Robin Tunney stars as Teresa Lisbon on CBS's "The Mentalist." Robin Tunney also starred as Veronica Donovan on the first season of FOX's "Prison Break."

Tunney's versatility has not only landed her roles alongside such actors as Michael Douglas, Ed Harris, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Kyra Sedgwick, but has also made her a "treasured jewel" in the independent film world. With each edgy, powerful, comedic and sometimes quirky performance, Tunney is defining herself as one of Hollywood's leading young actresses.

Most recently, Tunney starred in the feature film "Runaway," which premiered at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival.

Also in 2004, Tunney starred in the feature films "Shadow of Fear" and "In Control of All Things," based on the famous Zodiac Killer case.

One of Tunney's richest and most challenging roles was that of "Marcy," a young woman with Tourette Syndrome, in Bob Gosse's critically acclaimed independent film "Niagara, Niagara." Tunney's performance earned her the Best Actress-Cuppa Volpe at the 1997 Venice Film Festival, as well as a 1999 Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Female Lead.

Tunney's additional feature credits include the comedy "The In-Laws" starring Michael Douglas and Albert Brooks; Alan Rudolph's "The Secret Lives of Dentists"; the 2002 Sundance Film Festival hit "Cherish" opposite Tim Blake Nelson; the mountain-climbing adventure film "Vertical Limit"; the apocalyptic thriller "End of Days" starring Arnold Schwarzenegger; "The Craft," for which she and Fairuza Balk won an MTV Movie Award; "Encino Man" opposite Brendan Fraser; and "Julian Po" opposite Christian Slater.
