After college, she pursued acting full-time in Los Angeles  She made her acting debut in Who's the Boss? and followed that with guest-starring roles in TV shows like Melrose Place, Matlock, and The Sentinel as well as such TV movies as Co-Ed Call Girl

Her big break came when she won a regular role as the extraterrestrial investigator Juliet Stuart on the TV series Dark Skies  The show was cancelled after one season, but the role had drawn the attention of the science-fiction community

In 1997, Ryan was chosen for a role on the science fiction series Star Trek: Voyager as Seven of Nine, a Borg drone who had been "de-assimilated," or freed, from the Borg's collective consciousness, When she joined the cast in Season 4, ratings increased 60% [6] She appeared in Wes Craven's Dracula 2000 [7] After Voyager ended in 2001, Ryan joined the cast of Boston Public in the role of Veronica Cooke, nicknamed "Ronnie," a frustrated lawyer who quits the bar to become a high-school teacher  The show's producer, David E  Kelley, wrote the role specifically for her  The show ended in 2004

Ryan appeared in the film Down With Love[8] and as Lydia in the independent film Men Cry Bullets [9] Ryan's first film lead was in the "indie" comedy The Last Man, as the last woman left on Earth [10] The film was released by Lion's Gate

In 2005, she had a role in a pilot called Commuters, a suburban big city version of Desperate Housewives [11] She also had a recurring role as Charlotte Morgan on The O C  in 2005[12]; and she guest-starred as Courtney Reece on David E  Kelley's Boston Legal in 2006  Ryan then co-starred in the CBS legal drama Shark as Los Angeles County District Attorney Jessica Devlin alongside series lead James Woods[13][14], but she did not return for episodes aired after the 2007–2008 Writers Guild of America strike although she was credited in all four episodes [15] The show did not air between January 27 and April 29, 2008  CBS cancelled the broadcast of the series after its Season 2 finale, May 20, 2008 [16]

She debuted as defense attorney Patrice La Rue on the April 7, 2009, episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, her first role since giving birth to her daughter Gisele [17]

Ryan next won a 7-episode role on the TNT drama Leverage in Season 2 as grifter Tara Cole to fill in while Gina Bellman (Sophie) was on maternity leave [18]

She was in the Kevin Tancharoen-directed short film Mortal Kombat: Rebirth as Sonya Blade [19] Although originally a film, it is being marketed as a web series, with Episode 1 previews scheduled to appear online in June 2010 [20] The web series officially launched in March 2011 [21][22][23][24]

Ryan is a regular in the medical drama series Body of Proof, which premiered on March 29, 2011 [25]

Ryan has also continued to appear in guest roles on genre television shows, most recently on the Syfy series Warehouse 13 as US Marine Major Amanda Lattimer, ex-wife of the show's male lead character Peter Lattimer, in the episode "Queen for a Day," aired August 1, 2011
[edit] Personal life

In 1990, while dealing blackjack at a charity event, the actress met investment banker and future Republican political candidate Jack Ryan  The couple married on June 15, 1991, and had a son, Alex, on August 15, 1994  Throughout the marriage, they took turns commuting between Los Angeles and Chicago for their careers but divorced on August 27, 1999  Although Ryan mentioned in an interview for Star Trek that the frequent separations had been difficult for the marriage, the reasons for the divorce were kept sealed at their mutual request

Ryan had at one point dated Star Trek: Voyager producer Brannon Braga  Between February and November 2000, they were stalked by Marlon Estacio Pagtakhan, who was convicted for harassment and threats in May 2001 [26][27][28] According to Crime Stories, aired on the UK Crime channel on 05/07/2009,[when?] the stalker had letters stating that he was going to sexually assault Ryan and torture Braga

When Jack Ryan's campaign for an open United States Senate seat in Illinois began in 2003, the Chicago Tribune newspaper and WLS-TV, the local ABC affiliate, sought to have his records released  Both Jeri and Jack agreed to make their divorce, but not custody, records public, saying their release could be harmful to their son [29]

On June 18, 2004, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert Schnider agreed to release the custody files [30] The decision generated much controversy because it went against both parents' direct request and because it generally reversed the early decision to seal the papers in the best interest of the child  It was revealed that six years previously, Jeri had accused Jack Ryan of asking her to perform sexual acts with him in public,[31] and in sex clubs in New York, New Orleans, and Paris [29][32] Jeri Ryan described one as "a bizarre club with cages, whips and other apparatus hanging from the ceiling "[33] Jack Ryan denied these allegations  Although Jeri Ryan only made a brief statement,[34] and she refused to comment on the matter during the campaign, the document disclosure led Jack Ryan to withdraw his candidacy;[35][36] his main opponent, Barack Obama, then won the 2004 United States Senate election in Illinois

Ryan's avocation, according to statements she has made in interviews, is gourmet cooking  While starring in Boston Public, she moonlighted on weekends in the kitchen of the Los Angeles restaurant The House [37] In 2003, Ryan met French chef Christophe Émé at a chef's charity event  The two eventually began a relationship, and Émé moved in with Ryan and her son Alex in their San Fernando Valley home [38] In February 2005, Ryan, a "lifelong Francophile",[38] opened—in partnership with Émé—the restaurant Ortolan [39] Located on Third Street in Los Angeles, California, the restaurant served French food with a modern interpretation  The two have appeared on Iron Chef America, where Émé and one sous-chef challenged Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto and his two sous-chefs  The restaurant is seen in season two, episode twenty-six of Boston Legal as Denny Crane (William Shatner) and Alan Shore (James Spader) are discussing the arrival of Courtney Reece (Jeri Ryan) at "her favorite restaurant " Despite its success, the restaurant closed in December 2010

Ryan and Émé married in the Loire Valley, France, on June 16, 2007 [40] On September 7, 2007, Ryan announced that she and Émé were expecting their first child together, a daughter, in March 2008 [38][41] On March 20, 2008, Ryan gave birth to daughter Gisele Émé in Los Angeles, California [42]
