Who is Marina Squerciati’s Husband – Eli Kay-Oliphant, Ethnicity, Net Worth, Quick Facts

You probably know her as Officer Kim Burgess from a few American police procedurals and most recently in the series, Chicago P.D. Marina Squerciati has been around since the early 90s and has been involved in on stage shows, films, television series, and voice roles. Some of her works include It’s Complicated, Blue Bloods, and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

Marina Squerciati’s Bio, Ethnicity

Marina Teresa Squerciati was born on April 30, 1984, in New York City. Growing up, she always had a thing for the theaters and the big screen. Little wonder she would go on to study at Northwestern University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in theatre in 2003.

Marina’s earliest works include a few theater performances. Perhaps one of her best in this category is her off-Broadway portrayal of Judy Holiday in the play Just in Time: The Judy Holliday Story. For her performance, she received the Agnes Moorehead Award. Others off-Broadway titles she has been in include Beauty of the Father and Manipulation.

Marina Squerciati’s earliest known movie is the family fantasy movie The Nutcracker  (1993). She did not do any significant work following the movie until 16 years later when she made her feature film debut in It’s Complicated (2009) playing the role of the character known as Melanie. In this movie, she got to work with industry heavyweights like Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin, and Meryl Streep.

Since then, she has played various characters in a number of movies including Alter Egos (2012), Sparks (2013), and Marshall (2017).

In 2009, Marina Squerciati appeared in her first television role which was a guest appearance in an episode of Law & Order: Criminal Intent. In the two years that followed, she extended her television portfolio with guest appearances in series such as The Good Wife, Damages, Blue Bloods, and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

In 2011, she became a little more known when she had an 8-episode long involvement in the successful teen drama series Gossip Girl. Here, she played the character, Alessandra Steele. Since her appearance on the two series that are part of the Law & Order franchise, she has also been relatively more involved in other police dramas such as Chicago Fire, Chicago Justice, Chicago Med, and Chicago P.D. Her work on the latter is her longest-serving role as the show was renewed for a sixth season which premiered in September 2018. She has appeared in over 100 episodes of the series.

Marina Squerciati holds an interesting record of being one of the very few actresses to star as a single character in five different series that are not sequels to each other.

Who is Her Husband – Eli Kay-Oliphant?

While the information on the exact date of their marriage is fuzzy, Marina Squerciati is married to a man known as Eli Kay-Oliphant. Apparently, the two lovebirds are college sweethearts. They met as students in the University of Northwestern from where Eli graduated in 2001, two years before Marina.

Eli Kay is a lawyer by profession. After his time at Northwestern, he furthered his education at Emory University School of Law and graduated from the institution in 2005. The lawyer has slowly climbed the ladder of the American legal system, first working as a clerk for Honorable W. Eugene Davis at the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Subsequently, he worked as an associate at firms like O’Leveny & Myers LLP, Latham & Watkins LLP, and Latham & Watkins LLP. Throughout his working life, Kay-Oliphant has kept his interests in the areas of residential mortgage security, data privacy and security, and commercial litigation fraud.
