MONIQUE GABRIELA CURNEN – Bio
Monique Gabriela Curnen is an actor and producer with a string of critical and commercial successes including Ryan Fleck’s HALF NELSON, Christopher Nolan's THE DARK KNIGHT, Steven Soderbergh's CONTAGION; and Joshua Marston's MARIA FULL OF GRACE. In television, Monique was a series regular on Noah Hawley’s dark comedic drama "The Unusuals," the FOX drama “Lie to Me" opposite Tim Roth, as well as the NBC drama "Taken," and the highly acclaimed final season of the hit Starz show “Power.” She has recurred on the series “Sons of Anarchy,” “The Following,” “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” and “Elementary.” She will next be seen opposite Hilary Swank in the highly anticipated series “Away” for Netflix. She worked Off-Off Broadway in the New York Fringe Festival and at The Clemente, Off-Broadway in The Barrow Group’s “Pentecost,” and made her Goodman Theatre debut in the world premiere of José Rivera’s new play “Another Word For Beauty.”
While working with Warrington Hudlin at the Black Filmmaker Foundation, Curnen produced two interactive short films, “Weapons of Misdirection” and “Where My Ladies At?” She also independently produced the short films “Absent” and “Noël.” “Absent” examines the ripple effects of gun violence in a young teen’s life, and “Noël” looks at a moment of intimacy and connection that arises between strangers caught in an emergency room. “Noël” sold to ShortsHD. Curnen was a Film Independent Fast Track and Producing Lab Fellow for the feature I’M NOT DOWN, and a Tribeca All Access Alum for the film WHITE. Her current focus is creating stories that address social issues through characters who illustrate the richness and complexity of our times.
