Jodi Lyn O'Keefe


Character: Julia Winston

Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, known to television audiences as Don Johnson’s rebellious daughter “Cassidy” in the long running CBS hit “Nash Bridges”, starred as a series regular on FOX’s critically acclaimed “Prison Break”, where she played the deliciously evil “Gretchen.” This year, she co-stars in the thriller “The Frozen Ground” opposite John Cusack, Nicholas Cage and Vanessa Hudgens. O’Keefe recently completed filming the starring role in the Lifetime Original Movie, “A Nanny’s Revenge” for Lifetime Television.

O’Keefe also starred alongside Justin Bruening in the Hallmark Channel movie, “Class” and in “Exposed” for Lifetime, which also dealt with the hot button issue of privacy. She has had guest starring and recurring roles on such shows as “Castle”, “Lost”, “Two and a Half Men”, “Big Bang Theory”, “The Finder”, “Boston Legal”, “Criminal Minds”, “CSI: NY”, and many more. On film, O’Keefe is best remembered for starring in “She’s All That” with Freddie Prinze Jr, for which she won the “Best Bad Girl” Young Hollywood Award, and a series of popular horror films including “Halloween: H20”, “Devil in the Flesh Part II” and more. She also starred with Billy Baldwin in “Red Rover” and with James Franco in “Whatever it Takes.” One of O’Keefe’s favorite experiences was starring with James Woods in a short film he wrote and directed: “Falling in Love in Pongo Ponga.”

Born in Cliffwood Beach, New Jersey, O’Keefe began her career as a model at the age of eight and later joined the cast of the daytime drama “Another World” when she began acting at 13.

O’Keefe currently resides in Los Angeles and is also a promising jewelry designer.
