Born in San Francisco, CA in 1972, Brannagh made her acting debut playing Louie Anderson's sister in big-screen comedy "The Wrong Guys" (1988) and two years later landed her first major role, studious daughter Katie, in interracial family sitcom "True Colors" (Fox, 1990-92). Following TV movies "Rio Shannon" (1993) and "The Day My Parents Ran Away" (1993), Brannagh appeared as tavern girl Thena in sword and sorcery epic "Quest of the Delta Knights" (1993), guested on "NYPD Blue" (ABC, 1993-2005), "ER" (NBC, 1994-2009) and "Touched by an Angel" (CBS, 1994-2003), and played human-turned-vampire Sasha in urban gothic drama "Kindred: The Embraced" (Fox, 1996).

Brannagh then enjoyed multi-episode stints on sitcom "Chicago Sons" (NBC, 1997) and police procedural "Brooklyn South" (CBS, 1997-98), appeared in period drama "The Inheritance" (1997) and landed the part of seductress Molly Pichon in swashbuckler "The Man in the Iron Mask" (1998). Brannagh turned leading lady in indie drama "The Fair" (1999), playing an aspiring singer attempting to make peace with her unsupportive father, before bagging the recurring roles of Molly in western "Legacy" (UPN, 1998-99) and Virginia Brice in spin-off "Angel" (The WB, 1999-2004).

After a supporting turn in black comedy "Life Without Dick" (2002), Brannagh added "Star Trek: Enterprise" (UPN, 2001-05), "24" (Fox, 2001-2010) and "Without a Trace" (CBS, 2002-09) to her list of guest spots, played Luke Macfarlane's dysfunctional wife Vanessa in Iraq War drama "Over There" (FX, 2005) and was cast as no-nonsense ex-cop Pamela Moran in "Army Wives" (Lifetime, 2007-2013).

During her six-year spell on the military base drama Brannagh also took top billing in TV movies "Next Stop Murder" (2009) and "Mystery Girl" (2011), playing a law student who gets embroiled in a homicide plot in the former and a single mother online dater in the latter. She also starred as the object of Tony Hale's affections in romantic comedy "Not That Funny" (2012) and guested on "Criminal Minds" (CBS, 2005-), "Leverage" (TNT, 2008-2012) and "Longmire" (A&E, 2012-14).

Brannagh then played a marriage counsellor who discovers her elderly father's hired help isn't all she seems in psychological thriller "The Nurse" (2014), a mother whose white water rafting trip is hijacked by three escaped convicts in TV movie "Eyewitness" (2015) and a home improvement TV star terrorised by a Moldovan village in found-footage horror comedy "They're Watching" (2016).

Brannagh then played a mother suspicious of her daughter's new boyfriend in both "His Secret Past" (2016) and "The Twin" (2017), and stuck with maternal roles in Native American drama "Te Ata" (2016), adventure mystery "Left Behind: Vanished: Next Generation" (2016) and thriller "You Get Me" (2017).

Brannagh ventured into the superhero world when she was cast as Gertrude Yorkes' bioengineer mother Stacey in Marvel Comics' "Runaways" (Hulu, 2017-).
