Enos’ big break in television came in the form of her supporting role in the HBO drama BIG LOVE from 2007-2010. Impressed by her range and versatility, Enos was cast in a double-role playing twins ‘JoDean and Kathy Marquart,’ which eventually lead to her leading role on the AMC hit show THE KILLING for four seasons beginning in 2011.

In 2017, Enos was seen in the thriller NEVER HERE, opposite the late Sam Shepard, in what became his final role.

Most notably, on stage, Enos starred in the Broadway revival of WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF opposite industry veterans Bill Irwin and Kathleen Turner where she earned herself a Tony nomination for “Best Featured Actress in a Play.” In 2006, Enos joined the original cast as the play transferred to London’s famous West End



“I try to stay out of results as much as possible and just trust that the next thing will come.”

“Nothing we can fabricate is more interesting than who we actually are. Everyone is infinitely complicated and alien and stunningly beautiful and we all just carry it around with us, so trying to put something on top of that to please some idea will never be as magical as simply revealing who we are.”
