Biography

Equally dazzling on both big and small screens, actress Carla Gugino was a true beauty with a talent that transcended any medium. After a brief modeling career, Gugino became a regular on the primetime soap "Falcon Crest" (CBS, 1980-1991) and later had a regular role on the first season of "Spin City" (ABC, 1996-2002) before the show was revamped. Moving easily back-and-forth between movies and television, she had supporting roles in "Snake Eyes" (1998) and "Spy Kids" (2001), while joining the cast of "Chicago Hope" (CBS, 1994-2000) during its final season. After attracting the attention of important industry players, Gugino suddenly found herself the star of her own series, "Karen Sisco" (ABC, 2003), which was based on a character created by Elmore Leonard, but the series was canceled after 10 episodes despite positive reviews. Meanwhile, she had big-screen roles in "The Lookout" (2007) and "American Gangster" (2007), and received the most buzz of her career by playing super-agent Amanda Daniels - chief nemesis of Ari Gold - on "Entourage" (HBO, 2004-2011). From there, she had supporting parts in "Watchmen" (2009) and "Sucker Punch" (2011), played Hank Moody's lawyer on season four of "Californication" (Showtime, 2007- ) and reprised Karen Sisco for "Justified" (FX, 2010- ). Thanks to her charm, allure and ability to traverse multiple mediums, Gugino remained one of Hollywood's more in-demand actresses.
