She reprised the role in the 2002 TV reunion film L.A. Law: The Movie.
Greene was born in Las Vegas, Nevada to an Irish American father, Roland, and a Mexican/Nicaraguan mother, Dorita, who was an accomplished singer and dancer. She attended Fairfax High School in Los Angeles where she picked up a taste for acting after enrolling in a high-school drama class; she had chosen the class to help her overcome her extreme shyness. She then attended University of Southern California, where she auditioned for and was accepted to the Bachelor of Fine Arts program, entering on a scholarship and beginning her formal training as an actor. During her college years she began working in television, appearing in numerous guest shots and television movies.
Shortly after graduation, she landed the role of Judy Nuckles in the short-lived Steven Bochco series Bay City Blues (1983). When that was cancelled, Bochco kept her in mind and offered her the role of Abby Perkins on L.A. Law in 1986. The show was a critical and commercial success, winning multiple Emmys and garnering Greene a nomination in the Best Supporting Actress category in 1989. Together with Amanda Donohoe her character participated in what was U.S. primetime television's first lesbian kiss in 1991. Greene appeared on L.A. Law for five seasons, leaving in 1991 to pursue her musical career and stretch her acting challenges.
After leaving L.A. Law, Greene had acting roles in a number of popular television series including Bones, CSI, CSI: Miami, Cold Case, Crossing Jordan, Diagnosis: Murder, JAG, Judging Amy, Nip/Tuck, The Outer Limits, Six Feet Under, Stargate SG-1 and The Unit.
