What Daphne Actress Jane Leeves Looks Like Today


Before joining the cast of “Frasier,” Jane Leeves was best known for her roles on television series like “Murphy Brown” and “Seinfeld.” “Frasier” catapulted her into primetime glory, and in 1998, the actress earned an Emmy nomination for her work on the series. When the show ended, Leeves faced the daunting task of separating herself from the role she had been playing for 11 years.

She was successful in that capacity. From 2010 to 2015, Leeves starred in TV Land’s “Hot in Cleveland” alongside Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick, and Betty White. Leeves plays Joy Scroggs, a beautician to the stars who decamps from the youth-obsessed culture of Los Angeles to Cleveland. Leeves also starred as Dr. Kit Voss in the Fox medical drama “The Resident,” which aired from 2018 until its cancelation in 2023 after six seasons.

Leeve’s involvement in “The Resident” prevented her from joining the ongoing “Frasier” reboot. In 2021, the actress told Entertainment Weekly that she wasn’t sure if she could be a part of the series. “I have no idea, but I won’t be leaving ‘The Resident’ to do that if it happens.”

Since “The Resident” was canceled, Leeves theoretically has the availability to reprise the role of Daphne should the “Frasier” revival be renewed for a second season.
