Monique Edwards BIO

Monique Edwards is an actor, singer, director and producer.

Most recently, Ms. Edwards completed filming The Virgin of Highland Park. She has appeared in episodes of "Mr. Mercedes", "Conan" and the academy award nominated film, "Lady Bird", starring Saoirse Ronan & Laurie Metcalf; written & directed by Greta Gerwig.

Following a 13-year volunteer relationship with the youth-arts organization group Voices in Harmony that mentored at-risk youth in the Los Angeles area, Monique traveled to Northern Uganda to work with youth in war-torn areas. That work was chronicled in the award-winning documentary "After Kony: Staging Hope." Subsequently, Ms. Edwards traveled to Washington D.C. with Resolve Uganda to lobby on behalf of peace in Northern Uganda.

Earlier in her career, Monique worked on many acclaimed shows such as How I Met your Mother, Rizzoli & Isles and The Social Network. She became more generally known, though, by her recurring roles as Nurse Laurel Canyon on the critically acclaimed Chicago Hope and as Teena Davis in Steven Bochco's Philly.

In 2014, Ms. Edwards had the west coast debut of her celebrated cabaret show "Swallow The Moon" at the legendary Gardenia Room in Los Angeles.

Her stage credits include "If All the Sky Were Paper" with Annette Bening, Gary Cole, Common and Laura Dern; performed at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Los Angeles, The Kennedy Center & the Lobero Theatre in Santa Barbara, CA., "My Child: Mothers of War" with Frances Fisher, Melina Kanakaredes, Mimi Rogers, Jean Smart; the award winning "Adam & Eva Maria" and "The Emerald Society". She received a nomination for Best Actress from the ADA for her work in the latter.
