Andrea Donna “Drea” de Matteo (born January 19, 1972) is an Emmy-winning Italian-American actress, perhaps most famous for her roles as Adriana La Cerva on the HBO TV series The Sopranos and as Joey Tribbiani’s sister Gina on the NBC sitcom Joey.
After graduating from the prestigious Loyola School, she studied at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, originally hoping to become a director, not an actress. Her role in The Sopranos was one of her earliest, helping to launch her career. She has also appeared in several films including Swordfish, Deuces Wild, and the 2005 remake of John Carpenter’s 1976 action film Assault on Precinct 13. [Wiki]
