Biography

After dancing her way into the backgrounds of many musically oriented major Hollywood features, Bree Turner picked up a yearning to enter the acting game in earnest and started out on the prowl for speaking parts. From her early jobs on the series "Undressed" (MTV 1999-2002) and in films like "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo" (1999) to a regular role on the fantasy crime series "Grimm" (NBC 2011-), Turner proved herself just as capable an actress as she ever was a background dancer. Bree Nicole Turner was born on March 10, 1977 in Palo Alto, California. She was one of four children-the only girl-of professional football player Kevin Turner. Graduating from Monte Vista High School in 1995, Turner traveled overseas to enroll at King's College London, but returned to her home state soon enough to study dance at the University of California, Los Angeles. Turner's musical background landed her a number of dance roles in film and television, notably in "My Best Friend's Wedding" (1997), "She's All That" (1999), and "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" (1999). One of Turner's earliest genuine acting jobs came with the anthology TV series "Undressed" (MTV 1999-2002), in which she starred opposite fellow rising stars Christina Hendricks, Max Greenfield, and Pedro Pascal. Turner made her speaking debut in a feature film in "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo" (1999). After this, Turner began filling out her résumé with an special focus on comedy. She appeared in romantic comedies like "The Wedding Planner" (2001), though dealt primarily in raunchy screwball material such as "Joe Dirt" (2001), "American Pie 2" (2001), and "Sorority Boys" (2002). Turner accumulated more television work thereafter, with recurring appearances on "Spin City" (ABC 1996-2002) and "Cold Case" (CBS 2003-2010), as well as a starring role on the short-lived sitcom "Good Girls Don't" (Oxygen 2004). She continued to take parts film comedies, notably "Just My Luck" (2006), "The Ugly Truth" (2009), and "Jewtopia" (2012). Turner's most consistent job came with the launch of the fantasy crime drama series "Grimm" (NBC 2011-), which she joined as a recurring character midway through the first season. By Season 2, Turner was a fixture of the regular cast.
