Birth Place: Brooklyn, New York, USA Profession: Cast ... actor


A vivacious performer with a knack for verbal and physical comedy, actress Debra Messing was a Emmy and Screen Actors Guild Award-winning actress who dominated the sitcom scene for eight years as lovelorn interior designer Grace Adler on "Will and Grace" (ABC, 1998-2006). It was during this masterful run as the ditzy Adler that Messing received the ultimate compliment for any comedienne, an oft-cited comparison to Lucille Ball. During and after the show's run, Messing found time to make her mark in feature films like "Hollywood Ending" (2002), "Along Came Polly" (2004) and "The Wedding Date" (2005), while even voicing characters in animated films like "Garfield: The Movie" (2004) and "Open Season" (2006). She earned considerable acclaim as a spurned wife and mother on the popular summer miniseries, "The Starter Wife" (USA Network, 2007), which earned her more awards recognition. Though the series based on "The Starter Wife" failed to catch on with audiences in 2008, Messing returned to the fore with a leading role on the popular musical drama "Smash" (NBC, 2012-13). Regardless of the project, the red-haired beauty always delivered a quality performance that more often than not brought her both critical and commercial success.
