Constance Zimmer is an American actress best known for her roles in the television series Good Morning, Miami; Entourage; Joan of Arcadia; In Justice; and Boston Legal.
Born in Seattle and raised in Newport Beach, California, Constance moved to Los Angeles several years ago and has since acted consistently in commercials, plays, television and independent films.
Zimmer began her acting career in high school productions. Following high school, she was accepted to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles.
After finishing there, she continued to study with renowned teachers such as Stella Adler and Arthur Mendoza, which quickly led to acting in plays.
Between acting projects, Zimmer earned a living as a professional fundraiser for charitable foundations such as AIDS Project Los Angeles, Tuesday's Child and The American Cinematheque.
After securing some national commercials (her first for Duracell was her most memorable), she devoted herself full-time to her acting career.
Zimmer made her television debut in the comedy series Ellen, and earned kudos (a Best Actress Dramalogue Award) in the Los Angeles play, Catholic School Girls.
More television roles followed, with guest appearances on Seinfeld, King of Queens, The X- Files, Philly, Providence and Gideon's Crossing.
She also had recurring roles on The Wayans Brothers, Hyperion Bay, The Trouble with Normal and The Fighting Fitzgeralds and played a lead role in the criminal drama series In Justice.
She appeared as attorney Claire Simms on Season 3 of Boston Legal. She joined the regular cast in the episode "Lincoln". However, producers chose not to renew her contract at the end of the season.
Zimmer played the recurring role of uptight studio executive Dana Gordon on the HBO dramedy Entourage, from 2005-2011.
Feature film credits include the independent films Warm Blooded Killers, Senseless, Home Room, Spin Cycle and Chaos Theory.
The NBC comedy Good Morning Miami marked the actress' first series regular role, portraying Penny, the witty and burned-out office assistant to Mark Feuerstein's character, Jake Silver. Zimmer's deadpan delivery of zingers earned acclaim across the board.
Zimmer also appeared in the Hallmark Channel movie, Mystery Woman, opposite Kellie Martin and Robert Wagner.
