A journeyman actor, Melinda McGraw worked at nearly every level of the English-speaking thespian world, from the heights of British theater to her share of abortive primetime television series; along the way, putting her mark on some of the most buzz-worthy shows of her time. McGraw found her most memorable work playing recurring characters on the likes of Fox's sci-fi phenomenon, "The X-Files" (1993-2002), "The West Wing" (NBC, 1999-2006) and ABC's popular comic soap, "Desperate Housewives" (2004-12). She would also earn raves for her captivating performance as a seductive but take-no-prisoners show business manager and wife on AMC's multi-Emmy-winning drama, "Mad Men" (2007-15). Returning to regular work on the comedy series "Hank" (NBC, 2009) opposite Kelsey Grammer, she again proved her unlimited capacity to nimbly play a broad spectrum of roles and styles - from ethereal angel to scheming harpy; from sharp comedy to sobering drama.
