Edie Falco Tackles Healthcare, Prescription Drug Addiction In 'Nurse Jackie'
A native of Brookyn, New York, Falco started her television career with appearances on "Homicide: Life on the Street," "Oz" and "Law & Order." She has also starred in films such as "Freedomland," "The Quiet" and "Sunshine State."
In her latest project, Falco plays Jackie, a nurse battling the insanity of everyday life in the American health care system. Jackie is great at her job, but she's also a deeply troubled woman, with looming shadows of prescription drug addiction and her lapsed Catholic faith always appearing in the background.
"Nurse Jackie" premieres Monday, June 8, at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT.
