Actor Georg Stanford Brown of 'The Rookies' Fame Has Two Beautiful Granddaughters

Fans of 70s TV will remember Georg Stanford Brown, either as Terry Webster in “The Rookies” or as Tom Harvey in “Roots.” Now 76, Georg is a grandpa, and his daughter shared photos of his granddaughters.

Kathryne Dora Brown is a doting mama to two beautiful girls and doesn’t hesitate to show them off on social media.

Earlier this month, the actress shared photos of her daughters making goofy faces. Both curly-haired, the girls were dressed in casual outfits and sneakers and appeared to be taking a walk.

“These two are my everything,” Kathryne gushed in the caption.

In March, the “Wedding Dress” actress also documented what seemed to be a day out with her two girls, posting photos of them trying on makeup and new sneakers.

Kathryne’s older daughter turned 9 in May, and it’s interesting to see how much time has gone by. It seemed like only yesterday when the actress – born in 1971 – was trailing behind her mom and dad on various sets.

A LONG LINE OF ACTORS

Kathryne’s mother, Tyne Daly, is also an actress and was married to Georg from 1966 to 1990. Kathryne has an older sister, Alisabeth, and a younger one named Alyxandra.

Like her daughter, Tyne grew up in a family of actors and is known for her roles in projects like “the Enforcer,” “Telefon,” and “Cagney & Lacey,” the 80s CBS drama series that won her four Emmys.

GEORG'S JOURNEY TO HOLLYWOOD

Georg, on the other hand, found acting by chance, enrolling for drama classes on a whim after dropping out of high school, PEOPLE detailed. The Cuban native had moved to Harlem with his Jamaican parents and had no idea he was going to find fame in an America where racial segregation was explicit.

Georg would go on to ace such roles as Henri Philipot in the 1967 political drama “The Comedians,” Officer Terry Webster in the ABC series “The Rookies,” and Tom Harvey in Alex Haley’s “Roots.”

HOW THEY DISCOURAGED THEIR DAUGHTER

Georg earned an Emmy nomination for his performance in “Roots” and two more for directing the cop series “Hill Street Blues.” In 1986, he won his only Emmy award for directing the final episode of “Cagney & Lacey.”

Despite their achievements, Georg and Tyne never wanted any of their children to go into acting and tried to dissuade Kathryne from the idea.

“My parents didn't encourage it. You still don't encourage it,” Kathryne said to Georg while sitting for an Actor’s Dialogue some years back.

THE REASON

She added:

“It was hard for me to say I wanted to be an actor; I thought I would be judged because of my family. When I decided one day that I was going to go to New York and get into an acting school, I remember you were like, ‘No. Stay in college.’”

Georg explained that it was because he knew how challenging acting could be and how the industry was not very friendly to actors of color. The Cuban-American actor, however, admitted that Kathryne took “some right steps” in pursuing her passion for acting.
