Debra Messing was best known for her role on Will & Grace. As Grace Adler, she depicted a Jewish interior designer who lived in New York with her gay best friend Will Truman. Throughout the show, she became infamous for her string of boyfriends, many of which were portrayed by notable guest stars such as Gregory Hines and Woody Harrelson. In a span of eight years, she won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, and earned nominations for 6 Golden Globe Awards among others.

After her stint on Will and Grace, Messing served as the voice of the character Park Ranger Beth in the animated film Open Season. Recently, she starred in the movie Lucky You, in which she played the role of Suzanne Offer.

This year, Messing will star in the film Purple Violets as the character Kate Scott. The said movie is a romantic comedy about an unhappy woman who finds new love with her old boy friend. The cast includes Selma Blair as Patti Petalson, Patrick Wilson as Brian Callahan, Edward Burns as Michael Murphy, and Dennis Farina as Gilmore.
