Bio

Aisha Hinds is an American actress best known for her role as Mona Gomez on the short-lived science fiction television series Invasion, from 2005-2006.

She starred as Lieutenant Maureen Mason in the police procedural crime drama television series Detroit 1-8-7, from 2010-2011; and had a recurring role as Annie Price on the third season of the crime drama series The Shield, appearing in nine episodes from 2003-2004.

She also has a starring role as Carolyn Hill, a Los Angeles entertainment attorney who is trapped in Chester's Mill with her partner Alice and daughter Norrie, in the science fiction horror television series Under the Dome, based on the novel by Stephen King.

When Hinds' junior high school tap dance instructor observed that she needed an outlet for expression that went beyond her tap shoes, Hinds was guided to the LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts in New York, where her formal acting training began.

She began her career in the schools, churches, prisons, group homes and on the streets of New York City as a cast member with a local Brooklyn-based group called the Health Watch Players.

She went on to obtain a BFA in theatre at the University of Miami and graduated with honours and acclaim, having starred in Mame, Anything Goes, Tartuffe, A Piece of My Heart and The Colored Museum.

She took home the title of Miss Black University of Miami and the award for Best Talent before following the call to Los Angeles.

Hinds' break came when she was offered the opportunity to expose injustice playing Carla Howell on the critically acclaimed drama, NYPD Blue.

Hinds' numerous television credits include guest appearances on Boston Legal, Medium, CSI: NY, Judging Amy, Crossing Jordan, ER, Standoff, Lost, Stargate SG-1 and True Blood. She also starred opposite Marcia Gay Harden in the pilot H.A.T.E. (2006).

Her feature film credits include Assault on Precinct 13, Mr. Brooks, Unstoppable, The Next Three Days and the television movie Project 5.

Hinds returned to her first love, the stage, in the Barrington Stage Company original production of The Best of Enemies, playing the role of civil rights activist Ann Atwater to critical acclaim and encore performances.

Her theatre credits include August Wilson's Fences and Night, Mother at the American Theatre of Harlem, Tartuffe, Anything Goes, Mame at the Jerry Herman Ring Theatre, George C. Wolfe's The Colored Museum and A Piece of My Heart at the Alvin Sherman Stage.

Hinds lives in Los Angeles.
