With her chameleon-like acting skills, Molly Parker found success on screen in an extremely wide range of projects. Born and raised in British Columbia, Canada, Parker studied dance as a child, but became interested in acting as a teen. Signing with her uncle's agent, she made some of her first appearances in TV movies like "My Son Johnny" (CBS, 1991). Parker worked consistently over the next few years appearing mainly in small roles on television until her big break came in 1996 when she was cast in the leading role in the controversial independent film "Kissed" (1996) as a young woman struggling with feelings of necrophilia. From there, she landed a co-starring role on the quirky sitcom "Twitch City" (CBC, 1998-2000), but her next splash would come when she took on the role of Alma on the acclaimed Western series "Deadwood" (HBO, 2004-2006). Though the show was canceled in 2006 to the disappointment of many vocal fans, Parker quickly moved on to star on another acclaimed, if canceled series, the period drama "Swingtown" (CBS, 2008). Parker would go on to play a recurring role on "Dexter" (Showtime, 2006-2013), and later co-starred on the critically lauded "House of Cards" (Netflix, 2013-18) as well as on the Netflix reboot of "Lost in Space" (Netflix, 2018-) before triumphantly reprising the role of Alma for the film continuation "Deadwood: The Movie" (2019).
