Jami Gertz Biography

Birth Name: Jami Gertz
Born: 10/28/1965
Birth Place: Chicago, Illinois, USA

Gertz once again tackled weekly series as the youngest of a trio of sisters forced by circumstances to share an abode in the middling ABC sitcom "Sibs" (1991-92). She had a rare lead in the feature comedy "Jersey Girl" (1992), but it barely received distribution. Gertz fared somewhat better supporting old pros Katharine Hepburn and Anthony Quinn in the CBS telepic "This Can't Be Love" (1994). Although she had taken time off for motherhood, the actress resumed her big screen career with a fine comic turn as Bill Paxton's spoiled fiancee in the actioner "Twister" (1996). Gertz then turned up in a recurring role as a psychologist who was a potential love interest for Anthony Edwards' Dr. Mark Greene on the NBC medical drama "ER" in 1997 and garnered an Emmy nomination as a morally upright lawyer in the Fox series "Ally McBeal" in 2000. She was also seen as an unstable drug addict in the independent feature "Lip Service/Kat & Allison" (2001).
