Actress Debra Messing had one request when she signed on to "Will & Grace" reboot -- that her character must be a feminist.

"The only thing that I asked for was that Grace be a feminist. That she have a voice," she told an audience at the Tribeca TV Festival last week, reports pagesix.com.

In the premiere episode, Grace will compromise her political beliefs to take a design job.

The 49-year-old actress has been vocal about her political beliefs in the last election, even getting into a Twitter argument with actress Susan Sarandon.

Messing also talked about the challenges of coming back to her famous role 11 years later.

"I think it took a little bit. I think the language was there and that I recognized right away and my body recognized it, but you know, it's been 11 years and I think that I was a little tentative. I think eventually by the third episode I just sort of relaxed and I was like, ‘Okay, she's back'," she said.
