Petra Wright Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Compared in the press to a younger version of Tippi Hedren, American actress Petra Wright began racking up roles from the early 2000s onward, and consistently combined natural beauty and presence with a slight edge and an undercurrent of stoicism -- qualities that led her into a series of roles with inherent depth. Though the actress first entered the limelight with a couple of guest appearances on the Jennifer Garner thriller series Alias, Wright quickly demonstrated multifacetedness with her fine performance in Austin Chick's sexually charged psychological drama XX/XY (2002). Wright landed her first major lead in director Jason Ruscio's harrowing feature Laura Smiles (2005), as a widowed woman who embarks on a series of increasingly destructive affairs to appease her inner suffering. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
