AMY RYAN (Jackie Flaherty) is an Academy Award nominee who has made her mark working with some of today's most prolific directors, writers and actors. Whether in film, television or on stage, Ryan continues to turn heads with chameleon-like character turns and compelling performances.

In October 2007, Ryan impressed audiences and critics alike, starring in Miramax's GONE BABY GONE. Directed by Ben Affleck, Ryan co-starred with Casey Affleck, Morgan Freeman and Ed Harris. Her sympathetic portrayal of an otherwise despicable character was recognized with Academy Award, Golden Globe and SAG Award nominations in the Best Supporting Actress categories. Additionally, Amy won Best Supporting Actress awards from the National Board of Review, the Broadcast Film Critics Association (Critic's Choice Awards), the New York Film Critics Circle, the Los Angeles Film Critics, and Film Critics Societies of Boston, Washington D.C., and San Francisco, among others.

Also in the fall of 2007, Ryan appeared opposite Ethan Hawke in BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOU'RE DEAD directed by Sidney Lumet. Her work was recognized with Best Ensemble Cast awards from the Gotham Awards, the New York Online Film Critics and the Boston Society of Film Critics, and nominated for a Broadcast Film Critics Association award.

As a follow up to two profoundly dramatic performances, Amy opted for a lighter turn, guest starring in the season four finale of NBC's "The Office” and returned for several episodes in season five. Later this year, Amy will make her highly anticipated return as Holly Flax to help wrap up Steve Carell's final season.

In October 2008, Amy returned to the big screen in Clint Eastwood's CHANGELING for Universal and Imagine Entertainment and starred opposite Angelina Jolie. In 2010, Universal and Working Title released Paul Greengrass' film GREEN ZONE, an adaptation of the bestselling novel Imperial Life In The Emerald City: Inside Iraq's Green Zone. In September 2010, Ryan starred alongside Philip Seymour Hoffman, John Ortiz and Daphne Rubin-Vega in JACK GOES BOATING, adapted from the well-received off-Broadway production written by Bob Glaudini and originally produced by LAByrinth Theater Company. The film also marked the directorial debut of Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Amy can currently be seen opposite Gabriel Byrne on the third season of the HBO drama "In Treatment.”

In 2005, Amy garnered attention for her work in CAPOTE, directed by Bennett Miller and starred Chris Cooper and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Her other film work includes DAN IN REAL LIFE directed by Peter Hedges, WAR OF THE WORLDS directed by Steven Spielberg, KEANE directed by Lodge Kerrigan and YOU CAN COUNT ON ME, directed by Kenneth Lonergan, LOOKING FOR COMEDY IN THE MUSLIM WORLD, directed by Albert Brooks and THE MISSING PERSON by writer/director Noah Buschel.

In addition to her film credits, Amy has achieved major success on the Broadway stage. In 2000, she was nominated for her first Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play, for Uncle Vanya. In 2005, she astounded critics with her moving portrayal of ‘Stella' in A Streetcar Named Desire. Directed by Edward Hall, and starring opposite John C. Reilly, Amy was nominated for her second Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play. She also starred in Neil LaBute's The Distance From Here in London's West End.

Amy's television credits are extensive, with over 30 guest star performances and eight series regular or recurring roles on primetime television shows. Most notably, she starred for five seasons as Officer Beatrice ‘Beadie' Russell in HBO's critically acclaimed series, "The Wire.”

Amy was raised in Queens, New York where she attended the High School of the Performing Arts. She resides in New York City.
