After moving to Los Angeles, Gunn continued to garner acclaim in the American premiere of "Hysteria" directed by Phyllida Lloyd at the Mark Taper Forum, and went on to star as Isabella in "Measure for Measure" at the Ahmanson Theatre, helmed by famed director Sir Peter Hall. While living in Los Angeles, New York beckoned and Gunn was brought east to make her Broadway debut opposite Roger Rees in "The Rehearsal" at the Roundabout Theater.

In television, Gunn has starred in the HBO critically acclaimed series "Deadwood" as Martha Bullock and has had recurring roles on David E.

Her television film credits include starring roles in television movies alongside Jennifer Beals, Dennis Franz and Tom Selleck.

Gunn's first major film role was in the independent feature "Without Evidence" with Angelina Jolie, directed by Gil Dennis. She also starred alongside Gary Oldman and Mary Steenburgen in the dark comedy "Nobody's Baby," directed by David Seltzer, which had its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in 2001. She returned home to do another indie movie aptly titled "Santa Fe" with Lolita Davidovich and written by Tony Award-winner Mark Medoff. She was also seen in the blockbuster Tony Scott film, "Enemy of the State," appearing opposite Jon Voight.



Next up for Gunn is the world premiere of the Donald Margulies play "Time Stands Still" at the Geffen Theater in Los Angeles, creating the leading role of photo journalist Sarah Goodwin.
