Bio

Cherry Jones is an American actress known primarily for her stage work, including her Tony-winning lead performances in Lincoln Center's 1995 production of The Heiress and John Patrick Shanley's play Doubt, which opened at the Walter Kerr Theatre in March 2005.

She also had a starring role as Dr. Evans, one of Michael's (Jason Isaacs) therapists who insists she is not a part of his dreams, on the police procedural fantasy drama television series Awake, in 2012.

Other Broadway credits include Nora Ephron's play Imaginary Friends (with Swoosie Kurtz); Angels in America: Millennium Approaches and Perestroika, the 2000 revival of A Moon for the Misbegotten, and Timberlake Wertenbaker's Our Country's Good, for which she earned her first Tony nomination.

In recent years, Jones has ventured into the film industry, in which she has played mostly supporting roles. Her screen credits include Cradle Will Rock, The Perfect Storm, Ocean's Twelve, Signs, The Village.

Jones also played President Allison Taylor on the made-for-TV movie 24: Redemption and the last two seasons of the Fox series 24, for which she won an Emmy Award in 2009.

She was born in Paris, Tennessee, to a high school teacher mother and a flower shop owner father. Jones, who is a lesbian, has long been frank about her sexuality and romantic engagements. In 1995, when Jones accepted her first Tony Award, she thanked her then partner, architect Mary O'Connor.

When she accepted her Best Actress Tony in 2005 for her work in Doubt, she thanked "Laura Wingfield", a character in the then-current Broadway revival of The Glass Menagerie, played by actress Sarah Paulson, her partner until 2009.
