Tawny Cypress

Simone Deveaux is just the latest TV character for Tawny Cypress.

The actress has appeared on numerous primetime and daytime series before Heroes, such as "Third Watch," "Jonny Zero," "100 Centre Street," "All My Children" and "Guiding Light."

She can thank her mother (Hungarian/German) and her father (African-American/ Native-American) for her unique beauty, while also thanking a few universities for helping to teach her the acting craft.

Cypress enjoyed stints over the years at Boston University; Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey; and Mason Gross at Rutgers University.

Heroes Quotes

Sylar: You okay?
Claire: Peachy.

[voiceover] In the beginning there was discovery. A confusion of elements. The first snowfall of impossible change. Old lives undone, left behind. Strange faces, made familiar. New nightmares, to challenge sleep. New friends, to feel safe with. Only then comes control. The need to impose order unto chaos, through determination through study, through struggle. All in defiance of a thundering truth. They’re here, and the earth shudders underfoot.
