This actress honed her craft in New York's Off-Broadway theater scene, and her theatrical background includes dancing in The Nutcracker as a child and performing Shakespeare. Foster launched her TV career as a guest on NBC stalwarts Law & Order and Law & Order: Criminal Intent in 2005. The very next year, she landed her first series-regular role, as a blissful newlywed living next door to a disgruntled, wisecracking couple on the marriage-minded sitcom 'Til Death. Her character was written out of the show after two seasons, but Foster continued guest starring on shows such as The Unusuals and The Good Wife. She also coproduced a live comedy-variety show called the Strike Show, which was created to support the WGA strike in 2007. In her spare time, this self-described "low key" gal spends her time reading, exercising and doing puzzles instead of attending Hollywood parties.
