Gina Torres (born April 25, 1969 in Manhattan, New York) is an American actress of Afro-Cuban heritage.

She later had a major role in Cleopatra 2525, though not as Cleopatra.

She has since appeared in Angel, The Shield, Boston Legal, Gossip Girl, Suits and other hit TV shows. She has also performed many voice roles, including Superwoman, Wonder Woman, Vixen, and Airachnid. Torres married Laurence Fishburne in 2002, welcomed a daughter named Delilah in 2007, and separated in 2017.
