Bio

Judy Reyes is an American actress best known for her starring role as Nurse Carla Espinosa on the medical intern comedy Scrubs, from 2001-2009.

She also has a starring role as Zoila Diaz, a maid who works in the home of Beverly Hills socialite Genevieve Delatour and is dependable, good-hearted and full of tough love, in the comedy-drama television series Devious Maids.

Reyes grew up in the Bronx and became interested in acting while attending Hunter College in Manhattan. In 1992, she landed her first major acting role in the independent feature film Jack and His Friends opposite Sam Rockwell, and went on to perform extensively in the New York theatre.

She is particularly proud of her work with the LAByrinth Theatre Company, a multi-cultural acting space in Manhattan where she is a founding member, along with Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Rockwell, John Ortiz and Lauren Velez, among others.

She has served with the Company as both actor and producer on numerous productions over the past 10 years.

Reyes' other film credits include the independent picture Dirty opposite Cuba Gooding, Jr., Martin Scorcese's Bringing Out the Dead with Nicolas Cage, Went to Coney Island on a Mission from God, Be Back at Five and Washington Heights.

Additionally, Reyes starred in and produced the independent film Glow Ropes: The Rise and Fall of a Bar Mitzvah Emcee, with her husband Edwin M. Figueroa co-directing with George Valencia.

Glow Ropes screened and won the Best Film award at the 2005 HBO New York Latino Film Festival. It also premiered at the 2005 Cannes International Film Festival and screened at the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival.

She also acted in and co-produced (with her husband) Taino, a short film that was screened at the 1999 New York International Latino Film Festival and was one of four finalists to air on Showtime's Latino Filmmakers Forum.

Reyes' other television credits include a star turn opposite Doris Roberts in the 2006 Hallmark Original Movie Our House. She had a recurring role as Tina on the acclaimed prison drama series Oz, and has appeared in The Sopranos and 100 Centre Street.

Her made-for-television movies include John Sanford's Mind Prey with Eriq La Salle, and The Prosecutors.

Reyes resides in Los Angeles during production, but frequently returns to her native New York.
