Daphne Rubin-Vega

Personal Information
Daphne Rubin-Vega lit up Broadway with her debut as Mimi in the original cast of Rent. It earned her a Theatre World Award, a Tony nomination as Best Actress and a nomination for the Drama Desk Award. Film roles include the straight-laced cop in Wild Things opposite Kevin Bacon and Matt Dillon (for which she won a Blockbuster Movie Award) and she slept with Robert DeNiro in Flawless. Off-B'Way: Gum at the Women's Project and Two Sisters and a Piano at the Public Theatre. Daphne is thrilled to be back on Broadway while working on new music and getting her CD (under the now-defunct Mercury label) out into the world. Thanks to the Great Spirit and to Tommy for love, inspiration and clarity.
