Mavis McCready, played by Oprah Winfrey on the hit OWN show Greenleaf, is the wise and compassionate aunt of Grace Greenleaf and the sister of Lady Mae Greenleaf and Robert "Mac" McCready. As the recent owner of a Memphis blues club, Mavis lives her life at night, says Greenleaf production designer John Hansen, and the amber-toned light that pours in through her apartment windows in the opening moments of Season 2 reflects Mavis' identity on a deep level.
