Judy Reyes portrays the caring but slightly jaded nurse Carla Espinosa on NBC's comedy series "Scrubs."
"I really admire Carla â€“ she's smart and sassy and a very good nurse," says Reyes. "I like that she remains confident and unapologetic in a world where nurses don't receive the same respect as doctors."
Reyes grew up in the Bronx and became interested in acting while attending Hunter College in Manhattan. In 1992, she landed her first major acting role in the independent feature film "Jack and His Friends" opposite Sam Rockwell, and went on to perform extensively in the theater. She is particularly proud of her work with the Labyrinth Theatre Company, a multi-cultural acting space in Manhattan where she is a founding member and has served as both actor and producer on numerous productions over the past 10 years.
Reyes' television credits include several guest appearances as Tina on "Oz," a role she reprises in the upcoming season of the gritty cable series. Additionally, she appeared in "The Sopranos" and "100 Centre Street." She also starred in several television movies, including "John Sanford's Mind Prey" (with Eriq La Salle of NBC's "ER") and "The Prosecutors."
Among Reyes' feature-film credits are "Bringing Out the Dead" with Nicolas Cage and the independent film "Went to Coney Island on a Mission from God, Be Back at Five." She will also appear in the upcoming film "Washington Heights." Additionally, Reyes acted in and co-produced (with her husband) "Taino," a short film which will be screened at the upcoming Los Angeles Latino Film Festival and is expected to be shown on a premier cable channel this summer.
Reyes lives in New York with her husband, writer/director Edwin M. Figueroa. In addition to acting, Reyes looks forward to producing more independent films. Her birthday is November 5.
