Biography

Although she first established herself as a singer-actress on stage in such shows as "Ain't Misbehavin'" and "The Wiz", Yvette Freeman has become better known to millions of TV viewers for pulling double duty on two NBC series. On the award-winning medical drama "ER", she has appeared in the recurring role of nurse Haleh Adams since its inception. From fall 1997 to spring 1999, Freeman has simultaneously played the persnickety office manager Evelyn Smalley in the sitcom "Working". She particularly cherished the latter role as she based the character on a former boss who "watched everyone like a hawk, and even counted paper clips."
