Tina Benko is an exciting and versatile actress with an incredible dramatic range. She has appeared recently as 3 completely different character-types and was excellent in all of them.
Tina Benko was Ann Putnam in The Crucible at Broadway’s Walter Kerr Theater. She was excellent as the semi hysterical housewife; totally convinced that her many miscarriages were the result of witchcraft. She is willing to accuse the midwife, knowing full well that a conviction for witchcraft means death.
In a more modern role she was in The Starz Network’s Flesh and Bone as the beautiful former ballerina Jessica who is embezzling funds from the ballet company to support a Manhattan lifestyle well beyond her means. This leads her into making a deal with the devil, in the form of a Russian mobster. Despite being petrified of her new arrangement, Jessica maintains the facade of poise and elegance that is a ballerina’s trademark.
In Showtime’s Brotherhood she is the slutty girlfriend of gangster Michael Caffee (excellently played by Jason Isaacs). Complete with skintight outfits and a low class Rhode Island accent, this character is the polar opposite of the ice cold, upper class, ex-ballerina she plays on Flesh and Bone.
With her striking blue eyes and superb acting skills, the audience is immediately drawn to Tina Benko whenever she is on Stage of Screen. She is also a very hard working actor with a huge resume of films, T.V. Shows and movies. We look forward to seeing even more of her work in the future.
