and Dianne Weist. Lastly, Forbes is also starring in the dark, award-winning Canadian series "Durham County" which airs on the Movie Network and Movie Central. She plays Dr. Penelope Verrity, a forensic psychiatrist who quickly develops a bond with detective Mike Sweeney, played by Hugh Dillon.

Forbes began her career in the long-running CBS daytime soap opera, "The Guiding Light," which earned her a daytime Emmy nomination. After years of various theater and television roles, it was in the 90s that Forbes appeared in such independent films as "Kalifornia," starring opposite Brad Pitt and David Duchovny, and "Swimming with Sharks" with Kevin Spacey, to name a couple. In 1996, Forbes was asked to join the award-winning series "Homicide: Life on the Street," having met Tom Fontana that same year when she starred opposite Stockard Channing in the television movie, "The Prosecutors."

Forbes then went on to do the critically hailed yet controversial and short-lived series "Wonderland" for ABC as well as "Johnson County War," an epic western filmed for the Hallmark Channel. Terribly fond of working in the UK, she took on other series roles there including a three-year stint on the lauded BBC television series "Messiah," opposite Ken Stott, and a recurring role on the BBC1 drama "Walking the Dead." She is also a veteran of the second season of FOX's "24," playing Lynn Kresge.

In 2005, Forbes received rave reviews when she starred as Admiral Helena Cain in the intelligent and politically charged "Battlestar Galactica." In addition to her extensive television work, Forbes has continued to appear in such independent films as "Dandelion," which was received admirably at Sundance.

When not working, Forbes makes her home in Los Angeles and London.
