Gina Torres Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Apr 25, 1969
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

A statuesque beauty whose first love as an actor was the stage, Gina Torres immersed herself in her craft by connecting with a live audience; the symbiotic energy that it created fueled her passion for acting and encouraged her to pursue a career in film and television in addition to her multiple Broadway roles. Born the youngest of three siblings in a close-knit Cuban family in New York, Torres received early voice training at New York's High School of Music and Art. Trained in opera and jazz, the talented mezzo-soprano also sang in a gospel choir, refining her versatile voice into a finely developed instrument with remarkable range. Although regular viewers of TV fantasy no doubt recognize her from recurring roles on [[Feature~V175066~Hercules: The Legendary Journeys~hercules:thelegendaryjourneys[tvseries]]] and its sister show, [[Feature~V281847~Xena: Warrior Princess~xena:warriorprincess[tvseries]]], the talented actress and singer also appeared in such popular small-screen action and drama series as [[Feature~V220882~Dark Angel~darkangel[tvseries]]], [[Feature~V186571~Cleopatra 2525~cleopatra2525[tvseries]]], [[Feature~V273396~Firefly~firefly[tvseries]]], [[Feature~V255661~Alias~alias[tvseries]]], [[Feature~V168210~Any Day Now~anydaynow[tvseries]]], and [[Feature~V181391~Angel~angel[tvseries]]]. Married to actor [[Performer~P23625~Laurence Fishburne~laurencefishburne]] since September 2002, Torres' film roles have included 1996's [[Feature~V135528~Bed of Roses~bedofroses]] and [[Feature~V279420~The Matrix Reloaded~thematrixreloaded]] (2003). She had a recurring role on the TV series Angel. She appeared in a number of projects including Serenity, and the Chris Rock comedy I Think I Love My Wife. In 2010 she was cast in the made-for-cable series Huge, about teens at a fat camp, and voiced Superwoman for the animated Justice League series. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
