Actually Hennessy's insecurity is unwarranted. She's an accomplished singer and guitar player who just recorded two songs for the new Crossing Jordan CD—covers of Bob Dylan's It's All Over Now, Baby Blue and Tom Waits's Innocent When You Dream. For Hennessy, they're familiar tunes: "I used to sit on the kitchen floor and listen to Dylan and Waits on the record player." And before she got her break on Law & Order (from 1993-96), her guitar helped her make ends meet. In Toronto, "I would be on the streets with my guitar case open for change," says the actress, who's expecting her first child with actor husband Paolo Mastropietro, 37, in October. "I've been singing for my supper for years."
