Christina Cox currently appears as Mayor Celia Castle on CW’s hit series ARROW and is perhaps best known as Jen Crane in ABC’s astronaut drama series DEFYING GRAVITY as well as Vicki Nelson in the supernatural procedural BLOOD TIES. A native of the Toronto area, Christina Cox trained as a modern dancer and actress. After leaving theatre school her professional success began quickly with her Gemini nominated series lead performance as Angie Ramirez in Rysher Entertainment’s FX: THE SERIES. Christina then went on to earn much critical praise for the award winning romantic comedy BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE and appeared opposite Vin Diesel in Universal Pictures THE CHRONICLES OF RIDDICK as the intensely physical mercenary Eve Logan.
On completion of DEFYING GRAVITY, Christina went from zero gravity space walk to a stroll on the dark side, guest starring as Zoey Kruger on the 4th season of Showtime’s DEXTER. In addition she has guest starred on NCIS, CASTLE, THE MENTALIST, 24, CSI and a recurring role COMBAT HOSPITAL to name a few.
As a Co-Executive Producer, Christina recently revisited NIKKI & NORA: “the most watched never aired pilot in history” which was given a second life as a crowd funded web series to be released this fall through Tello Films and heads back to New Orleans this spring for Season Two.
In addition to dance, Christina competed in gymnastics, martial arts, track and field as well as fencing and boxing. She is an avid yoga practitioner and self-confessed design and renovation junkie. She currently shares her time between Los Angeles and Vancouver.
