What The Cast Of Sister, Sister Is Doing Today

We've seen the story of twins separated at birth play out on screen plenty of times, from The Parent Trap to The Lying Game. But the late '90s TV series Sister, Sister, which follows twins Tia and Tamera after they reunite, is uniquely heartwarming. Identical twin sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry portrayed this duo from their high school years to their college days. Whatever breakups, after-school jobs, or family drama cropped up, they always have each other's backs.

 If you followed their adventures when you were young, brace yourself for a shocking fact: The Sister, Sister series finale aired over 20 years ago. Supposedly, a Sister, Sister reboot is in the works, and although no release date has been announced yet, fans of the show are feeling nostalgic. As it happens, the cast has stayed quite busy since the series wrapped — here's what they've all been up to since the Sister, Sister finale.

Tia Mowry-Hardrict

On Sister, Sister, Mowry-Hardrict played Tia Landry, the more studious and serious twin. She was raised by her adoptive mother, Lisa Landry, in Detroit, prior to the twins' reunion. Despite her sober nature, Tia typically ends up getting roped into Tamera's crazy schemes one way or another.

After Sister, Sister ended, Mowry-Hardrict didn't slow down for a moment. She went on to co-star in several movies with her twin sister, including Twitches, the sequel Twitches Too, and The Hot Chick. The two even appeared in the animated TV series Detention together, in which Mowry-Hardrict and her sister portray twins with a penchant for hacking into school computers. She also landed several other television roles: She played Dr. Melanie Barnett on The Game and Stephanie Phillips on Instant Mom, and just wrapped up a stint as Cocoa McKellen on Family Reunion. Mowry-Hardrict and her sister also starred in a 2011 reality TV series entitled Tia & Tamera.

In 2008, Mowry-Hardrict married fellow actor Cory Hardrict. The couple now has a son, Cree, and a daughter, Cairo. She says that she loves nothing more than spending time with her kids and making them laugh. "I have to learn how to draw that line and be like, 'Tia, maybe this is why, sometimes, your kids run all over you,'" Mowry-Hardrict told People. "Because they think you're their friend!"

Tamera Mowry-Housley

Tamera Campbell is the impulsive, outspoken twin, more interested in Coolio than schoolwork. She was brought up by her adoptive father Ray Campbell, who invites Tia and her mother to move in with them after the girls meet.

Off-screen, Mowry-Housley has definitely been working hard since the Sister, Sister finale. In addition to appearing alongside her sister in Detention, Tia & Tamera, and the Twitches movies, Mowry-Housley also played Dr. Kayla Thornton in Strong Medicine, Hope Daniels in Roommates, and even Marvel superheroine Misty Knight in The Super Hero Squad Show. After Tia & Tamera ended in 2013, Mowry-Housley became a co-host of the talk show The Real, sharing her thoughts on topics like dating, parenthood, and pop culture.

In addition to acting, Mowry-Housley and her sister became authors in 2015, publishing the all-ages Twintuition series. On top of all these committments, Mowry-Housley found the time to marry journalist Adam Housley. The couple now has two children, Aden and Ariah, and run a family YouTube channel together.

Jackée Harry

Jackée Harry starred as Tia's adoptive mom, Lisa Landry. Like Tia, Lisa is very hard-working — she runs her own fashion design business — but her personality more closely mirrors Tamera's carefree attitude. Although she has plenty of respect for Ray, she can never stop herself from teasing him. In the series finale, she marries Victor Sims. 

Harry has had a long career in Hollywood: Years before appearing on Sister, Sister, she was already known for playing Sandra Clark on the beloved sitcom 227. When Sister, Sister ended, Harry continued landing guest spots on various TV shows, including 7th Heaven and That's So Raven. She eventually landed a recurring role as Vanessa, the upbeat and bubbly owner of the local beauty salon, on the popular sitcom Everybody Hates Chris. More recently, she played Pauletta on The First Family and JoAnn Payne on Tyler Perry's The Paynes. Alongside the Mowry twins, she has also appeared on HBO's A Black Lady Sketch Show.

Tim Reid

Tim Reid played Tamera's adoptive father, Ray Campbell, an old-fashioned businessman who does his best to keep the girls on the straight and narrow. He was a male cheerleader, is absolutely unable to function around women, and can be extremely cheap. But at his core, he loves his unusual family and always comes through for them.

Once Sister, Sister was over, Reid went on to play William Barnett on That '70s Show. He also appeared as Judge John Gatling on Treme and Bishop Lionel Jeffries on Green Leaf. But Reid isn't just an actor — he's also a director and producer. Recently, he's backed projects like the film Out of Gas and gotten behind the camera for the documentary series The Life & Times of Elizabeth Keckly. He also published the book Tim & Tom: An American Comedy in Black and White, in which he shares his experiences performing as one half of the interracial comedy duo Tim and Tom in the 1960s.

Marques Houston

Marques Houston played Tia and Tamera's annoying neighbor Roger Evans, who has a tendency to pop up whenever is most inconvenient for the girls. In the early seasons of Sister, Sister, it is rare to have an episode go by without hearing Tia or Tamera yell, "Go home, Roger!" at some point. But as he grows up, he becomes a true friend to the twins, and in the series finale, even attends Lisa's wedding.

In the years directly after Sister, Sister, you could catch Houston playing Kevin Barnes on One on One and its spin-off series Cuts. Although Houston did continue acting after his time on Sister, Sister was over, he has spent most of his time focusing on his music career. He performed with the group Immature/IMx from 1990 to 2001, but eventually decided to go solo in 2003. Houston began a prolific career as a movie producer in 2010, and is CEO of his own film production company, Footage Films. Recently, Houston became engaged to his girlfriend, Miyana.

RonReaco Lee

In later seasons of Sister, Sister, Tia has an on-and-off relationship with Tyreke Scott, who was played by RonReaco Lee. Although they go through a brief breakup, they get back together after Tyreke realizes that he just can't lose her. When she graduates from high school and gets ready to attend the University of Michigan, he's also accepted, and manages to get a job as a security guard on campus. 

Lee has had steady work since that final season on several different TV shows, including Let's Stay Together, Survivor's Remorse, The First Wives Club, and The Shield. He stepped into a different kind of role when he directed the short film A Father's Love in 2018.

In addition to his professional accomplishments, Lee married Sheana Freeman in 2010, and the couple now has two children. Recently, you may have seen him playing Orlando Johnson in the Netflix comedy film Coffee & Kareem. His next appearance will be in the upcoming comedy film 2 Minutes of Fame.

Deon Richmond

While Tia dates Tyreke, Tamera falls in love with Jordan Bennett, played by Deon Richmond. It's no wonder Tamera and Deon stick together when the pair graduates and leaves for the University of Michigan — they're both laid-back, fun-loving people with an impulsive side.

In the years following the Sister, Sister finale, Richmond ended up doing a significant amount of work in the horror genre, with roles in Scream 3 and the independent horror film Hatchet. You might have also spotted him playing Malik in Not Another Teen Movie. Richmond also continued working in television, having recurring roles on TV shows like Teachers, Hangin' with Mr. Cooper, and One Love

Richmond's most significant achievement was not landing a particular role, however. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2001, which returned in 2003, necessitating additional rounds of chemotherapy. He was finally able to beat the disease, and eventually became a father to twin daughters, Lilac and Leone.

Alexis Fields

Tia and Tamera become friends with Diavian Johnson, played by Alexis Fields, in the later seasons of Sister, Sister. She gets along well with both sisters, and when they're getting ready to apply to colleges, she helps them study for their SATs. However, Tia and Diavian hit a rough patch in their friendship when Diavian kisses Tyreke one day after drama class. Although Tia and Tyreke were broken up at the time, it makes Tia realize that she still has feelings for him.

Once her time on Sister, Sister was up, Fields had recurring roles as Alicia on Moesha and Sharla Morrison on Kenan & Kel. More recently, she played Claudine Walker on All That Matters and Denise Patterson on All American. She's currently working on an untitled TV movie about a couple who run a ministry. In 2006, she married Kevin Jackson, and they now have a daughter, Kaycie, and a son, Kaden.

Dorien Wilson

In earlier seasons of Sister, Sister, Lisa dates Terrence Winningham, the manager of the local Food Boy supermarket, played by Dorien Wilson. The couple gets engaged during season two, but later decide that they aren't ready to get married. They try to stay together for a while after, but in the end, things just don't work out.

After his run on Sister, Sister, Wilson nabbed roles on plenty of TV shows. He had a recurring role as Rev. Leslie Taylor on Living Single, and followed that up with a role as Franklin Goode on Goode Behavior. He also spent five years playing Professor Stanley Oglevee on The Parkers, and later appeared on Bella and the Bulldogs and In the Cut.

Wilson will be playing Frank Hart in the new series Church Folks, and will appear in the upcoming films Welcome Matt, Fruits of the Heart, and Way Out of Bounds.

Anna Slotky

You might remember Anna Slotky as Tia and Tamera's friend Denise Mondello, who works with the twins at Rocket Burger and occasionally gets into trouble with their group of friends. At one point, Denise plays a prank on the twins, telling them that she is going to start using her middle name, Tonya, so that they would all match.

After leaving Sister, Sister, Slotky continued acting for several years. She guest-starred as Cheryl on the sitcom 3rd Rock From the Sun, and also had bit parts as Amanda Dank on Step by Step and as Allison on Get Real. However, Slotky left Hollywood behind nearly 20 years ago to pursue an entirely different path in life. She studied law at Occidental College, and has been a practicing attorney in California since 2009. In 2011, she married James Reitano, and gave birth to their son a year later. Considering her last acting role was in 2000, it seems she has no intention of getting back in front of the camera.

Steve Monroe

The twins' friend Steve, played by Steve Monroe, may not be very smart, but he's always around to provide some comic relief. Since those days, Monroe has taken his career in all kinds of exciting directions — including a few you'd never expect.

In the years following his time on Sister, Sister, Monroe played Frank Tobin in Miss Congeniality and Barry Belson in Jersey Boys. In addition to his film roles, he's had guest spots on popular shows including New Girl, Modern Family, Criminal Minds, and Bones. From 2014 through 2019, he played Scott Proctor on the musical comedy series Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

But Monroe isn't just an actor — he's also a therapist. In his practice, he generally works with people in the entertainment industry. Becoming a successful actor and a practicing therapist both require a serious time commitment, so it's fairly impressive that Monroe manages to do both.

Arvie Lowe Jr.

Ernie, played by Arvie Lowe Jr., is another one of Tia and Tamera's friends. He is also a member of the drama club.

After his role on Sister, Sister ended, Lowe landed a guest spot on the series Moesha. His next role was on the family comedy Smart Guy, about a 10-year-old genius who drives his teenage siblings crazy when he begins attending high school with them. Coincidentally, the star of this series was none other than Tahj Mowry, the Mowry twins' brother. You might also remember seeing Lowe pop up in another popular teen sitcom: He played Mr. Dig on Lizzie McGuire

Recently, Lowe has been working on projects of an exciting new stripe: Since 2015, he has worked with the YouTube channel Lowcarbcomedy, creating parodies of films like The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. It's been a few years since Lowe has appeared in a TV show or movie, but as this work makes clear, he still has a love for acting and comedy.
