More than 25 years after bursting onto the television scene in Fox’s Emmy-winning series “In Living Color,” T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh reunites with one of her “In Living Color” co-stars, Tommy Davidson on screen in Anthony C. Ferrante’s SHARKNADO 4: THE 4TH AWAKENS. Playing the sharp and tech savvy Tech Terry, Keymah will be making a celebrity cameo appearance alongside Davidson and Donna Mills (Knots Landing).

"It was great working with my buddy Tommy again, it was as if no time had passed since we were on the KTLA lot 20 years ago,” said Keymáh.

Viewers will also recognize Keymáh from her other highly acclaimed television series regular roles as Tanya Baxter in Disney’s “That’s So Raven,” Scotti Decker in ABC’s “On Our Own” and Erica Lucas in CBS’s “Cosby.”  


Sharknado 4 marks the return of T'Keyah Crystal Keymáh to television since her last guest starring role on BET's “Let's Stay Together” in 2013. She will be appearing next in the quirky college comedy feature film “What Happened Last Night,” directed and produced by Candice T. Cain. She’s currently in post-production for the musical feature “Revival!” in which she performs and is producing. Her newest solo stage show “Don’t Get Me Started,” the follow up to her award winning “Some of My Best Friends,” will debut in Chicago this fall.

 

SHARKNADO 4: THE 4TH AWAKENS premieres on the Syfy channel, July 31st at 8 PM ET.
