Abigail Spencer

Abigail is starring in two of summer’s most gripping dramas: She has an integral role in the second season of HBO’s “True Detective” as Gena, the ex-wife of Ray Velcoro (played by Colin Farrell), and she’s back for the third season of the Sundance Channel’s gothic hit “Rectify.” The Florida native has been in a number of other small screen hits, including USA’s “Suits” and AMC’s “Mad Men,” as well as E!’s cult classic “Burning Love,” a scripted comedy-web spoof on the television shows, "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette.”

She is also making a name for herself on the big screen. She recently wrapped filming on the indie drama, A Beautiful Now, which premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival in June. The film tells the story of a passionate dancer who finds herself mulling over an extreme act when she reaches a crossroads in her life. Following the success of her 2013 short film Here and Now, Abigail has reteamed with producers Josh Pence and Justin Allen to make the film, Winter Light, a modern-day revisionist Western set against the sweeping backdrop of the snow-covered Montana wilderness. Her other film credits include This Is Where I Leave You, Chasing Mavericks, Kilimanjaro, and This Means War.

The Los Angeles-based actress has a 6-year-old son, Roman.
