Bio

Ivana Milicevic is a Yugoslav-born American actress best known for her role as Bond girl Valenka in Casino Royale (2006) and for her starring role as Carrie Hopewell, once a notorious jewel thief who now lives in Banshee under an assumed identity with a husband and children who know nothing of her past, in the action drama television series Banshee.

Milicevic is also known as one of the stars of the HBO original series Mind of the Married Man and starred with Tom Cavanaugh and Judy Greer in the CBS series Love Monkey.

Born in Sarajevo, Ivana's family brought her to America when she was five years old and she grew up in Michigan. She started modeling while in high school and graduated early to follow her acting dreams in Los Angeles.

While continuing to model all over the world, Ivana decided stand up comedy might help break her into acting. She did stand up at The Comedy Store and was soon discovered by a manager, which lead her to her first job, a guest spot on Seinfeld as Patti, the wife of the Russian tennis player, Milosh.

Ivana went on to a supporting role in Jerry Maguire and a memorable role in Enemy of the State opposite Will Smith and Gene Hackman. She then starred in the feature film Head Over Heels opposite Freddie Prinze Jr. and Monica Potter.

Her other feature film credits include Vanilla Sky, Down With Love, Love Actually, Paycheck, Just Like Heaven, Running Scared, Casino Royale and What's Your Number? with Anna Faris and Chris Evans.

She has also made countless television appearances, including guest starring roles on Felicity, Friends, Just Shoot Me, CSI: Miami, Ugly Betty, The Unit, Royal Pains, House, Hawaii Five-O, Charlie's Angels and Psych.

Her younger brother Tomo is a guitarist for rock band 30 Seconds to Mars.
