Actress LIVIA TREVIÑO is Back and Brash on NBC’s Hit Revival Comedy ‘WILL & GRACE’
Also Emerges in NETFLIX Reboot Laugher ‘ONE DAY AT A TIME’ and FOX’s Drama-Thriller ‘9-1-1’
LOS ANGELES (February 28, 2019) – Actress Livia Treviño returns as the brash New York neighbor ‘Mrs. Timmer’ on NBC’s popular revival comedy series, WILL & GRACE, on March 7th. Treviño can also currently be seen bringing big laughs in an episode of the recently released Netflix sitcom, ONE DAY AT A TIME, and appears later this spring on the FOX drama, 9-1-1.
Revealed in the WILL & GRACE Season 10 opener, Mrs. Timmer (Treviño) has lived below Will and Grace for the last 19 years, a fact that Grace doesn’t seem to remember. In another episode, this quintessential brash New York neighbor discovers and returns the unopened long-lost letter that Will wrote to Grace, after it gets tossed off the balcony. In the March 7th episode “Supreme Courtship,” Mrs. Timmer is back and isn’t holding back when it comes to her clueless neighbor Grace, who unknowingly knocks over a prominent figure while going after a taxi.
Treviño is thrilled to return once again, adding “To shoot Will & Grace in front of a live studio audience, with its brilliant creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan, director James Burrows, and comedy legends Debra Messing, Eric McCormack, Sean Hayes and Megan Mullally, is like creative fireworks. The laughs are always huge and the whole experience magical!”
Treviño also recently emerged in another comedy reboot, Season 3 of the Netflix series ONE DAY AT A TIME, which dropped online on February 8th. In the final episode titled “Ghosts,” Penelope experiences a surreal conversation at her ex-husband’s wedding and is forced to face her own ghosts. Treviño steps into the storyline as Tia Inez, busybody aunt with no filter.
Also later this spring, Treviño shifts gears with an appearance in an all-new Season 2 episode of FOX’s drama-thriller series, 9-1-1. From creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Tim Minear, and starring Angela Bassett, Peter Krause and Jennifer Love Hewitt, 9-1-1 revolves around the high-pressure experiences of local first responders.
Treviño has built a solid acting career on screen and stage. Audiences will remember her memorable roles as the frightened Latina cleaning lady on CBS’s The Big Bang Theory, the crying lady on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, the straightforward medical examiner on NBC’s Criminal Minds, the no-nonsense desk cop on FOX’s Lucifer and the flamboyant Aunt Cha Cha in the acclaimed indie feature Food Stamps. On stage, Treviño has been praised by critics for her “wit and energy” in A Christmas Carol at South Coast Repertory, her “zesty portrayal” in the contemporary Romeo and Juliet at The Odyssey Theatre and as “top notch” in the West Coast premiere of Coyote on a Fence for which she earned an Ovation Award Nomination for Best Actress. In addition, Treviño has gained tons of fans as part of the improv comedy group Attention Deficit Disorder and for starring in their web series Urgunt Care on the YouTube channel Comedy ADD.
Originally from San Antonio, Texas, Treviño was first smitten with the art of dance. After earning a degree in Theatre from Trinity University, she made her way to New York studying and working as a dancer and choreographer. She trained with some of the best in the business, including Bob Audy, Luigi and at the New York School of Ballet. Setting her sights on acting, she honed the craft studying with several renowned coaches, the Second City Conservatory in Los Angeles, as well as the American University in Washington DC.
