Biography

A successful modeling career led Andrea Thompson to the study of acting. Although she made her feature debut as a hooker in Oliver Stone's "Wall Street" (1987) and has a handful of other movies to her credit, most of this blonde's work has been for the small screen. Thompson played the vixen Genele Erickson on CBS's "Falcon Crest" for the 1989-90 season, earning a Soap Opera Digest Award for her performance. From 1994 to 1995, she portrayed the telepathic Talia Winters on the syndicated "Babylon 5" before moving on to her recurring role as Commander Krennick on NBC's "Jag". Thompson then joined the cast of "NYPD Blue" during the 1996-97 season in the recurring role of Detective Jill Kirkendall, a part which became regular the following season. She has also employed her distinct and unusual vocal talents in a successful voice-over career.
