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.
