  • A statuesque beauty whose first love as an actor was the stage, Gina Torres immersed herself in her craft by connecting with a live audience; the symbiotic energy that it created fueled her passion for acting and encouraged her to pursue a career in film and television in addition to her multiple Broadway roles. Born the youngest of three siblings in a close-knit Cuban family in New York, Torres received early voice training at New York's High School of Music and Art. Trained in opera and jazz, the talented mezzo-soprano also sang in a gospel choir, refining her versatile voice into a finely developed instrument with remarkable range. Although regular viewers of TV fantasy no doubt recognize her from recurring roles on Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and its sister show, Xena: Warrior Princess, the talented actress and singer also appeared in such popular small-screen action and drama series as Dark Angel, Cleopatra 2525, Firefly, Alias, Any Day Now, and Angel. Married to actor Laurence Fishburne since September 2002, Torres' film roles have included 1996's Bed of Roses and The Matrix Reloaded (2003). She had a recurring role on the TV series Angel. She appeared in a number of projects including Serenity, and the Chris Rock comedy I Think I Love My Wife. In 2010 she was cast in the made-for-cable series Huge, about teens at a fat camp, and voiced Superwoman for the animated Justice League series.

QUOTES FROM Gina Torres CHARACTERS

Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
I'll take the shuttle in closer. Zoe, ship is yours. Remember, if anything happens to me, or you don't hear from me within the hour... you take this ship and you come and you rescue me.
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
I'll take the shuttle in closer. Zoe, ship is yours. Remember, if anything happens to me, or you don't hear from me within the hour, you take this ship and you come and you rescue me.
Zoe

Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds

Sweetie, we're crooks. If everything were right, we'd be in jail.
Zoe
Sir, I'd like you to take the helm, please. I need this man to tear all my clothes off.
Wash

Dr. Simon Tam
May I see her?
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
I believe you go some storytelling to do what in hell happened back there?

Zoe
Do we know if anyone was killed?
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
It's likely. I know she meant to Ad kill me 'fore the Doc put her out which how exactly does that work anyhow?
Dr. Simon Tam
It's a safeword. The people who helped me break River out had intel that River and the other subjects were being embedded with behavioral conditioning. They taught me a safeword, in case... something happened.
Kaylee Frye
I'm not sure I get it

Did the Primary Buffer Panel just fall off my gorram ship for no apparent reason?
Wash
Looks like!
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
I thought Kaylee checked our entry couplings! I have a very clear memory of it!
Wash
Yeah well if she doesn't give us some extra flow from the engine room to offset the burnthrough this landing is gonna get pretty interesting.
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
Define "Interesting"
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
Define 'Interesting'.
Wash
"Oh god, oh god, we're all gonna die?"
Wash
Oh god, oh god, we're all gonna die?
Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
This is the Captain. There's a little problem with our entry sequence so we may experience slight turbulence and then explode. Can you shave the vector?
Wash

Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds
Well just get us on the ground!
Wash
That part will happen pretty defiantly!
