Geneva landed a French bank job on Wall Street but soon had to quit after she saw an Off-Broadway play that challenged her acting talent she threw under the bus of the French language. After quitting her job, she enrolled to study acting at the Actors Studio alongside Jane Hoffman, but in order to make ends meet, she worked as a bartender and hostess in Manhattan wavy spots like Pastis and The Waverly Inn. She was also booked for voice-overs, as she prepared for an acting career.
Geneva Carr: Career
Geneva Carr appeared in a series of AT&T commercials and in 1997, she made her first television appearance in an episode of “Spin City” as Kathy. The following year, she made her motion picture debut in the movie “Restaurant” as a funeral guest. Most of her earlier roles on TV were mainly in episodes.
In 2002, she played the role of a delivery nurse in the romantic comedy-drama television series “Sex and the City”. Between 2005-2009, she had a long time on TV as she played the role of Faith Yancy in “Law & Order: Criminal Intent”. For someone who was inspired by an Off-broadway play, it was expected (but not mandatory) that she would make a Broadway appearance and the opportunity came in 2015 in the play “Hand to God” where she starred as Margery a widow whose husband recently died. To ensure that she is not idle, her minister, Pastor Greg, has asked her to run the puppet club.

Her marriage with Yuji Yamazaki only lasted for 1 year and six months (26 June 2014 – 27 December 2015). Relationships and marriages can go sour and she is not the first celebrity to have a broken marriage very early. In fact, seeing the way couples sign divorce papers in Hollywood these days, Geneva Carr’s marriage seems to have lasted longer.

Here, we care for accuracy and we will rather say that the actress has a growing net worth. She is 5 feet 3 inches in height or 1.6 meters tall.
