Cathy DeBuono

Cathy DeBuono is a rare actress in Hollywood.

While many actresses remain in the closet, or at least “guarded” about their personal lives, she is not only out and proud, but is actively seeking out lesbian roles.

The daughter of a New York cop, Cathy was a gifted natural athlete and a heavily recruited volleyball player. She attended the University of Kentucky on a full athletic scholarship, and was in training for the US Olympic team when a knee injury ended her career.

While in college, Cathy met Ashley Judd who cast her in a school play and encouraged Cathy to pursue acting – which she did, with gusto. In 1992, She auditioned for a place in the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. She graduated from AADA in 1994 and headed for Los Angeles where she has been cast in roles on television shows like The Pretender, Jenny, Ex’s and Oh’s, 3Way and Martial Law as well as recurring roles on Chicago Hope and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. She has also been cast in numerous films such as Out at the Wedding, as well as the short film Tremble & Spark, and the hotly anticipated feature film And Then Came Lola, both due out this summer.

A Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), Cathy earned her Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University in 2003. She’s parlayed her clinical and professional experience into the video blog What’s YOUR Problem?, which was nominated for LOGO’s 2007 NEW NOW NEXT AWARDS for Best. Lesbian. Vlog. Ever. In the vlog, Cathy addresses concerns submitted by her viewers.

Her most recent project, We Have To Stop Now is a romantic comedy in which Cathy plays a therapist who is in therapy herself.  After a successful first season, season two is now in pre-development.
