Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Born in Lushoto, Tanzania, and raised in Toronto, Rachel Luttrell is best known for her roles on such TV series as "Street Legal" and "Stargate Atlantis." A classically trained singer, ballet dancer, and pianist, Luttrell developed an early interest in drama and theater. As a teenager she appeared in many stage productions in Toronto before moving to Los Angeles. Luttrell made her television debut in 1986 with a role in the drug abuse TV movie "Courage," and in 1989 she landed a recurring role in the Canadian series "Street Legal." Luttrell left the show in 1993 and soon found work in such films as "House," an adaptation of a one-man play about isolation, and "Joe's So Mean to Josephine," which chronicled the twisted relationship of two dysfunctional people. During the early 2000s Luttrell guest-starred on such shows as "ER" and "Charmed" before being cast as warrior leader Teyla Emmagan in the 2004-2009 sci-fi series "Stargate Atlantis." She has since portrayed a wealthy and insecure British woman in the indie film "The Aviary," and appeared in a supporting role in the madcap comedy "A Dog's Breakfast."
