Catherine Dent
Catherine Dent Catherine Dent plays "Danielle 'Danny' Sofer."

Recent years have seen Dent in two diverse, often edgy, roles that range from a sexy drug dealer in Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's 21 Grams to a na´ve flirt in Paul Schrader's Auto Focus, while her portrayal of loving diner owner Mabel in Frank Darabont's The Majestic was the antithesis of these roles. In addition to mainstream films, she's also often seen in independent, off-beat, film-festival features.

Her film career began just after graduation from the North Carolina School of Performing Arts playing Paul Newman's daughter-in-law in Nobody's Fool. She also co-starred as Ashley's Judd's sister in Tony Goldwyn's Someone Like You.

Dent received rave reviews on television for her starring role in the Emmy winning Steven Spielberg Presents: Taken. Among Dent's numerous guest appearances are roles in "The Sopranos," "Frasier," "Law & Order: SVU" and "CSI."

Theatre remains a major love in her life; she starred in the American premiere of Martin Crimp's The Country at La Jolla where she again received brilliant reviews. She has worked on and off Broadway and across the regions.

A native of Louisiana, she lives with her husband Peter and their adored pets Stella and Maggie. Like Danny, Catherine is also pregnant and her entire household is eagerly awaiting the mid-December arrival.
