Equally at home on stage or on screen, award-winning actress LORETTA DEVINE has created some of the most memorable roles in theatre, film and television. She first captured national attention in the role of Lorrell, one of the three original "Dreamgirls” in Michael Bennett's classic award-winning Broadway musical, which has since been adapted into a hit motion picture in which she made a cameo appearance. 

Devine followed that role with a fiery portrayal of Lillian in Bob Fosse's critically acclaimed stage production "Big Deal.” Subsequent work in George C. Wolfe's "Colored Museum” and "Lady Day at Emerson Bar and Grill,” cemented Devine's status as one of our most talented and versatile stage actresses. Film roles soon followed, including a poignant turn as a single mother opposite Whitney Houston, Angela Bassett and Gregory Hines in Waiting to Exhale that earned her a NAACP Image Award for Best Supporting Actress. 

Devine also won an NAACP Image Award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in Penny Marshall's The Preacher's Wife. She received an ISP Spirit Award for Best Actress for her work in Women Thou Art Loosed. More recently, Devine was featured in the Academy Award-winning film Crash. 

Additional film credits include appearances in the successful Urban Legend franchise, I Am Sam opposite Michelle Pfeiffer and Sean Pean, Kingdom Come, What Women Want, Punks, Hoodlums, Down in the Delta and Stanley and Iris. She also appeared in Sticky Fingers, Amos and Andrew, The Breaks, The Price of Kissing, Lover Girl, Class Act, Living Large, Caged Fear and Little Nikita. 

On television, Devine is currently featured in the hit ABC medical drama series "Grey's Anatomy.” She received three NAACP Image Awards for her role on David E. Kelly's Fox series "Boston Public.” Additional credits include series roles in "A Different World” and Lifetime Television's "Wild Card.” She also provided the voice of Muriel Stubbs on the beloved cartoon "The PJ's.” 

Devine graduated from the University of Houston and later received a Master of Fine Arts in Theater Arts from Brandeis University. She currently resides in Los Angeles.
