On the crime drama Wicked City, two LA detectives – Jack Roth (Jeremy Sisto) and Paco Contreras (Gabriel Luna) – are tracking down serial killer Kent Grainger (Ed Westwick). Kent tends to prey on young, vulnerable actresses. But then he meets Betty Beaumont, a pretty, single mom who works as a nurse and who just happens to enjoy a sadistic sex life.
Nurse Betty is portrayed by Erika Christensen. She’s best known for her role as Julia Braverman-Graham on Parenthood. Prior to that, she appeared on several TV shows including The Practice, Frasier, 3rd Rock from the Sun, Touched by an Angel, among others. Christensen is also recognized for her roles in the films Traffic (Caroline Wakefield), The Banger Sisters (Hannah Kingsley), and (also very wicked) Swimfan. Wicked City airs Tuesdays at 10pm on ABC.
