With her grace, confidence, and innate love for theater, Laura Benanti was destined to be a star. She started making waves on Broadway, earning a slew of accolades for her electric performance as an awkward young woman-turned-sexy siren in the 2007 Broadway revival of "Gypsy." While Benanti's passion for the stage was at her core, she also carved inroads on television and in film. She had a lead part on the short-lived comedy series "Starved" (FX, 2005) and played Antonio Banderas' lovelorn assistant in the musical feature "Take the Lead" (2006). Benanti also appeared on the dramedy series "Eli Stone" (ABC, 2008-09), about an attorney who suffers through surreal visions. In 2011, the spotlight was finally cast upon Benanti after she landed the lead role on the drama series "The Playboy Club" (NBC 2011), about the original Chicago nightclub in the early 1960s. Although the series was short-lived, Benanti quickly rallied with co-starring roles in the sitcom "Go On" (NBC 2012-13), "Nashville" (ABC/CMT 2012- ) and Supergirl" (CBS/CW 2015- ).
