Edith Falco was born in Long Island and attended SUNY Purchase, where she was trained in acting at the prestigious Conservatory of Theatre Arts and Film. After graduating, she lived in Manhattan, auditioning for roles.
Falco was eventually cast in her first film roles, smaller supporting parts, starting in the late 80s. Her first notable role was a supporting part in Bullets Over Broadway.
Ironically, it was in television where the conservatory-trained Falco's career first flowered. She obtained her first recurring roles in 1993, on the acclaimed police dramas Homicide: Life on the Street, as the wife of a blinded police officer, and Law & Order as a Legal Aid attorney. Next came a recurring role on the prison drama Oz, as a sympathetic corrections officer.
Falco found success in 1999, when she was cast in the HBO series The Sopranos, as Carmella, the wife of New Jersey mafia street boss Tony Soprano. "The Sopranos" gained her a great deal of visibility and praise for her exceptionally-strong dramatic skills. In 2000, Falco became the first actress in history to sweep all of the major television awards (the Emmy, the Golden Globe and the SAG Award) in one year for a dramatic role. She is also the first female actor ever to receive the Television Critics Association Award for Individual Achievement in Drama.
Interestingly, her roles have frequently put her on one side or the other of the Law-Enforcement Wars -- a defense attorney, a corrections officer, the wife of a police officer, a mob wife, a police officer (in a pilot for a television adaptation of the movie Fargo).
Falco has also worked frequently on the stage, such as her award-winning work in the play "Sideman," in "The Vagina Monologues," and in revivals of "Frankie and Johnny in the Claire de Lune" (which was hugely successful) and "'night Mother."
