English-American actress. Bergl’s big break came with the lead role of Rachel Lang in the 1999 film, The Rage: Carrie 2, the sequel to the 1976 supernatural thriller Carrie. Much of her acting also takes place on television. Bergl has appeared in episodes of the TV shows Gilmore Girls, CSI: Miami, Medium, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, NYPD Blue, and Star Trek: Enterprise. She also appeared in the psychological thriller Chasing Sleep, opposite star Jeff Daniels, and had a major role in the Steven Spielberg miniseries Taken.
Recently she starred in the ABC series Men in Trees as Annie, an enthusiastic fan of relationship expert Marin Frist (Anne Heche) who travels to every event she appears at, and ends up in Elmo, Alaska with Marin by taking a bus up north from Vancouver. Annie stays in Elmo (as does Marin after she decides to re-evaluate her life), when she meets Patrick Bachelor (Derek Richardson), a local hotel desk clerk and radio DJ she knew through online chats about Marin’s books. They quickly fall in love, despite Annie’s jealousy streak towards other women interested in her new boyfriend, and clashes with Patrick’s mother Celia Bachelor (Cynthia Stevenson), the chief law enforcement official of Elmo.
Currently, Bergl can be seen in Becky Shaw at Second Stage Theatre in New York. The critically acclaimed play is scheduled to run through March 15, 2009.
