“I like to think I'm multifaceted; sexy but approachable. I don't have to be the sex kitten.” Moon Bloodgood

A former model and dancer, Bloodgood began her acting career on television by guest starring in such series as “Just Shoot Me,” “CSI,” “Monk” and “North Shore.” She had regular roles in the short lived series “Day Break” (2006, as Rita Shelten) and “Journeyman” (2007, as Livia Beale).

Childhood and Family:

“Moon is a Korean name and Bloodgood is Dutch. My mom has never tried a drug in her life. She named me Moon. It's not a pot thing but she does like to call pot ‘happy smoke.’” Moon Bloodgood

Korinna Moon Bloodgood was born on September 20, 1975, in Anaheim, California. Her father is an American of Irish and Dutch lineage and her mother is South Korean. They met while her military dad was stationed in Korea. Moon grew up in Orange County. She stated, “The misconception about Orange County is that it's all Caucasian and Republican. There are parts that are diverse and poor. It's not just a suburb of kids who have it easy.”

Moon mentions she is an admirer of science fiction series like “The X-Files” and “Battlestar Galactica.” She also cites “Memento” and “The Usual Suspects” as her favorite movies. “My favorite movies were always thrillers: 'Memento,' 'The Usual Suspects.' I love the idea that the audience member gets to solve a puzzle,” she revealed.

Career:

Moon Bloodgood dreamed of a career in music but instead was a cheerleader for the Los Angeles Lakers when she was 17 years old. She also did some modeling in New York and worked for the cosmetic giants Revlon, Avon, and Clairol, and Nike.

The aspiring singer/songwriter was collaborating with Paul Anka in Los Angeles when she made her television debut in an episode of the popular NBC sitcom “Just Shoot Me” (2002). It was followed by guest spots in the Fox short-lived adventure series “Fastlane” and the CBS drama series “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” (both 2003), where she appeared as a maid and stripper, respectively.

The next year, after portraying Lisa Morales on her first TV film, “Hollywood Division,” she made the leap to the big screen with a bit part in “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton,” an upbeat romantic comedy that was directed by Robert Luketic and starred Kate Bosworth, Topher Grace, and Josh Duhamel. The film was largely ignored by critics and audiences. She then returned to television and appeared as Lacey Riggs in an episode of the Fox primetime soap opera “North Shore.”

In February 2005, Bloodgood portrayed Hayley in an episode of Tony Shalhoub's hit series “Monk” called “Mr. Monk Gets Cabin Fever.” She then appeared in “A Lot Like Love,” starring Amanda Peet and Ashton Kutcher, Premiering in the U.S. on April 22, 2005, the romantic comedy opened at No. 4 at the box office and eventually grossed over $42 million worldwide. Bloodgood went on to portray Marie Devrenier in Giancarlo Tallarico's “Moonlight Serenade” (2006), opposite Amy Adams and JB Blanc, and Katie in “Eight Below” (2006), an adventure film directed by Frank Marshall for Walt Disney Pictures. “Eight Below,” in which she costarred with Paul Walker, Jason Biggs and Bruce Greenwood, received primarily positive reviews and was a success at the box office, with a total worldwide gross of more than $120 million.

Also in 2006, Bloodgood won her first regular role on the series “Day Break,” which starred Taye Diggs as protagonist Detective Brett Hopper. In the series, she played Rita Shelten, Brett's girlfriend. Debuting on ABC on November 15, 2006, the show was axed after six episodes. Later, in March 2008, the TV One cable network began airing a full season of “Day Break” for the American public.

2007 saw Bloodgood gain real notice portraying the Native American Starfire in the action film “Pathfinder,” opposite Karl Urban as Ghost and Russell Means as Pathfinder. Adapted from the 1987 Norwegian film with the same name, the film was directed by Marcus Nispel and written by Laeta Kalogridis. Later that same year, Bloodgood began a regular role on the NBC science fiction show “Journeyman,” opposite Kevin McKidd, Gretchen Egolf, Reed Diamond, and Brian Howe. Unfortunately, the show suffered from poor ratings and was soon canceled. The finale episode aired on December 19, 2007. Commenting about the show “Journeyman,” she said, “I think it's good and I think it's deep and it has heart. I love doing a show that's not superficial. It has so many layers and I love captivating people in that way.”

In 2008, Bloodgood teamed up with top names like Robert De Niro, Sean Penn, Stanley Tucci, Bruce Willis, Catherine Keener and John Turturro in the satirical “What Just Happened?” for director Barry Levinson. Written by Art Linson and based on his book “What Just Happened? Bitter Hollywood Tales from the Front Line,” which is about his experiences as a producer in Hollywood, the independent film was shown at the 2008 Sundance and Cannes film festivals. Bloodgood next portrayed Detective Maya Sunee in the high-profile film “Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li” (2009), directed by Andrzej Bartkowiak, and Blair Williams in “Terminator Salvation” (2009), a sequel to the Terminator movies. Bloodgood also provided the voice of Blair Williams on the TV series version “Terminator Salvation: The Machinima Series” (2009). The year also found her having guest roles in the Emmy nominated crime series “Burn Notice.”

Bloodgood was cast as Beth in the drama “Bedrooms” (2009), which was directed by Youssef Delara, Michael D. Olmos and Victor Teran. The upcoming movie also stars Julie Benz, Xander Berkeley, Sarah Clarke and Dee Wallace.
