Lorraine Bracco

lorraine bracco
born in Brooklyn, Bracco first found success as a fashion model on the runways of Paris in the 1970s. She had just a handful of European film appearances on her résumé when she embarked on her Hollywood career. With her handsome beauty and pronounced Noo Yawk accent, the actress often portrayed tough, long-suffering wives (Someone to Watch Over Me, her flashy, Oscar-nominated turn in Goodfellas). In 1999, she accepted her first regular TV role on The Sopranos, earning multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nods — and legions of new fans — for her layered portrayal of a mobster’s psychiatrist. Although the acclaimed series ended in 2007, she continued to work on the small screen and joined the cast of the TNT police procedural Rizzoli & Isles in 2010. In real life, Bracco owns a wine label, a business decision she credits to living in France for 10 years.
