Anyone familiar with the New York set legal dramedy “Suits,” science fiction series “Firefly” and the spin-off film “Serenity, will know the name Gina Torres.
Torres, born on April 25, 1969 in New York City, New York, is an accomplished television and film actress.
When it comes to production genres, there are very few genre the New York born actress has not worked on over the past 25 years.
Even though the fantasy series “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” and “Xena: Warrior Princess” are set in the same fictional universe, Torres played Nebula in the former series and Cleopatra latter.
Another popular series the actress appeared in “24,” “The Shield,” and “Westworld.” Although these three shows are high in dramatic content, the feel of each production is worlds apart. Despite this point, the talent required to portray the roles Torres has been seen cast is significant.
Like a lot of actresses working today, Torres has not limited herself to acting in television and film productions. She has worked on both web series and provided character voices for video games.
The work Torres did on the web series “Con Man” is not that different from that different to that which was done for television and film productions. The same argument can be made for voice over work. Voice over work is the same regardless of whether it is used in a video game, film, or a television series.
Techniques used in crafting video games are used in creating big screen and television animations.
Moreover, with Torres being cast in staged productions, she can also be classified as being a thespian. While thespians are actors and actresses, thespian is a specific piece of terminology used in association with acting on stage.
As a thespian, Torres worked on staged productions of “Face Value” (1993) and “The Best Little Whorehouse Goes Public” (1994).
A constant professional, Torres has dedicated more than 25 years of her life to the entertainment industry. Time and again, the New York born actress has proved she has the ability to work on any productions she sets her mind to.
