Erin Lynn Cummings is an American actress.


Cummings was born on July 19, 1977, in Huntsville, Texas. She graduated from the University of North Texas with a degree in Journalism, but she began a professional acting career when she was spotted by a talent scout from Los Angeles while she was performing in a community theater near Dallas. Cummings later went on to study Shakespeare at the prestigious London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art as preparation for her future roles as Lady Macbeth and Queen Gertrude in the Santa Susana Repertory Theater Company-developed productions of Macbeth and Hamlet, respectively. During her acting career, Cummings acquired minor roles in TV shows such as Charmed, Passions, and Star Trek: Enterprise. She then appeared alongside America Olivo and Julia Voth in the action-exploitation film Bitch Slap.

Cummings also recently starred as Spartacus' wife, Sura, in the Starz series Spartacus: Blood and Sand. The Muscle & Fitness magazine later featured Cummings in an article and pictorial for their February 2010 edition. She also acquired a recurring role on the Emmy-winning, AMC-produced series Mad Men. On television, Cummings became a series regular on the second season of Dante's Cove. Her other television work includes a guest-star appearance on Cold Case, a recurring role on Dollhouse, and appearances on Nip/Tuck and Threshold. In her personal life, Cummings is the founder of Mittens For Detroit, a community initiative whose sole purpose is to collect and distribute new gloves and mittens to children and adults in Detroit.
