Poppy Montgomery as Carrie Wells on Unforgettable

Carrie Wells Played by Poppy Montgomery

Carrie Wells is a leading detective in NYPD’s Major Crimes Section, where she uses her Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory as an invaluable crime-fighting tool. Defiant, brilliant, and beautiful, her solve rate is as perfect as her memory. But Carrie doesn’t like following rules — especially that one about cops not gambling — and she’s willing to do anything to bring down a bad guy. Oh, and did we mention, the New York Post just named her New York City’s most eligible bachelorette.
