Charlotte Ross stars in "Bounce" on VH1 as the shrewd squad manager, Olivia. Ross was also recently seen in the movie "Drive Angry," alongside Nicolas Cage, Amber Heard and William Fichtner, as Candy.

Charlotte Ross was born and raised in Winnetka, Illinois, to Princeton and Harvard grads. It was expected that Charlotte would follow in her parent's footsteps and continue in the field of education. However, falling in love with acting in the tender years of her childhood, Charlotte had other plans in mind and decided at an early age she would follow the Hollywood route instead.

From that moment on, Charlotte studied with anyone and everyone she possibly could to polish and sharpen her craft. She worked at Second City and the Goodman Theater in Chicago and earned an early living with numerous commercial and modeling gigs. Then a month after graduating from the famous New Trier High School, Charlotte made the move to Los Angeles where she quickly landed her first role in Hollywood as Eve Donovan on "Days of Our Lives," a role that later earned her two Emmy Nominations. After a wonderful four years on the infamous soap, she went on to pursue other roles. Charlotte then quickly jumped into starring in numerous TV movies including, "Kiss So Deadly," "Kidnapped in Paradise," "Fall into Darkness" and "She Says She's Innocent," to name a few. She also landed the lead in Aaron Spelling's "The Heights" which earned a gold record for her and the cast's singing.

Since then Charlotte has remained a prominent figure in the entertainment industry, starring in TV series such as CBS's comedy "The Five Mrs. Buchanans" by Marc Cherry, FOX's "Mommie and Me" with Pauly Shore, NBC's "ER" and later their family drama "Trinity." She also starred in Showtime's critically acclaimed "Beggars and Choosers" as Lorri Valpone, a role the Los Angeles Times said made Charlotte an "Emmy Shoe-in."

Before "Beggars and Choosers" was officially canceled after two seasons, Charlotte was asked to consider replacing Kim Delany on the Emmy Award winning show "NYPD Blue." Charlotte gratefully jumped at the opportunity and made her debut on the ever successful cop drama as the tough talking Irish Detective, Connie McDowell. Again, the media's response to Charlotte echoed that of "Beggars and Choosers," saying "If NYPD Blue still had the popularity it once had, Charlotte would have a shelf of Emmys."

At the end of her fifth season as Detective Connie McDowell on "NYPD Blue," Charlotte was 8 months pregnant with her first child and eager to take a break from acting to just be a mom. After so many years of being so grateful for work, she craved a break and today still says that time off was the best decision she ever made.

Two years after the birth of her beautiful little boy, Max, Charlotte went back to work starring in the re-tooled second season of "Jake in Progress," Lifetime's Nora Roberts film, "Montana Sky," "Christmas in Paradise," and "Law & Order" as the memorable character Anne Coltour, which once again generated Emmy buzz.

Today Charlotte stays busy with work and in addition to playing Quinn's uptight, Escada-wearing mother, Judy Fabray on the hit show, "Glee," she continues to challenge and reinvent herself for a diverse array of roles. Whether it be opposite Ray Liotta in the movie "Street Kings 2: Motor City" or showing off her athleticism as the first female umpire in professional baseball in the upcoming and highly anticipated short film, "The Umpire," Charlotte continues to captivate audiences and impress critics with her unbelievable range as an actress.

A successful actress for over two decades, a proud single mom to her now 6-year-old son, Max, a huge animal rights activist (widely known for the PETA "I'd rather go naked…" campaign) and a fitness fanatic, Charlotte is fortunate to be able to do what she loves. Once a Winnetka gal with a love of finding the truth on screen, Charlotte is now living her dream and couldn't be in a happier place in her life.
