"Deanne Bray is a fresh new face who lights up the screen in every scene she's in.
Keep your 'eye' on her."
--New York Post
"A cut above... Deanne Bray is a singular delight."
"Deanne Bray is about as likable a performer as you can find."
—The Buffalo News
These are just a few of the sparkling comments national critics have used to describe the work of dynamic actress Deanne Bray. It's the kind of response Ms. Bray has received from critics and fans alike since she burst onto the scene with her critically acclaimed starring role as Sue Thomas in the award winning television series Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye. She then brought a new legion of fans to her work when she was a regular actress on the NBC hit show Heroes where she played the role of 'hero' Emma Coolidge. Heroes director SJ Clarkson said about working with Deanne, "She's spectacular. Her natural instincts are right on when she performs." Heroes Executive Producer Dennis Hammer says, "She's an extraordinary actress. Her talent and heart have made us all proud."
Ms. Bray is now known within the Hollywood industry and beyond as someone who brings honesty, depth, and her own unique charm to her growing list of roles. She has also done work for Disney, Paramount, HBO, Sony, and NBC as well as having been a stalwart performer at the prestigious Deafwest Theatre and CTG Theater Group, earning accolades and awards for her performances.
For Deanne working in Hollywood is a bit like coming home. As a little girl she grew up riding her bike around studio lots while her single father worked as a lighting technician. Little did she know that she'd end up being in front of the camera.
Perhaps Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye creator, writer and executive producer Dave Alan Johnson best summed up the experience of working with Deanne Bray when he said, "Deanne is simply the best actress and nicest person I've worked with in my twenty years of writing, producing and directing in Hollywood. She's one of a kind and no one should ever put limits on what she can do. I can't wait to see what she does next."
