Joanna Going recently made a huge splash on the small screen starring as 'First Lady Tricia Walker,' opposite Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright and Michel Gill in Netflix's Emmy® nominated series "House of Cards." She returns to television this month, starring in DirecTV's first scripted series, the gritty and highly-anticipated "Kingdom." Going plays hard edged, drug-addled prostitute, 'Christina Kulina,' the estranged wife of 'Alvey Henderson,' (Frank Grillo) and mother to 'Jay' and 'Nate' played by the Jonas Brothers' Nick Jonas and Jonathan Tucker ("Parenthood"). The show is set against the backdrop of a Mixed Martial Arts gym.

Before this, she starred as sexy swinging soap opera diva 'Arlene' on AMC's sixth season of "Mad Men," and recurred on Robert Rodriguez's new El Rey Network horror series, "From Dusk Till Dawn." A leading lady on the big screen as well, with starring roles opposite Sean Penn in the Oscar nominated feature film, "Tree of Life," directed by Terence Malick, and alongside John Cusack, Elizabeth Banks and Paul Dano in the soon-to-be-released Brian Wilson/Beach Boys biopic "Love and Mercy," directed by Bill Pohlad ("12 Years a Slave").
 
Growing up in Newport, Rhode Island, Joanna moved to New York where she graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and soon made her feature debut opposite Kevin Costner in 1994's "Wyatt Earp." Other feature credits include "RunawayJury," based on the John Grisham novel, coming of age drama, "Inventing the Abbotts," opposite Billy Crudup, and "Still Breathing," opposite Brendan Fraser.

Joanna devotes her rare free time doing yoga, advocating for Breast Cancer Awareness and her two rescue dogs, Australian Shepherd mix, Maisie, and a Maltipoo named Honey Bee.
