Amy Acker is an American actress best known for her role as Winifred Burkle and Illyria on the television series “Angel.”

Starting her career in the early 2000s, Acker quickly garnered attention for her talent and versatility. While her breakthrough role came in the form of Winifred Burkle in “Angel,” her oeuvre extends well beyond that. She has appeared in popular television series such as “Person of Interest,” where she played the compelling character Root, and in “The Gifted,” a series based on Marvel Comics’ X-Men properties. Her film credits include “Much Ado About Nothing,” a modern retelling of Shakespeare’s classic, directed by Joss Whedon, and the horror film “Cabin in the Woods.”

Over the years, Acker has had the privilege of collaborating with a variety of talented artists and figures in the entertainment industry. Among them are Joss Whedon, creator of “Angel” and “Much Ado About Nothing”; Alexis Denisof, her co-star in both those projects; Sarah Shahi and Michael Emerson, her co-stars in “Person of Interest”; and James Marsters, another “Angel” co-star. Acker has also worked with Stephen Moyer and Jamie Chung in “The Gifted,” as well as Karl Urban in the film “The Lord of Catan.” Her collaborations extend to the realm of voice acting, where she has worked alongside Troy Baker in “Justice League Unlimited” and Neil Patrick Harris in “Justice League: Throne of Atlantis.”

Acker won the Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress on Television for her role in “Angel.” She was also nominated for a Critics’ Choice Television Award for her work on “Person of Interest.”
