Where are they now? After Room 222 was cancelled, Denise Nicholas had a string of roles in film comedies with Bill Cosby and Sidney Poitier. She later played feisty councilwoman Harriet DeLong on the TV series “In The Heat of the Night,” a role explored one of the first interracial relationships on prime time when DeLong became the on-screen love interest of Carroll O’Connor’s character Police Chief Bill Gillespie. She also wrote the scripts for six of the series’ episodes and a two-hour “Heat of the Night” TV movie. Now 61, Denise Nicholas recently published her first novel called “Freshwater Road,” about an African-American woman who travels to the south to challenge segregation during the Freedom Summer of 1964.

Didn't even remember her from Room 222. Loved her on In the Heat of the Night. Pretty true stuff about how interracial relationships were viewed in small town South.

Ms. Nicholas, is an intelligent beautiful and powerful women. I looked to her as my role model from my youth. I truly admire her. She is a fighter for justice for ALL! Ms. Nicholas is a blessing from heaven. She is truly one of a God's children. She's been doing what she was created to do which is God's work. She is caring, passionate, and loving. She show compassion. She stand up when She's been knocked down. She is a brave women and relatable. I wish you many blessings and keep you in my heart and prayers. A beautiful Sprit. I still look at the reruns of The Heat of the Night in the evening with my 84 year old mother. My mother love you and Mr. C O'Connor. You touch my heart and soul. I would love to see you more on the screen or in person touring. I would even like to go to tea and have a girls day. This is the kind of person you seem to be. God bless you and keep you. You are heaven sent. Keep doing the Lord's work. May you have peace, joy, and much love. You are a precious soul you relate this on the screen. God Bless You. V.C.
