While growing up in the small town of Maurice, Louisiana, Denise Boutté dreamed a more practical dream of becoming a doctor, while conquering this mystical
place called Hollywood and becoming a film and TV star never really crossed her mind. Following graduation from North Vermilion High School and thereafter obtaining a degree in Mass Communications from Louisiana State University, Denise's creative intuition led her to the world of advertising where she quickly became a respected account executive at various leading Dallas, Texas-based advertising agencies, tending to the clients of various brands including Pampers, Fossil, Mary Kay Cosmetics, among others. While overseeing commercial and photo shoots for her clients' campaigns, Denise was introduced to life on-set
and became fascinated by the endless possibilities this new world offered.
Before long, following an introduction to a local talent agent, Denise found herself in front of the lens for a variety of print and commercial campaigns. A series of introductions landed her a talent manager in Hollywood, and Denise decided to take a leap of faith, packed her truck and headed West.
In less than two years, Denise has emerged as one of Hollywood's busiest new faces, highlighted with guest and recurring roles on numerous popular TV shows, including Everybody Hates Chris, Boston Legal, Girlfriends, Days of Our Lives, Cuts and Noah's Arc. On the big screen, Denise is featured in lead roles in the soon to be released SISTER'S KEEPER, NOLA, BEHIND THE SMILE, PARENTAL GUIDANCE SUGGESTED and WELCOME TO HOLLYWOOD, among others. Most recently, Denise has teamed up with entertainment pioneer, Tyler Perry, playing the series regular role of Sasha Bowman in Meet The Browns, his next highly-anticipated TV series.
