Kari Matchett

Biography: Kari Matchett was always a performer. Growing up in Alberta, Canada, she took singing and dancing lessons as a kid and at age 12 she became obsessed with S.E. Hinton's novels, especially The Outsiders. She loved the pure emotions revealed in the stories. When she learned that The Outsiders was going to be a movie, she realized acting was a great way to express the pent-up emotions she felt. Matchett pursued her newfound obsession and achieved fame in her native country long before crossing the U.S. border. Canadian audiences were first wowed by her in 1996 on the First Nations drama The Rez and later on the hockey-themed series Power Play and the Toronto-based police drama Blue Murder. In 2001, Matchett made her biggest U.S. splash on A&E's Nero Wolfe as part of its ensemble cast, although some viewers recalled her from the syndicated sci-fi series Gene Roddenberry's Earth: Final Conflict, in which she played Siobhan Beckett.

While Matchett's résumé does boast some big-screen credits, it's TV where she continues to shine, with memorable guest shots (Crash; Leverage; Miami Medical) and as a regular (Covert Affairs).
