A striking and compelling British actress, Sonya Walger first caught the attention of American television viewers playing Penelope Widmore, the once-lost love of Desmond Hume who keeps hope alive on the cult hit, "Lost" (ABC, 2004-2010). Prior to her breakthrough on the popular mystery series, Walger appeared on the stage and in episodes of several crime series before venturing across the pond for the ill-fated Americanized version of the British series "Coupling" (NBC, 2003). Though she worked steadily on the small screen in projects like "Sleeper Cell" (Showtime, 2005-06) and even courted controversy in the sexually explicit "Tell Me You Love Me" (HBO, 2007), Walger was still waiting for her first leading role despite the familiarity she gained from "Lost." Adept at portraying strong, complicated women, Walger finally had the chance to prove that she was a leading lady after landing the role of Dr. Olivia Benford, the successful surgeon with conflicting emotions about the future of her marriage on ABC's hit drama "FlashForward" (2009- ). All throughout, Walger brought a thoughtful intelligence to each of her roles, a quality that resonated with her audience over the duration of her career.
