AMY BRENNEMAN | JUDGING AMY

AGE: 36

ROLE: Family-court judge Amy Gray

RELATIVE SUCCESS: Also the shows co-creator, Brenneman based the series on the experiences of her own mother, Frederica, an ex-superior court judge.

PLEADING HER CASE: Whether serving justice or ice cream, Brenneman is complex and believable.

VERDICT: "Amy is that rare actress who avoids sentimentality," says co-executive producer Nicole Yorkin, adding that she "makes the series edgier than most shows about women."

PREGNANT PAUSE: The actress's first child is due next month.
