  • Actor bio

A single mom, Angie lives with her teenage son, Manny, in a rented house in a neighborhood that’s seen better days. She drives a “classic” Oldsmobile Hurst... no CD player, no Bluetooth, and the shocks went out with the last administration. But it runs, and it’s paid for.

Angie’s life may not be easy, but it’s her own... and she lives it on her terms. That makes her a good mom, also makes her a great homicide detective. With Angie, what you see is what you get.

The problem is most people underestimate her. Big mistake. Angie’s got almost a sixth sense when it comes to bullshit. She knows when a perp is lying. She can smell when something’s not right. When her superiors get on her ass about following procedure and sticking to the rules, Angie doesn’t listen. Experience has taught her to ignore the party line and pay attention to that nagging feeling in her gut instead.

The hard knocks of Angie’s life have only made her tougher, more resilient, and more determined not to give up. She made up her mind to learn from every mistake, every bad relationship, and every lousy job. 

Angie barrels through investigations like a semi-truck, impulsively saying whatever comes to her mind to whomever she’s speaking to. Some people are offended by her flame-throwing style, others appreciate it, but either way it throws suspects off guard. While Angie may be blunt, she’s also caring... a dangerous combination for a criminal desperately trying to hide the truth of their crime.
