What Happened To The Cast Of The Color Purple?

After Sofia leaves him, Harpo eventually marries another woman called Squeak, portrayed by Rae Dawn Chong. The daughter of comedian Tommy Chong from the “Cheech & Chong” comedy duo, “The Color Purple” came out the same year as another one of the actress’ memorable roles: Cindy in the action flick “Commando,”  which also featured Arnold Schwarzenegger and Dan Hedaya. Her star power only grew from there.

In addition to “The Color Purple,” Chong starred in films like “Jeff Who Lives at Home,” “Tales From the Darkside: The Movie,” and “Soul Man” (where she met her second husband, C. Thomas Howell). Her television credits are also numerous and include such shows as “Melrose Place,” “9-1-1,” “Better Things,” “That’s So Raven,” and “Mysterious Ways.” One of her most recent roles was her portrayal of personal secretary to President Bill Clinton, Betty Currie, in the miniseries “Impeachment: American Crime Story.”
