Molly Price, who plays Faith Yokas, the long-suffering partner of grandstanding police officer Maurice “Bosco” Boscorelli (Jason Wiles) on “Third Watch,” sees many personal parallels with her character: “Faith cares greatly for her family and works very hard for what she believes in,” she says. Price herself is no stranger to a close family, being one of five children (two brothers and two sisters), and she is married to a New York City firefighter.
Price has appeared in such films as “Pushing Tin” with John Cusack, Billy Bob Thornton and Cate Blanchett, Sydney Pollack’s “Random Hearts” with Harrison Ford and Kristin Scott Thomas, and Woody Allen’s “Sweet & Lowdown” with Sean Penn and Uma Thurman in which Price plays Penn’s love interest. Price also was in the films “Kiss Me, Guido,” “Jersey Girls,” “The Visitors” and “Chasing Sleep” (with Jeff Daniels).
In addition to her film work, Price has guest-starred on NBC’s “Law & Order” and “Sex in the City,” as well as in the Hallmark Hall of Fame TV movie “Saint Maybe.” She also appeared in the Andrew Dice Clay sitcom “Bless This House” and had a recurring role as Mel on the daytime drama “As the World Turns.”
Price’s New York stage credits include “Salome” at Circle-in-the-Square, “Servie ‘N’ Bernice 4-Ever” at Circle Repertory Theatre and “Scrapple” with the EST Marathon.
Regional theater credits include “Cover of Life” with Hartford Stage, “The Heidi Chronicles” with St. Louis Repertory and “The Crucible” at the Long Wharf Theatre.
In addition to acting, Price enjoys boxing and reading. She has also made another of her passions – cooking – a career, by opening a gourmet sandwich shop on Block Island called Three Sisters.
A graduate of Rutgers University, Price grew up in North Plainfield, New Jersey and currently lives in New York City with her husband, Derek Kelly. Her birthday is December 15.
