Cherry Jones played Allison Taylor in 24: Redemption, Season 7, and Season 8 of 24. Cherry won Broadway's 1995 Tony Award as Best Actress (Play) for a revival of "The Heiress" and again in 2004 for John Patrick Shanley's "Doubt" (her role was later played by Meryl Streep in the movie adaptation). She is openly lesbian and is a prominent advocate for gay rights. Her early forays into film included The Perfect Storm (with Bob Gunton) and Signs. M. Night Shylaman, director of the latter, liked her so much in the support role that he casted her for his following project The Village.

In 2009, she won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series in 2009 for her role in Season 7. She, along with Kiefer Sutherland and Sarah Clarke, are the only actors who have received awards for their work on 24.

In 2012, Jones became part of the main cast of Awake, produced by Howard Gordon and Evan Katz.
