Biography by Nathan Southern

Following her 1994 debut role as figure skater Oksana Baiul in the telemovie A Promise Kept: The Oksana Baiul Story, actress Monica Keena began to specialize in onscreen portrayals of wayward, vixenish young women. Parts that fell into this category included a lead turn in helmer Mo Ogrodnik's cloying, overbaked take of burgeoning female sexuality, Ripe (1996), and a recurring role on season two of Dawson's Creek (1998-1999) as teenage seductress Abby Morgan. As time rolled on, however, Keena broadened her focus and her emphasis into a diverse array of characterizations. Uniquely, in addition to appearing in low-medium budgeted indie films, she maintained a steady diet of roles in A-list Hollywood productions, including While You Were Sleeping (1995), The Devil's Advocate (1997), Orange County (2002), and Freddy vs. Jason (2003). She also played Kristen on the HBO seriocomedy Entourage and made repeat appearances as Bonnie on Grey's Anatomy. In 2007, Keena landed supporting roles in two promising direct-to-video features: the crime saga Loaded and the workplace comedy Corporate Affairs.
