Life and career

Reuben was born in Toronto, to Pearl Avis (Mills), a classical singer, and Cyril George Reuben, an architect. Her parents were both Jamaican-born; her father, who was Caucasian, was from a Sephardi Jewish family, and her mother was Afro-Jamaican. Her father died when she was young.

Reuben is the half-sister of Denis Simpson, an actor and children's television host who died in 2010. She was the subject of a segment of Henry Louis Gates television genealogy series Finding Your Roots. She began learning piano as a child and later studied music technique and theory, ballet and jazz at the Canadian Royal Conservatory. Her career as an actress was triggered by a few jobs as a model and appearances in television advertisements.

Reuben is known for her role on the American television series ER as Jeanie Boulet, an HIV-positive physician assistant on the hospital's staff. She was a guest star throughout Season 1 and was elevated to full-time cast member at the beginning of Season 2. She continued that role until early Season 6, when she left the show. In 2008, Reuben returned to ER for one episode during its 14th season. She has stated that this role led to her HIV/AIDS activism.

Reuben again held a major role in a television series, when she starred as FBI agent Brooke Haslett in 1-800-Missing (2003-2004). She later starred as Rosalind Whitman in the TNT series Raising the Bar. In 1996 she was chosen by People magazine as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World.

In 2000, she sang back up vocals for Tina Turner on her Twenty Four Seven Tour.

Reuben guest-starred in the season two finale of Drop Dead Diva as Professor Kathy Miller. Reuben guest-starred in season 12 of NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit reprising her role as U.S. Attorney Christine Danielson. In 2012, she appeared in the CBS TV movie, Jesse Stone: Benefit of the Doubt.

In 2012, Reuben played Elizabeth Keckley in Steven Spielberg's historical drama film Lincoln and her portrayal of the character received critical praise. In 2013, she guest starred on the sci-fi drama series, Falling Skies.
