Roma Maffia (born May 31, 1958) is an American actress.

Life and career

Roma Maffia was born in Manhattan, New York and is of English, German and West Indian descent. Her Italian surname comes from her stepfather. Reliable sources differ in regards to Maffia's surname. Articles in Curve and The New York Times state that Maffia is her stepfather's surname. In The Life and Crimes of Don King: The Shame of Boxing in America, which features an interview with her brother Joseph, it is reported that Maffia is their birth father's surname.
Maffia grew up in Brooklyn and began her official acting career in off-Broadway and off-off-Broadway productions. In 1994, she played Carmen in director Ron Howard's film The Paper. Soon after, she landed a role on the television series Chicago Hope. Maffia's television career continued as she played Grace Alvarez, the forensic pathologist for the Violent Crimes Task Force for four seasons on Profiler. She has had guest-starring and recurring roles on shows such as ER, The West Wing, and Law & Order.
Her most widely seen performances may be playing Seattle attorney Catherine Alvarez in the film Disclosure (1994), starring Michael Douglas and Demi Moore. She followed this with a series of performances as Vanessa Galiano in the TV series Law & Order and as Judge Victoria Peyton on Boston Legal.
From 2003 to 2010 Maffia appeared as Liz Cruz on the FX Network series Nip/Tuck, the anesthesiologist colleague of two dysfunctional plastic surgeons. Maffia and Julian McMahon also worked together on the TV show Profiler. Maffia is a 1973 graduate of St. Michael Academy. Maffia had a supporting role on Pretty Little Liars from season 4 to season 7. Her character Linda Tanner is a savvy, no-nonsense state investigator working on unsolved murder cases in the fictional town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania.
