Biography by Tracie Cooper [-]
Born in Connecticut and raised in New York City, Annabella Sciorra began her formal acting training at 13 years old, when she began attending the prestigious Hagen-Berghoff theatrical studios. By the time she was an adult, Sciorra was able to make a well-received film debut as an angst-ridden, Italian-American, Brooklyn-raised bride in 1989's [[True Love]]. Before long, the young actress found herself starring largely in wife and girlfriend roles opposite Hollywood A-listers including [[Tim Robbins]], [[Robin Williams]], and [[Richard Gere]]. Sciorra's supporting roles in [[Reversal of Fortune]] (1990) and [[The Hard Way]] (1991) were so successful, in fact, that they led to her breakout performance as Angie Tucci, the Italian-American woman in love with the African-American protagonist, played by [[Wesley Snipes]], in director [[Spike Lee]]'s groundbreaking urban drama [[Jungle Fever]] (1991). Sciorra's skill led to a slew of roles throughout the 1990s, most of them character parts; from [[Mr. Wonderful]] to [[The Hand That Rocks the Cradle]] to [[Romeo Is Bleeding]], the actress proved her ability, though it wouldn't be until 1997's [[Cop Land]] that Sciorra's talent as a supporting actress was showcased to her fans' satisfaction. After a powerful performance as Annie Nielson, who contemplates suicide after the death of her husband and children in [[What Dreams May Come]] (1998), Sciorra participated in a variety of moderately faring movies until 2001, when she made her debut as tough-as-nails Italian-American Gloria Trillo in the third season of [[HBO]]'s hit series [[The Sopranos]].
