Catherine Dent

Officer Danielle "Danny" Sofer

Catherine Dent returns as "Officer Danielle 'Danny' Sofer." Danny receives good news professionally while pressures surrounding the father of her baby continue to mount.

Career Highlights

Dent has gained a reputation within the Hollywood community as an actress who is at her best when undertaking challenging, diverse and often edgy characters that range from a sexy drug dealer in Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s 21 Grams to a naïve flirt in Paul Schrader’s Auto Focus, while her loving diner owner “Mabel” in Frank Darabont’s The Majestic was the antithesis of these roles. In addition to mainstream films, she can also be seen in numerous 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; and she also co-starred as Ashley Judd’s sister in Tony Goldwyn’s Someone Like You.

She received rave reviews on television for her starring role in the Emmy® winning Steven Spielberg Presents Taken. Among numerous guest star appearances are The Sopranos, 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. During the most recent hiatus she starred in Law & Order and a Lifetime Original, Made-For-Television Movie, The Bad Son. A native of Louisiana, Dent lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their son.
