"I think Debra Messing is almost our modern day Audrey Hepburn. There's always something magical about the way she looks," Merle Ginsberg, the entertainment editor of Women's Wear Daily, told an interviewer for Entertainment Tonight (December 21, 2001, on-line). A classically trained stage, television, and film actress, Messing is best known for her portrayal of the interior designer Grace Adler on NBC's award-winning sitcom "Will & Grace," which debuted in 1998 and completed eight successful seasons. In one of her most prominent movie roles to date, Messing played opposite Woody Allen in "Hollywood Ending" (2002). "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, Messing's co-star on "Will & Grace," has said, as quoted on the Web site askmen.com. Woody Allen described Messing to Jeannie Williams for USA Today (April 3, 2002, on-line) as a "natural comic talent... beautiful, very, very gifted. She lights up everything she does."
