Brooke Smith can currently be seen on David E. Kelley’s Big Sky. She was recently seen in Jay Roach’s Bombshell, which centered on the female Fox News personnel and their allegations against founder Roger Ailes (John Lithgow). She played Ailes’ PR watchdog ‘Irena Briganti’.
Smith will be seen in a recurring role on Amazon’s anthology series Them: Covenant from creator Little Marvin and executive producer Lena Waithe. Set in 1953, it centers on a young couple who decide to move their family from North Carolina to an all-white Los Angeles neighborhood.

She is best known for her iconic role as ‘Catherine Martin,’ Buffalo Bill’s kidnap victim, in Jonathan Demme’s The Silence of the Lambs, which swept the Academy Awards, winning all five major categories, including Best Picture.
Television credits include a major recurring role in the fifth and final season of A&E’s thriller Bates Motel as ‘Sheriff Dana Green,’ the new face of law in White Pine Bay; The History Channel’s Project Blue Book , portraying a farmer in 1950’s West Virginia who believes she saw an alien and a UFO near her home; a prominent recurring role on Showtime’s Ray Donovan playing ‘Frances’, the nurse and love interest for Ray’s (Liev Schreiber) brother, ‘Terry’ (Eddie Marsan); and many other projects.
