Bio

Melora Walters is an American actress best known for her starring role as Wanda Henrickson on the polygamy drama television series Big Love, from 2006-2010.

Born in Saudi Arabia, Walters spent part of her childhood in Holland before moving to New York. As a young adult she was active in sports and dance, both of which helped to shape her desire to perform. After studying abroad, she returned to America to pursue a career as an artist at the Pratt Institute in New York.

With the encouragement of her art professors, Walters began to write plays and experiment with acting. With persistence and determination, she soon found her way to the legendary Actor's Studio, and she began performing in various off-Broadway productions, including Scream and Dances of Bronx Bear and Burt Lancaster at the Manhattan Class Company.

Melora is known for her haunting performance as the drug-addicted yet sympathetic Claudia in the critically-acclaimed film Magnolia. She can also be seen in Matchstick Men, Cold Mountain and The Butterfly Effect.

Other credits include Rain, Wise Girls, Boogie Nights, Hard Eight, Dead Poets Society, Eraser, Ed Wood and Twenty Bucks.

Walters has also made many appearances on the small screen. Her television credits include Push, Nevada, L.A. Doctors, Roseanne, NYPD Blue, Picket Fences, Seinfeld and Showtime's telefilm Dead Man's Revenge.

Walters is also an accomplished artist, writer and painter. A book of her poetry and prints entitled Sonnets & Failures was published by Finishing Line Press in July of 2010.

She is divorced from Nip/Tuck actor Dylan Walsh, with whom she has two children, Joanna and Thomas.
