American actress with a career spanning four decades, who first came to attention for the role of Mary Ryan on the daytime soap opera "Ryan's Hope" (1975-1978) and is prominently best known for the roles of Captain Kathryn Janeway on "Star Trek: Voyager" (1995-2001, the first female captain as a series regular in a leading role) and Galina 'Red' Reznikov on "Orange Is the New Black" (2013-).

She has performed in many television shows, theatre productions, and films since, earning a variety of awards for her acting, including an Obie Award, a Golden Satellite Award and a Saturn Award, as well as a Golden Globe Award and Primetime Emmy Award nomination. Mulgrew is an active member of the Alzheimer's Association National Advisory Council and the voice of Cleveland's MetroHealth System.

Mulgrew married Robert H. Egan in 1982. They have two sons, Ian and Alec. The couple separated in 1993. Their divorce became final in 1995. In April 1999, Mulgrew married politician Tim Hagan, a former Ohio gubernatorial candidate and a former commissioner of Cuyahoga County, Ohio. They have since divorced.

Mulgrew is Catholic and an opponent of abortion and capital punishment. In her 2015 memoir, "Born with Teeth," whose title references her being born with a full set of neonatal teeth, Mulgrew tells the story of being raped at knifepoint, being an unmarried mother who gave up her daughter for adoption during the start of her career, and their reunion in 2001.
