Ivana Milicevic stars in "Banshee" on Cinemax as Carrie Hopewell, a notorious jewel thief who now lives in Banshee under an assumed identity with her new family, who know nothing of her past.

Ivana Milicevic was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia (part of Yugoslavia at that time), into an ethnic Croatian family of Tonka and Damir Milicevic. The family emigrated to the United States, and young Milicevic was raised in Michigan. In 1992, Milicevic graduated from high school and moved to Los Angeles in pursuit of an acting career. She was a struggling stand-up comedienne, trying to win over crowds with her stories of the modeling business.

In 1996, she made her film debut under the name Ivana Marina with a one-line role as a former girlfriend of Tom Cruise in "Jerry Maguire" (1996). In 1997, she followed up with a guest role on NBC's "Seinfeld" (1990) and made guest appearances on several other television shows. She played bit parts in "Vanilla Sky" (2001) and "Love Actually" (2003), among her many other cameo appearances. Milicevic capitalized on her experience as a comedienne in a supporting role as Russian model Roxana Milla Slasnikova in the romantic comedy "Head Over Heels" (2001). She appeared as a lookalike of Uma Thurma, opposite Ben Affleck, trying to fool him into thinking she was Uma, in "Paycheck" (2003). In a departure from her one-dimensional roles, Milicevic showed her dramatic talent in a supporting role as Milla Yugorsky in the dark and gritty drama "Running Scared" (2006).

In 2006, she started a recurring role on the CBS series "Love Monkey" and made a big step forward in her career appearing as Valenka, one of three Bond girls in "Casino Royale" (2006), for which she did most of her scenes on locations in Prague and London. She more recently appeared in the Lionsgate film "Witless Protection," opposite Larry the Cable Guy and Jenny McCarthy, the indie "Battle in Seattle," alongside André Benjamin and Woody Harrelson, and the comedy "What's Your Number?" starring Anna Faris.

On television, she recently was seen in the ABC miniseries "Fallen" and episodes of "Charlie's Angels," "Hawaii Five-0," "Eastwick," "Royal Pains," "Without a Trace," "Pushing Daisies," "House MD," "Chuck" and "Ugly Betty."

She currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
