Kyra's career kicked back into high gear in 2005 when she won the role of Deputy Police Chief Brenda Johnson in TNT's "The Closer." The role helped Kyra take home a Golden Globe in 2007 and an Emmy in 2010. But the part also required the actress to relocate from her native New York City to Los Angeles. "I remember the first few years, it was like I was in an ocean and constantly getting tumbled over. I thought I was going to drown," Kyra told Ladies' Home Journal in 2009 of leaving behind her husband and teenage children for her hit series' Hollywood set.
