Kim Raver

Biography

Film and television star Kim Raver has a brave yet vulnerable quality to her performances that has allowed her to take on a wide variety of leading roles throughout her career.

Raver returns to ABC's award-winning, critically acclaimed drama "Grey's Anatomy" for its upcoming 16th season where she will reprise her role as Dr. Teddy Altman, the former head of cardiothoracic surgery at Grey Sloan Memorial. Raver also can be seen in her recurring role on the fifth season of Showtime's "Ray Donovan," playing surgeon Dr. Bergstein.

Raver recurred on Fox's "APB" and previously on "Bones." She also reprised her series-regular role, Audrey Raines, in the Emmy®-nominated "24: Live Another Day." She was also seen on NBC's "Revolution," playing the role of Julia Neville. She is also well-known for her role as Nico Reilly on NBC's "Lipstick Jungle," from creator Candice Bushnell ("Sex and the City").
 
Raver endeared herself to critics and viewers during the five years she starred as paramedic Kim Zambrano on the police-paramedic drama, "Third Watch." She had a regular role on the children's television series "Sesame Street" from the ages of 6 to 9. Other television credits include lead roles on dramas "The Nine" and "Trinity," guest-starring roles in "The Practice," "Spin City," "Law & Order" and a recurring role on "Central Park West."

In 2010, Raver starred in the Lifetime original movie "Bond of Silence"; and in 2006, she appeared in the feature-film comedy hit "Night at the Museum," opposite Ben Stiller and Robin Williams.  Her film credits include "Prisoner" with Julian McMahon, "City Hall" with Al Pacino, "Mind the Gap" (directed by Eric Shaeffer) and "Keep Your Distance" (directed by Stu Pollard). She also starred in the 2005 Lifetime movie, "Haunting Sarah," a chilling, supernatural thriller in which she portrayed identical twins.

At the start of her career, Raver was discovered by famed director Ridley Scott during a commercial shoot. Her big break came with her Broadway debut in the play "Holiday," in which she co-starred with Laura Linney and Tony Goldwyn. In addition, Raver co-starred with David Schwimmer and John Spencer in the Williamstown production of "The Glimmer Brothers," written by Warren Leight. As a child, she was a member of off-Broadway's first all-children's theater.

A fine arts graduate of Boston University, Raver continues to study theater in New York with teacher and mentor Wynn Handman. She is fluent in French and German, the latter being a language she learned as a child from her German-born mother.

Born and raised in New York, Raver now splits her time between New York and Los Angeles.
