From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Michelle Hurd is an African-American stage, film and television actress.

Born on December 21, 1966, Hurd is the daughter of actor Hugh Hurd. She graduated from Boston University in 1988 and soon after performed for Great Britain's National Theatre. Her Broadway credits include Othello, Hamlet, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. She won several awards, including the Robbie Award and the California Theatre Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama.

She has also appeared in several movies, including Random Hearts and Personals.

After working in television roles, including The Cosby Mysteries, New York Undercover and The Practice, she appeared on a 1997 episode of Law & Order. Her turn as a corrupt FBI informant caught the attention of L&O producer Dick Wolf, who two years later cast her in the spinoff Law & Order: Special Victims Unit as Det. Monique Jeffries. She co-starred with Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay for two seasons before leaving the series in 2000. She made a return cameo on the show in 2001.

Recent television roles include The O.C. and According to Jim.
