Carla Espinosa Turk (Judy Reyes) is Head Nurse and a highly qualified medical professional. Don't be surprised if she knows more than the doctors on some occasions.
But don't cross her. Carla may seem as harmless as a bunny, but she has a caliente side. Even the janitor knows to stay out of her way.
Judy Reyes grew up in the Bronx and attended Hunter College in Manhattan. In 1992, she landed her first major role in the independent feature "Jack and His Friends" and went on to perform extensively in the New York theater. She is a founding member of the Labyrinth Theatre Company, a multi-cultural acting space in Manhattan. She has served as both actor and producer on numerous productions over the past decade.
Reyes' film credits include Martin Scorcese's "Bringing Out the Dead," and the independent film "Went to Coney Island on a Mission from God, Be Back at Five." She appears in the film " Washington Heights." Reyes acted in and co-produced (with her husband, writer/director Edwin M. Figueroa) "Taino," a short film which was screened at the 1999 New York International Latino Film Festival and at the 2001 Los Angeles Latino Film Festival.
Reyes' television credits include "Oz," "The Sopranos" and "100 Centre Street." Her made-for-television movies include "John Sanford's Mind Prey," with Eriq La Salle, and "The Prosecutors."
Reyes resides in Los Angeles during production, but frequently returns to her native New York.
