As a native of the small town of Maurice, LA, Denise Boutté fostered the practical dream of becoming a doctor. Following her graduation from high school obtaining a degree in mass communications from Louisiana State University, Boutté’s creative interests led her to the world of advertising, where she quickly became an account executive on the rise. In that capacity, she worked at a number of leading Dallas-based advertising agencies. Her clients included Pampers, Fossil and Mary Kay Cosmetics. While overseeing the production of her clients commercials, Boutté was introduced to and became fascinated by the world of acting.
After meeting a local talent agent, Boutté found herself in front of the lens for a variety of print and commercial campaigns. After auditioning for what she considered a nearly impossible role to obtain, she was cast as a supporting character in Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married.
In less than three years, Boutté has emerged as one of Hollywood’s freshest and most sought after new faces with guest and recurring roles on such popular TV shows as Everybody Hates Chris, the Emmy®-winning drama Boston Legal, Girlfriends and Days of Our Lives.
