 'I'm going to tell my story. I just wanted justice."
The Los Angeles County District Attorney's office said the three-year statute of limitations had expired on the statutory rape charge. Also, there were "inconsistencies and the delay in reporting," which prevented the office from charging Murray with rape.
The event occurred in 2012 when she was 17 years old, and Miller's representatives denied the allegations. Miller's representatives initially accused Aurora of demanding monetary damages.
However, these accusations were later dropped as they admitted that Aurora or her representatives initially sought no monetary damages, and it was all a misunderstanding.
