Vanessa Ferlito (born December 28, 1980) is an American actress.
She is known for her roles in The Sopranos, Man of the House, and Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof, and in particular for playing Claudia Hernandez during 24's third season and Detective Aiden Burn on CSI: NY. She chose to leave the show because she wanted to focus on theatre and films, where her biggest role to date has been as the trader Audrey in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps who helps Jake, the main protagonist get revenge against the film's antagonist Bretton James.
Although she is of Italian descent she often plays Latinas on TV and in films, such as Puerto Rican American Roxanna Rodriguez in Nothing Like the Holidays. In 2012, Ferlito was cast in Jeff Eastin's new drama series Graceland.
An Italian American, Ferlito was born in Brooklyn, New York. Her father died of a heroin overdose when she was two. Her mother and stepfather own a hair salon in Brooklyn. Ferlito gave birth to her son Vince in September 2007.
