At the start of her career, Scott was just a singer-turned-occasional-actress, making guest appearances on shows like UPNâ€™s Girlfriends. That all changed once she connected with Perry for 2007â€™s Why Did I Get Married? Allowed to show her range on the big screen, the Philadelphia native landed the lead role in HBOâ€™s The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency. That was followed by her turn as a recovering alcoholic in Lifetimeâ€™s Sins of the Mother, a made-for TV movie that became the second most-watched and rated original movie in the networkâ€™s history. Last year, Scott reprised her role as Sheila in Perryâ€™s Why Did I Get Married Too?, which grossed over $60 million.
