Andrea Roth was a Canadian actress who was best known for her role as Janet Gavin, wife of Denis Leary's character Tommy Gavin, on the long-running comedy-drama "Rescue Me" (FX, 2004-11). Born to a Dutch mother and Scottish father in Woodstock, Ontario, Roth began acting in the theater when she was a pre-teen. She made her theatrical debut at the age of 11 in her native Canada when she nabbed a role in "The Miracle Worker." She continued appearing in plays over the next few years, thus honing her craft night after night before a live audience, but soon began auditioning for film and TV parts. She nabbed her very first TV role on the "The New Alfred Hitchcock Presents" (NBC/USA Network, 1985-89) when she was 21, and spent the next several years building her career by landing numerous guest spots on shows like "Murder, She Wrote" (CBS, 1986-1996) and "Highlander" (TF1, 1992-98). Roth's first big show business break came in 1995 when she appeared alongside Sally Field in the Golden Globe-winning mini-series "A Woman of Independent Means" (NBC, 1995). After the success of the mini-series, Roth began landing more film roles, including "Burn" (1998), "Hidden Agenda" (1999), and "Highwaymen" (2004). Then in 2004 she was cast alongside Denis Leary on the FX comedy-drama "Rescue Me." Roth played Janet Gavin, the wife of Leary's character, on all seven seasons of the show. When the series ended in 2011 Roth continued nabbing series regular parts on shows like "Ringer" (The CW, 2011-12) and "Rogue" (Audience, 2013-17), as well bit parts on popular shows like "Castle" (ABC, 2009-2016) and "13 Reasons Why" (Netflix, 2017- ). In 2018 Roth appeared on the superhero series "Cloak & Dagger" (Freeform, 2018- ). The series, which was based on a popular Marvel comic book of the same name, premiered on Freeform in June of 2018.
