Denise Marie Lawton (born May 2, 1978) is a model and actress commonly known as Denyce Lawton.



Lawton is of African American and Korean descent. Born in Seoul, South Korea, Lawton is the middle child of three children. She lived a military life with her family abroad in such countries as Korea, Japan, and Germany. Her family moved around the US, living primarily in Neptune, New Jersey then in Washington D.C. In 1996, she graduated from Largo High School in Largo, Maryland. She went to highschool with R&B singer Mya Harrison. Lawton has long been romantically involved with actor Wesley Jonathan.


In 1998, Lawton was offered an assistant Vice President position at Warner Bros. Records[1]. She was also an Assistant Junior Publicist at 20th Century Fox Films.

With limited experience and opportunities, Lawton participated in several Theatrical Plays as well as the famous Shakespeare In The Park Company. She began modeling for Kemi Oil, FUBU, ADIDAS, Enyce, Karl Kani and Baby Phat. While pursuing her acting and modeling career, she also appeared in several Hip Hop/R&B music videos; "Rock Star" by N.E.R.D, "Peaches & Cream" by 112, "One Mic" by Nas, "Anything" by Jaheim, and "Want It, Need It" by Plies. Lawton say these video appearances were to accumulate enough camera experience and money to fund her acting pursuits before she decided to move to Los Angeles, California in December 2001.

Other film credits include the films Soul Plane, Go for Broke, and It Ain't Easy. Denyce has also appeared in television shows such as Entourage, Scratch & Burn, Half & Half, The Parkers, the action auto thriller Redline, and 7eventy 5ive.
