Bio

Kelly Overton is an American actress, screenwriter, director and producer best known for her role as Christie Monteiro in the 2010 action film Tekken; and for her recurring role (promoted to series regular in Season 6) as werewolf Rikki Naylor in the horror series True Blood.

Kelly grew up in Wilbraham, Massachusetts where she was a star athlete, playing soccer, basketball and was even undefeated in Western Massachusetts in the high hurdles. She moved to NYC right out of high school to study at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

She graduated with the highest honour, The Charles Jehlinger Award. While in New York she performed Off-Broadway, in regional Shakespeare, and on several TV shows.

Making the leap to Broadway, she debuted as Elaine Robinson in the original cast of The Graduate, starring opposite Kathleen Turner and Jason Biggs. Her career took her west after five years in New York.

Since moving to LA she has worked consistently in film and TV, but never forgetting her roots in the theatre. In 2008, with husband Judson Pearce Morgan, she wrote, directed, produced and starred in the The Collective.
