Our 11 Favorite Actors Turned Directors
So let’s just get this out of the way upfront: There is virtually nothing that Debbie Allen can’t do. She can act. She can dance. She can write. She can produce. And she most definitely can direct. We came to know and love Allen on “Fame” and the dozens upon dozens of other roles she’s had in some of our favorite shows and movies. But she wasted no time getting in on that director game. She not only tackled numerous episodes of “Fame,” but also directed episodes of “Family Ties,” “Quantum Leap,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Girlfriends,” “Everybody Hates Chris” and many others.
