Despite having been in the spotlight for most of her life, actress Monica Potter struggled to make a name for herself in a variety of film and television projects. Potter had her official start with a short stay on the daytime soap opera "The Young and the Restless" (CBS, 1973- ), while appearing in high-profile features like "Con Air" (1997) and "Patch Adams" (1998) - none of which gave her an opportunity to display her true talents. Though she had her chance to shine in "Without Limits" (1998), the film's low profile and limited release dampened the effects of a solid performance. Undeterred, she plugged away for a few years in romantic comedies like "Head Over Heels" (2001) and "I'm With Lucy" (2002) until she found her stride not on the big screen, but on television. For two seasons, she delivered a fine performance as an upstanding attorney surrounded by more ethically-challenged counsel on the award-winning dramedy "Boston Legal" (ABC, 2004-08), an opportunity that opened the doors for a prominent career on the small screen, including co-starring stints on the popular dramedy "Parenthood" (NBC 2010-15) and short-lived procedural drama "Wisdom of the Crowd" (CBS 2017).
