Keith David, who starred as "Bishop James Greenleaf" in the episodic drama "Greenleaf," and his wife of 19 years, celebrated their anniversary with adorable posts on Instagram.


One of the Instagram uploads showed Keith and his woman, Dionne Lea, in their wedding outfits. The couple wore white-colored attires from top to bottom. While they excitedly co-sliced their wedding cake.


Dionne had her baby bump bulging visibly in her wedding dress, and the bride donned a modest piece of jewelry on her neck.

The "Greenleaf" actor's wife let the picture speak and penned very few words under the picture. Lea wrote, "19 years today. Still going." David also shared a photo, with a heartfelt caption that read:

"Time flies when you're having fun with the one God created just for you! Happy Anniversary, my love! #19YearsStrong."


Lovers of the actor added congratulatory messages in the comment section. Recently, Keith has been expressive concerning a Netflix production that featured his voice as "Thrull in "The Last Kids on Earth."

During an interview, the actor opened up about other areas of his life, like his other works, and gave a candid opinion about his favorite characters.


The "Greenleaf" star told the interviewer that what he was cooking at the moment is a musical project that follows the life of Joe Williams.

Keith David opined that one of the characters he can compare with his reality is "Bishop James Greenleaf" in the OWN network series. According to him:

"I used to want to be a preacher, so this was a fulfillment to a fantasy… I was happy and excited to come on board.


The show's season 5, which is a production of media mogul Oprah Winfrey, is set to premiere in September. It revolves around a Memphis-based church and the family in charge of running it.

Other notable TV personalities on the project asides from Keith are Lynn Whitfield, Lamman Rucker, Kim Hawthorne, Merle Dandridge, among others.

Keith has built a reputable career over the years with a lot of hard work. The actor's career began in 1979 with his first television role.

From television dramas to voice-overs to Broadway productions, Keith seems to have had his hands deep in anything theatrical.

David's outstanding success has earned his due recognition in the entertainment industry. With over forty years of experience in the art, one would say that he sure knows his onions when it comes to role play.
