Character Bio

Lynn Ann Searcy (played by Persia White) was Joan and Toni's roommate at UCLA and lived with Joan for eight years before the series begins. Lynn holds five post-graduate degrees. Born to a black father and a bipolar white mother who comes from a wealthy family, Lynn was adopted by a white family in Seattle. She did not embrace her black background until attending college, where she met Joan and Toni. When Joan decides it is time for Lynn to move out of her home, Lynn reluctantly becomes more independent by taking on various, mostly menial job and moving into her own apartment. She produces a documentary on the HIV/AIDS pandemic, focusing on African-American women. While Lynn is depicted as the most sexually adventurous of the group (with frequent mentions of one-night stands, group sex, and sex toys), she also dates frequently. She is most attracted to artistic and spiritual men, and over the course of the series has relationships with a poet, a pastor, and a musician named Finn (the recording artist Tricky). After dating Finn, she discovers that music is her passion, and starts a band called Indigo Sky. Lynn is often considered the bohemian of the group, due to her carefree nature and down to earth personality.
