One of the brightest acting talents to emerge in recent years, MAURA TIERNEY
(Caroline), is currently gracing television screens every week on the top-rated NBC series
ER, for which she received her first Emmy Award nomination. Tierney has successfully
managed to juggle both television and film careers.
Tierney stars in New Line Cinema's recently released comedy Semi-Pro, opposite
Will Ferrell and Woody Harrelson. Tierney can also be seen in the upcoming films The
Go-Getter with Zooey Deschanel, which premiered at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival,
and Finding Amanda with Matthew Broderick. Last summer, she appeared on the big
screen in a film for Magnolia Pictures called Diggers, in which she starred opposite Paul
Rudd, Ken Marino, Josh Hamilton, Ron Eldard, Lauren Ambrose and Sarah Paulson,
directed by Katherine Dieckmann.
Tierney has starred in such films as 20th Century Fox's comedy Welcome to
Mooseport, opposite Ray Romano and Gene Hackman; Instinct, opposite Sir Anthony
Hopkins and Cuba Gooding Jr.; and DreamWorks' hugely successful Forces of Nature,
with Ben Affleck and Sandra Bullock. Additional film credits include Primal Fear, The
Temp, White Sands, Oxygen and Scotland, Pa.
She earned critical praise for her role in Primary Colors as well as for her work
opposite Jim Carrey in the smash hit Liar Liar. Tierney also appeared in the Christopher
Nolan-directed film Insomnia, opposite Al Pacino, Hilary Swank and Robin Williams.
In 2006, Tierney starred in the off-Broadway production of Neil LaBute's Some
Girl(s) at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. She joined a cast that also included Eric
McCormack, Fran Drescher, Judy Reyes and Brooke Smith.
Prior to joining the cast of ER, Tierney spent four years on the critically
acclaimed NBC series NewsRadio.
Born and raised in Boston, she currently divides her time between Los Angeles
and New York.
