Gloria Votsis was born (February 9th) and raised in a big fat Greek family in upstate New York. At the age of seventeen she went and studied abroad, spending her Senior year of High School in France. Because of this she speaks fluent French and Greek along with her native English.
Upon returning to the United States, she attended college at New York University and lived in NYC for several years. She worked in finance for a few years, paying the bills while she did local theater in New York.
Finally she quit her finance job in order to pursue her acting career full time. After working as an actor in over 40 commercials she shifted gears and started working in television. She decided that it would be best for her career to move to Los Angeles and was fortunate enough to be met almost immediately with success upon arriving.
Her movie credits include roles on indie movies such as “The Class : From Actor to Icon” and “The Education of Charlie Banks”; and horror flicks such as “Killer Movie” and “Train”.
With guest roles on major shows, Gloria Votsis has also been on television screens for the past few years. Her acting skills have been put to the test as Votsis has played very different characters on various tv shows. Her tv roles include appearances from shows such as “Sex and the City”, “NCIS”, “Dirt”, “The Philanthropist” and “CSI : NY”.
Recent roles also include starring as vampire Vanessa Buckley on ABC’s The Gates. Votsis also joined the cast of the widely popular USA Network hit series White Collar. She plays Alex Hunter, a strong, beautiful woman with a mysterious past who was brought in to further stir the pot alongside Matt Bomer’s character of Neal. She also landed the role as Sgt. Jennifer Swanson on “CSI : Miami”, sultry NYC club owner Sabrina Glick on “Blue Bloods”, and as George’s crazy (now ex) girlfriend, Zoe on ABC’s Suburgatory. Look for her to return as Alex Hunter in an upcoming episode of White Collar season 4.
