Penny Johnson Jerald stars in "Castle" on ABC as NYPD Captain Victoria Gates.

Penny Johnson Jerald is a nasty piece of work — she's from heaven, hell on wheels, powerful, and just plain talented. Best known as the scheming and conniving Sherry Palmer on "24," Jerald won much critical acclaim for the role and made the list of television's 50 Most Powerful Divas.

Jerald completed two seasons as Dean Etwood on ABC's "October Road," recurred on the sitcom "Eve," played Condoleezza Rice on ABC's "Path to 9/11," was Maxine on "House of Payne," and has had numerous other roles on such shows as "Bones," "Law & Order" and "NCIS," among others. She was nominated for both a Cable Ace Award and an NAACP Image Award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series as quick witted assistant Beverly on "The Larry Sanders Show." She also spent four seasons on "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine" as Captain Kasidy Yates — Commander Sisko's love interest and then loving bride — and is proud to have a huge Trekkie following.

When not shooting film or television, Jerald works side by side with her husband, Gralin, for the couple's theater group, OCTC (Outreach Christian Theatre Company), directing plays, teaching classes, producing vocals in her recording studio, Behind The World Productions, or imparting some of her knowledge to those who seek it. She continues to do public speaking engagements, personal appearances and to help charities close to her heart.



A veteran theater actress, Jerald most recently won critical acclaim for her portrayal of Rose in Chicago's Goodman Theatre production of Regina Taylor's "Trinity River Plays." She has directed over 45 plays, including "The Tinker," "A Very L.A. L.A. Christmas Carol," "Chains of Freedom," "Just in Time," "The Descent from the Cross: A Living Portrait," "A Christmas Carol," "Heaven's Gates/Hell's Flames," "Zodiocracy," "Loving the Beloved," "The Christmas Club," "Gold," "Frankincense," "Christmas Tree Ornaments," "Myrrh," "A Question of Innocence/The People Versus Christ," "The Windows of Christmas," "A Stranger in Bethlehem," "The Vagina Monologues" and "Moist!" Theater performance credits include her one-woman show, "Not My Child," "Our Country's Good," "The Debutante Ball," "The Night of the Assassin," "The Two Sisters," "The Vault" and "The Derelict."
