Bio

Michelle Forbes is an American actress best known for her television work on shows such as Star Trek: The Next Generation, Homicide: Life on the Street, 24, Battlestar Galactica, Prison Break and True Blood.

She also starred as Mitch Larsen in the crime drama television series The Killing, from 2011-2012.

Additionally, she starred as Kate Weston in the critically acclaimed HBO series In Treatment, opposite Gabriel Byrne and Dianne Wiest.

Forbes also starred in the award-winning Canadian series Durham County as Dr. Penelope Verrity, a forensic psychiatrist who is fighting her own psychological collapse, for which she won the International Monte Carlo Golden Nymph award for Best Actress.

In the 90s, Forbes appeared in such independent films as Kalifornia, starring opposite Brad Pitt and David Duchovny, and Swimming with Sharks with Kevin Spacey, to name a few.

In 1996, Forbes was asked to join the award-winning series Homicide: Life on the Street, having met Tom Fontana that same year when she starred opposite Stockard Channing in the television movie The Prosecutors, also written and produced by Lynda La Plante, the creator of Prime Suspect.

Forbes then went on to do the critically hailed yet controversial and short lived series about a mental hospital, Wonderland, for ABC, as well as Johnson County War, an epic western filmed for the Hallmark Channel.

Terribly fond of working in the UK, her other series credits include a three year stint on the lauded BBC television series Messiah opposite Ken Stott, and a recurring role on the BBC1 drama Waking the Dead.

She is also a veteran of the 2nd season of 24, playing Lynn Kresge.

In 2005, Forbes starred as Admiral Helena Cain in the intelligent and politically charged Battlestar Galactica.

In addition to her extensive television work Forbes has continued to appear in such independent films as Dandelion, which was received admirably at Sundance.
