Rena Sofer

Biography: Sofer made her first big impression with a brief stint on the daytime drama Loving before taking on the part of savvy record promoter Lois Cerullo on General Hospital, a role that won her a Best Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy. It was here she also met Wally Kurth, her on-screen spouse who became her real-life husband. In the mid-'90s, Sofer made the leap to prime time, guest starring in a number of series before appropriately landing a regular part on the campy evening soap Melrose Place. A string of flop series followed (Oh, Grow Up; The Chronicle; and the sitcom Coupling, which was infamously touted as the next Friends), but though the shows were short-lived, Sofer proved she had staying power. Recurring roles on the sitcom Just Shoot Me! and the dramedy Ed widened her exposure. After taking a brief hiatus to give birth to a daughter with her second husband, TV director Sanford Bookstaver, she returned to the small screen in 2006 with recurring roles in two hits, 24 andSofer made her first big impression with a brief stint on the daytime drama Loving before taking on the part of savvy record promoter Lois Cerullo on General Hospital, a role that won her a Best Supporting Actress Daytime Emmy.
