With her delicate features, especially her oh-so-expressive eyes, Francie Swift brought unexpected dimension to what could have been one-note roles, such as an ingratiating image consultant on the hit drama "The Good Wife" (CBS 2009- ).

In the former, she played Anne Archibald, the socialite mother of protagonist Nate Archibald (Chace Crawford), whose troubled relationship with his father tested her loyalties. Meanwhile, her character in "The Good Wife," combative lawyer Kya Poole, made a strong impression on critics and audiences though her arc on the series lasted for only five episodes. Swift next appeared in a recurring role on "Law & Order: SVU" (NBC 1999- ), playing coolly intelligent and aloof assistant district attorney Sherri West.
