Fans reacted to the lovely picture, commenting on how vibrant the 63-year-old looks. Others pointed out that the dinner with the icons must have been amazing with great company.

Harry has not left the scene of active acting. After "Sister, Sister" came to an end in 1999, she went on to feature in other successful shows like "Everybody Hates Chris" and "2 Broke Girls."

Jackée and her former "Sister, Sister" co-star, Tia Mowry-Hardrict, starred in the 2018 film, "Family and Faith," along with their former co-star Tim Reid.

The pair is once again bringing sassy back in an upcoming Netflix special, "A Family Reunion Christmas." The two stars will get the chance to entertain the public together once again on camera.

When asked about the possibilities of a "Sister, Sister" reboot, Mowry-Hardrict told Bustle that the idea looked pretty dead at the moment to her.

Jackée struggled through Dark Times.

Jackée has become an irreplaceable icon in the industry, particularly in the Black community, and she knows it! She's popularly known for the many roles that she has played in her long career, but one that remains unforgettable is her role as Sandra Clarke in the classic 80's sitcom, "227." 

In an interview with ESSENCE, Harry disclosed that the iconic character she played had a significant toll on her mental health. She revealed that:

"I used to hate myself, the fact that I was just doing a part. I didn't know it would last this long. I had down-to-earth dreams, not of being a character..."

She added that she struggled through dark times for an extended period as the show ran for five years, and the burden of the role continued to weigh on her.

She revealed that her fellow actress and friend, Epatha Merkerson had an in-depth talk with her and encouraged her to go on with the show. This conversation gave Harry the courage to keep pushing.

Despite that unhappy period, Jackée continues to be a ray of sunshine and is often a source of laughter, especially on her Twitter. The 63-year-old veteran actress has not relented in her pursuit of happiness and success.
