Loretta Devine stars in "The Client List" on Lifetime as Georgia. She also plays the recurring role of Adele Webber on the hit ABC medical drama "Grey's Anatomy" and recently starred in ABC Family's comedy "State of Georgia" as Aunt Honey.

On the big screen, she recently starred in "Jumping the Broom," alongside Paula Patton, Laz Alonso and Angela Bassett, and in "Madea's Big Happy Family," alongside Tyler Perry and Bow Wow, as Shirley.

Equally at home on stage or on screen, award-winning actress Loretta Devine has created some of the most memorable roles in theater, film and television. Devine first captured national attention in the role of Lorrell, one of the three original "Dreamgirls" in Michael Bennett's classic award-winning Broadway musical of the same name. She followed that performance 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 her status as one of the 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," which earned Devine an NAACP Image Award for Best Supporting Actress. She also won an NAACP Image Award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in Penny Marshall's "The Preacher's Wife," and received an IFP "Spirit" Award nomination for Best Actress for her work in "Women Thou Art Loosed." Devine was featured in the Academy Award-winning film "Crash" and the hit movie of "Dreamgirls." Additional film credits for Devine include appearances in the successful "Urban Legend" franchise, "I Am Sam," opposite Michelle Pfeiffer and Sean Penn, "Kingdom Come," "What Women Want," "Punks," "Hoodlums," "Down in the Delta" and "Stanley and Iris."

Devine 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." Most recently she co-starred in two Sony Screen Gems films—"This Christmas" and "First Sunday." Both films opened Number 1 at the box office. Rounding out Devine's 2007 slate of films was the film festival favorite "Dirty laundry." Up next is the 2008 release of the animated feature "South of The Border" for Disney, starring Drew Barrymore. She voices the character of Delta, the chocolate brown toy poodle.

Devine appeared onscreen in several films in 2010 including the Sony Screen Gems remake of "Death at a Funeral" with Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence and Danny Glover and "Lottery Ticket" for Alcon/Warner Brothers. More recently, Devine was seen onscreen in the Lionsgate film "For Colored Girls," directed by Tyler Perry.

On television, Devine most recently was seen on "Eli Stone," which had a two season run.

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." Devine also provided the voice of 'Muriel Stubbs' on the beloved animated series "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.
