Wanda De Jesus

Biography

Husky voiced Hispanic-American character actress Wanda De Jesus began appearing onscreen from the late '80s onward, with a particularly strong emphasis on action-oriented material. Early roles included parts in the Anthony Edwards-headlined action comedy Downtown (1989), the futuristic police saga Robocop 2 (1990), and Charles Burnett's cop drama The Glass Shield (1994). De Jesus is perhaps best known, however, as Graciella Rivers, a Latino woman still enraged over the murder of her sister, in the haunting Clint Eastwood procedural Blood Work (2002). She followed that up with a recurring role as Detective Adell Sevilla on the popular crime show CSI: Miami (from 2002-2003), and a prominent role in the Mafia-themed crime thriller Illegal Tender (2007), directed by Franc Reyes. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
