Elisabeth Röhm (/ /,, German: [eˈliːzabɛt ˈʁøːm]; born April 28, 1973) is a German-American television and film actress. She is best known for playing Kate Lockley in the television series Angel from 1999 to 2001 and Serena Southerlyn in the television series Law & Order from 2001 to 2005. She has also appeared in films such as American Hustle (2014), Joy (2015) and Bombshell (2019).
Röhm was born in Düsseldorf, West Germany, to Lisa Loverde and Eberhard Röhm. Her father was a German partner at the law firm of Duane Morris LLP New York, and the family moved to New York City before her first birthday. Her mother was an American scriptwriter, who once wrote for the TV soap opera Guiding Light. Röhm's parents divorced when she was 8 or 9. Her maternal grandfather was an Italian immigrant.
Röhm attended grades 11–12 at St. Andrew's-Sewanee School, a small private boarding school in Sewanee, Tennessee, and then graduated from Sarah Lawrence College, where she studied writing and European History.
Röhm received her first TV acting role in 1997, as Dorothy Hayes in the American soap opera One Life to Live. She had a starring role in the 1999 BBC Northern Ireland miniseries Eureka Street, then portrayed recurring character Detective Kate Lockley in the first two seasons (1999–2001) of the TV series Angel. While appearing in Angel, Röhm also had a regular role in the only season (2000–2001) of the Turner Network Television drama series Bull.
Röhm portrayed regular character Assistant District Attorney Serena Southerlyn through four seasons (2001–2005) in the television series Law & Order. She also portrayed deputy DA Amanda Taylor on Stalker. More recently, Röhm has received critical acclaim for her roles in two David O. Russell films, American Hustle and Joy.
Röhm was a longtime avid equestrienne, but gave up professional equestrianism after a 2005 accident that she spoke about in a 2011 episode of the Biography Channel series Celebrity Close Calls. She did have a horse-riding scene with Mark Harmon in an NCIS episode.
Röhm was engaged to director Austin Smithard in 2000. In 2005, Röhm began a relationship with Ron Anthony Wooster. Röhm and Wooster have a daughter born in 2008. Röhm and Wooster married in October 2008. They later divorced in October 2014. In January 2019, Röhm announced her engagement to judge Jonathan T. Colby. As of March 2020, Röhm's publicist revealed that she and Colby are no longer together.
Röhm has included a blog on her personal website, where she often wrote about life with her daughter and her then-fiancé. On January 6, 2011, People added Röhm's blog to the "Moms & Babies" section of its website.
