CHRISTINE LAHTI (Detective Reyes) earned her first Oscar® nomination for 1985's Swing Shift, then took the statue home 10 years later as a first-time director for her short film Lieberman in Love. In 1998, after multiple nominations, Lahti won both the Emmy® and her second Golden Globe Award (the TV movie No Place Like Home was the first) for her portrayal of Dr. Kathryn Austin on Chicago Hope. Three years later her feature film directorial debut My First Mister opened the 2001 Sundance Film Festival. 

Most recently Lahti starred in the West Coast premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Wendy Wasserstein's final play "Third” at the Geffen Playhouse. The play also marked her third collaboration with the late playwright – the first being "The Heidi Chronicles” on Broadway in 1989 and An American Daughter for Lifetime in 2000. Some of her film credits include Sidney Lumet's Running on Empty, for which she received the 1998 LA Film Critics Award as well as a Golden Globe nomination; Leaving Normal, directed by Ed Zwick; The Doctor, with William Hurt; Bill Forsyth's Housekeeping, which was voted one of the 20 best films of 1987 by many of America's film critics; Whose Life is it Anyway?; and …And Justice for All. Lahti is seen in the feature Yonkers Joe alongside Chazz Palminteri.

Lahti's television credits include a starring role on the critically acclaimed series Jack and Bobby, for which she received both SAG and Golden Globe nominations, and numerous television movies including Amerika (Emmy® & Golden Globe nomination), Showtime's Out of Ashes, The Pilot's Wife, Open House, and The Book of Ruth, among others. A highly esteemed stage actress, Ms. Lahti starred in "Three Hotels,” co-starring with Richard Dreyfuss at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. This presentation was a reprisal of her successful run in the play which premiered at New York's Circle Rep. Theater. She also received a Drama Desk nomination for her role. 

Additional theatre credits include, Jules Feiffer's "Little Murders,” for which she received an Obie Award; Michael Weller's "Loose Ends” and Noel Coward's "Present Laughter” with George C. Scott, both at the Circle in the Square; the successful off-Broadway revivals of John Guare's "Landscape of a Body” and Clifford Odet's "The Country Girl” with Hal Holbrook; David Mamet's "The Woods” at the Public Theater, for which she received a Theater World Award; Ted Tally's "Hooters” at Playwrights Horizons; and Steve Tisch's "Division Street” on Broadway.
