Kirsten Vangsness
One of the Entertainment Industry’s most charming performers, Kirsten Vangsness plays the blonde, be-spectacled, brainiac, tech-kitten, “Penelope Garcia” on the hit CBS drama, CRIMINAL MINDS. Originally, the role of “Garcia” was scripted as a one episode guest starring role but due to the overwhelming audience response to Vangsness – who last year was named one of the Top Ten “Scene Stealers by Entertainment Weekly – by the middle of the season, Vangsness was asked to join the show as a series regular: thereby giving “Garcia” free reign to hit on “Derek Morgan” (played by uber-hunk, Shemar Moore) to her imaginary heart’s content.

Additionally, Vangsness has a unique affinity for making and "re-designing" her own clothes. Because her previous day jobs almost always included working with children, Kirsten continues to volunteer at a few elementary schools- reading and teaching after school improvisation and acting classes. She is also passionate about making up really good vegetarian soups, NPR, collecting music, recycling, her nieces, her dog Bastian, and learning new jokes.
