Meet Leslie Hope: From 'The River' to a 'Mindfield' best actress nom

leslie-hope-gi.jpgIn ABC's "The River," Leslie Hope plays a wife searching the Amazon for her missing husband.

In the short film "Mindfield," she plays a wife and mother struggling to hold it all together after 17 years in a less-than-ideal marriage.

Now Hope is up for Best Actress honors at the Madrid International Film Festival for her role in "Mindfield," vying against actresses in full-length features. She stars opposite Grant Show in the taut film about a crumbling marriage. See the trailer below.

Before "The River," Hope played Jack Bauer's (Kiefer Sutherland's) wife on the first season of "24" and appeared as Kristina Frye on CBS' "The Mentalist."
