Actress

Edith Falco (born July 5, 1963) is an American television and film actress.

Falco was born in Brooklyn, New York to Frank Falco (an Italian American former commercial artist, who now works as a sculptor) and Judith Anderson (a Swedish American former actress); her siblings are Joseph, Paul, and Ruth. She was raised in Northport, on Long Island, graduating from Northport High School in 1981 after playing Eliza Doolittle in a production of My Fair Lady. She attended SUNY Purchase.

Falco is the only actress to have received a Golden Globe, an Emmy, and a SAG Award in the same year, for her performance as Carmela Soprano in the television series The Sopranos. Prior to that, she was a regular performer on Oz. She has also had recurring roles on Law & Order and Homicide: Life on the Street.

In the 2004 presidential election, Falco emerged on the political scene as a spokeswoman for M.O.B. (Mothers Opposing Bush). She endorsed Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry.

She is a survivor of breast cancer, and in December of 2004 she adopted a son, named Anderson Falco ("Anderson" is for Edie's mother's maiden name).

She has won three Emmys, two Golden Globes and three Screen Actors Guild Awards.
