Actress Romy Rosemont has the face that is instantly familiar. Lately she is being recognized as Finn's mom, Carole Hudson, on Fox's Emmy®-nominated hit series "Glee."
Rosemont is proud of her reputation as a gifted go-to character actress and has numerous film and television credits on her impressive resume. She was recently featured alongside Catherine Keener in "Please Give" and also appeared with Jennifer Aniston in director/writer Nicole Holofcenter's "Friends with Money." Rosemont has had recurring roles on "C.S.I.," "Brothers & Sisters," "Prison Break" and "Swing Town." She has guest-starred on countless television series including "Private Practice," "HawthoRNe," "Grey's Anatomy," "Nip/Tuck" and "Boston Legal."
One of Rosemont's more interesting entertainment assignments involved being part of Romy and Rusty - Movie Critics. For seven years, she and her friend, actress Rusty Schwimmer, filmed movie review segments on a show for Japan's Tokyo TV sponsored by luxury skin care brand Shiseido. The women were Japan's equivalent of Siskel & Ebert. The duo reprises their popular critiques each year to handicap the Oscar race for Japan.
Born in New York, Rosemont moved with her family to Los Angeles when she was nine years old. She spent much of her time growing up on set with her father, Norman Rosemont, an Emmy® Award winning producer. During the summers, Rosemont worked as a production assistant, stand-in, extra, costumer and a number of other jobs on her dad's productions. Her time behind-the-scenes has given Rosemont a unique perspective on the industry and respect for the entire filmmaking process.
Rosemont attended Northwestern University where she studied theater and developed a love of improv. She was the first woman to direct the university's popular comedy improv The Meow Show. After graduation, Rosemont worked as an assistant at both ICM and CAA, two of the entertainment industry's powerhouse agencies, before starting her own personal assistant business.
Although Rosemont made her feature film debut in the horror picture "Bad Dreams," it wasn't until she had a role in "My Life," starring Nicole Kidman, that she made the decision that she would pursue a career in acting.
Rosemont is married to another of the industry's finest character actors, Stephen Root. The two have been together for 10 years and married in 2008. She is extremely proud of her 21 year-old stepson talented drummer Cody, who is currently on tour with the punk band "Drive A," and also of her other two "children," Bazooka Joe, the photogenic dog she rescued five years ago and Perdy, the equally photogenic but decidedly undisciplined pup she and her husband recently rescued.
Rosemont can often be found in the kitchen baking her famous cookies, banana bread or biscotti. She is active with the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and recently completed her second Southern California event in Santa Barbara in 2011.
