"Smart, well-spoken, down-to-earth. She comes to work without makeup. She orders McDonald's more than she should. She listens. She is the least flaky actress I know."
-Eric McCormack on Debra Messing.
Debra Messing has seemingly appeared out of nowhere, but in fact she has been in the acting profession for quiet some time. Critics applaud her as her generation's version of Lucille Ball; but in our view, Debra sets her own standard as an actress, where comparisons are useless.
Debra Messing was born in Brooklyn, and raised in a quiet community just outside Providence, Rhode Island. Messing majored in theater arts at Brandeis University where she received her liberal arts education. Half of her junior years were spent in London's prestigious B.E.S.G.L. program. Upon graduating from Brandeis, Debra was accepted into New York University's Elite Graduate Acting Program and received her Masters of fine arts degree three years later.
