Gina was born on June 10, 1962 at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California....the youngest of 5 children. She was three weeks early...and says that is why she is so impatient today! Her ethnic background is French, Russian, and Dutch, and says "I could be the Meryl Streep of the Mediterranean world!" She was a Valley girl, and a surfer chick! She grew up in Woodland Hills in the San Fernando Valley. Trying to shake that image, she moved to New York and studied at New York University, and got a degree of Bachelour of Arts.
She has studied with such prestigious teachers as Sandra Seacat, Harold Guskin, David Memet and at Circle in the Square. Her theatre credits include Camille, John Robin Baitz's The Substance of Fire, and William Mastrosimone's Nanawatai. She is a founding member of the New York based theatre group Naked Angels.
Her big screen debut was in Pretty in Pink in 1986, and soon had roles in Red Heat (1988), Cocktail (1988), Out for Justice (1991), and Sinatra (1992)which she won rave reviews for the portrayal of Nancy Sinatra. Some of her most recent roles were in The Player (1992), Showgirls (1995), Bound (1996), Touch (1997), Face/Off (1997), This World, then the Fireworks (1997), Lies and Whispers/Prague Duet (1998), Palmetto (1998), One Tough Cop (1998), Lulu on the Bridge (1999), and the TV movie Legalese (1998).
Some upcoming films include Guinevere and The Insider, and her upcoming ABC TV series Snoops.
