Lana Parrilla

Lana Parrilla was born in Brooklyn, New York, on July 15, 1977. Her mother is an Italian painter/artist and her Puerto Rican father was a professional baseball player. After graduating from high school, she moved to Los Angeles to study acting and anthropology. She made her film debut in the sci-fi horror film, "Spiders" before joining the cast of "Spin City" in a recurring role during the 2000-2001 season.  She lives in Los Angeles with her two Bengal cats, Stanley and Lenny.

Lana won an Imagen Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her role as paramedic Teresa Ortiz.

Teresa Ortiz promised her dying mother that, for the rest of her life, she would do whatever it takes to save people's lives.   She did this, first, as a paramedic, and then decided to enter the police academy.  Practically perfect, she has one major flaw - she has fallen in love with a married man, Detective Joel Stevens.

Lana describes Teresa:

"She's a very loving person, but she has her past that has not yet been established, that we will soon find out in the upcoming episodes. She's a street- smart girl. She has a strong affinity for people."
