About Christina Cox

Christina Cox (born July 31, 1971) is a Canadian film and television actress and stuntwoman.

Early life

Christina Cox was born in a town on the outskirts of Toronto, the youngest of three daughters. She is Canadian of Caribbean (Jamaican) descent. She has two older sisters, named Tracey and Melissa. Her father is an automotive executive.

Cox studied theatre and dance at the Arts York program at Unionville High School, and continued her theatre training at the Ryerson Theatre School of Toronto, where she studied for two years.

Cox actively competed in gymnastics, track and field, and taekwondo while in school. She is also proficient in boxing, muay Thai kickboxing, and fencing, and has had training in stage combat, period weaponry, and firearms. During high school, she had aspirations of becoming an Olympic gymnast, but instead chose to focus on drama and theater.


Cox has more than 38 movie and television appearances to her credit. Her best-known movie credits include the 1999 Canadian movie Better Than Chocolate, and the movie The Chronicles of Riddick. She received a Gemini Award nomination for her performance as Angela Ramírez in F/X: The Series. Cox was an original member of the UPN sitcom Girlfriends, cast as Lynn, for the pilot episode.

Cox has appeared in numerous national theater productions, including Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, and Jim Cartwright's Road.

She is also a trained stuntwoman. She performed boxing stunt work for Hilary Swank in Million Dollar Baby.

Cox's first role as a main character in a television series was that of Vicki Nelson in Blood Ties, a supernatural detective series based on the novels by Tanya Huff. Tanya Huff later said, "Back when Christina Cox was doing F/X: The Series, I used to point at the screen and announce, 'When she's a little older, she'd be brilliant as Vicki!"

She starred as astronaut-biologist Jen Crane in ABC's 2009 summer show Defying Gravity. Cox also appeared in a Season Four episode of Showtime's series Dexter, playing villainous police officer Zoey Kruger. She was in the cast of the 2011 ABC summer drama Combat Hospital (aka The Hot Zone), alongside Elias Koteas and Deborah Kara Unger.
