She was nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series for playing Gloria Trillo in The Sopranos (since 2001–04).

Early life

Sciorra was born in Brooklyn, New York, to a fashion stylist mother and a veterinarian father. Her parents are Italian immigrants (her father is from the Southern Italian region of Abruzzo, while her mother is from Formia, a comune in the province of Latina, in the Central Italian region of Lazio). Sciorra studied dance as a child, and later took drama lessons at the Herbert Berghof Studio and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.[4]

Career

Sciorra made her feature film debut with a starring role in the 1989 comedy True Love. She was praised by critics, with Janet Maslin of The New York Times commenting: “Ms. Sciorra, with her gentle beauty and her hard-as-nails negotiating style, perfectly captures the mood of the film, and makes Donna fully and touchingly drawn”. Further, the performance earned her a nomination for the Independent Spirit Award for Best Female Lead.

Various film roles came next, including the Richard Gere thriller Internal Affairs, the Robin Williams comedy Cadillac Man, and the acclaimed drama Reversal of Fortune (since 1990). The latter received three Academy Award nominations.

Personal life

Sciorra was married to actor Joe Petruzzi from 1989 to 1993. In 2004, she began a relationship with Bobby Cannavale which lasted for three years; the pair split up since 2007.

In October 2017, Sciorra leveled allegations of rape against the film producer Harvey Weinstein. In an article published by The New Yorker, Sciorra alleged that Weinstein raped her after he forced his way into her apartment in 1993. Similarly, over a number of years repeatedly sexually harassed her. Moreover, Sciorra was the key witness addressing the predatory sexual assault charges alleging. Likewise, Weinstein engaged in a pattern of violent and abusive behavior over many years. The jury struggled with Sciorra’s testimony, spending days deliberating on it as indicated by questions the jurors asked to the judge. Further, in the end, the jury unanimously decided that they could not convict Weinstein on the basis of her testimony beyond a reasonable doubt, and Weinstein was found not guilty on the predatory sexual assault charges.
