Emerging as one of the brighter young stars on television in the mid-2000s, actress Minka Kelly parlayed strong supporting work into starring roles on screens both large and small. The daughter of former Aerosmith guitarist Rick Dufay, she first made headway with guest-starring roles on shows like "What I Like About You" (The WB, 2000-06), prior to landing a regular spot on the critically-acclaimed football drama series "Friday Night Lights" (NBC/DirecTV, 2006-11). Kelly's heartfelt portrayal of high school cheerleader Lyla Garrity not only earned her kudos, but film work in such projects as director Peter Berg's action-adventure "The Kingdom" (2007). Possibly less welcome was the press coverage of the young actress' romantic liaisons with such high-profile figures as musician John Mayer, New York Yankee superstar Derek Jeter and actor Jesse Williams. Following a season on "Parenthood" (NBC, 2010-15) and a lead role in the collegiate thriller "The Roommate" (2011), she went on to lead the casts of short-lived revamped action-crime series "Charlie's Angels" (ABC, 2011) and science fiction thriller "Almost Human" (Fox 2013-14).
