Kim Raver recently joined the cast of Grey's Anatomy as a series regular, playing Teddy Altman, an Iraq veteran who has a past with Dr. Owen Hunt. Raver last starred as Nico Reilly on NBC's Lipstick Jungle from creator Candice Bushnell (Sex In The City). She recently starred in the Lifetime original movie Bond Of Silence, where she plays as a widow investigating the death of her husband who was mysteriously murdered while trying to quell a wild teenage house party on New Year's Eve.

Raver endeared herself to critics and viewers during the five years she starred as paramedic Kim Zambrano on the police-paramedic drama Third Watch. Following that, she starred for two seasons on the Emmy Award-winning drama 24 as Audrey Raines. Raver had a regular role on the children's television series Sesame Street from the ages of 6 to 9. Other television credits include lead roles on dramas The Nine and Trinity and guest-starring roles in The Practice, Spin City, Law & Order, and a recurring role on Central Park West.

In 2006, Raver appeared in the feature-film comedy hit Night at the Museum, opposite Ben Stiller and Robin Williams. Her film credits include Prisoner with Julian McMahon, City Hall with Al Pacino, Mind the Gap (directed by Eric Shaeffer) and Keep Your Distance (directed by Stu Pollard). Raver also starred in the 2005 Lifetime movie, Haunting Sarah, a chilling supernatural thriller in which she portrayed identical twins.

At the start of her career, Raver was discovered by famed director Ridley Scott during a commercial shoot. Her big break came with her Broadway debut in the play Holiday, in which she co-starred with Laura Linney and Tony Goldwyn. In addition, Raver co-starred with David Schwimmer and John Spencer in the Williamstown production of The Glimmer Brothers, written by Warren Leight. As a child, she was a member of off-Broadway's first all-children's theater.

A fine arts graduate of Boston University, Raver continues to study theater in New York with teacher and mentor Wynn Handman. She is fluent in French and German, the latter being a language she learned as a child from her German-born mother.
