Biography

An intense presence, Mireille Enos worked steadily as a character actress on television while building an acclaimed theatrical career. Nominated for a Tony opposite Kathleen Turner in the Broadway revival of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" in 2005, Enos achieved under-the-radar fame for her constant string of TV guest spots, including turns on "Medium" (NBC, 2005-09; CBS, 2009-2011) and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" (NBC, 2001-07; USA Network, 2007-2011), but earned more attention for her long-running stint as twin sisters on the polygamy drama "Big Love" (HBO, 2006-2011) as well as her 2008 marriage to character actor Alan Ruck. Her mainstream breakthrough came as the introspective, ultra-focused homicide detective Sarah Linden on "The Killing" (AMC, 2011- ). The stylish, dark adaptation of the Danish murder mystery electrified pop-culture fans, with critics and audiences hailing Enos' groundbreaking performance as one of the series' most powerful assets. Serious-minded and dedicated to her craft, Enos consistently proved herself an actress of immense substance and depth.
