“In an epic, action-packed tale that spans the entire globe, from Monte Carlo to Hong Kong, beloved characters from Days of our Lives once again go Beyond Salem! as they trade the comforts of home for an adventure of a lifetime! Supercouple Steve and Kayla make a surprise visit to their children in Seattle, while private eye John Black travels to San Francisco to see his son, Paul. Meanwhile, new parents Ben and Ciara drop anchor in Montreal – where they are greeted by a much-missed Hope!

Devine won her audiences over with stellar performances in popular movies and television shows, including “Waiting to Exhale,” “For Colored Girls,” “Gray’s Anatomy” and “Thou Art Loosed.”

Devine has won five NAACP awards for her roles. It has not all been smooth smailing. Last year, she made headlines after she spoke about an interaction she had with actor, Gregory Hines.

“Gregory was so wonderful in so many ways. He was my leading man in ‘Waiting To Exhale,’ and he was the only man smart enough on my first day of shooting to have roses everywhere for me, and I always brag on him because nobody else did that,” she said in an episode of “Uncensored.”

“I remember him telling me, ‘Now as soon as this movie is over you have to lose all the weight to move into the next category.’ I don’t know category that was because I never lost the weight like he talked about,” she added. She says that despite Hollywood being difficult for Black actors, she never focused on issues such as colorism.
