Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Having established herself as a television superstar in her native Australia while just a teenager, actress Melissa George hit American shores at the age of 21 when she made a name for herself starring in moody features like "Dark City" (1998), "Mulholland Drive" (2001) and "30 Days of Night" (2006). Though she made strides in features, George found her greatest success on television, where her recurring role as an antagonistic government agent on the popular espionage series "Alias" (ABC, 2001-06) helped turn her into a star. From there, she appeared in films like "The Amityville Horror" (2005) and "Derailed" (2005), before earning high critical praise as an anesthesiologist with an unhealthy sexual fixation on her therapist on the award-winning series "In Treatment" (HBO, 2008-2010). George later joined the hit show "Grey's Anatomy" (ABC, 2005- ) as a bisexual surgical intern, only to leave the series on her own volition following talk of her recurring role becoming permanent. She went on to star in the highly-praised horror thriller, "Triangle" (2009), while thriving on television with the miniseries "Bag of Bones" (A&E, 2011) and as the star of the spy thriller "Hunted" (BBC One/Cinemax, 2012- )....
