Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

An attractive blonde actress whose career began with a series of nationally televised commercials, Geary moved from commercials to small roles in such features as "Dance to Win" (1989) and "Rich Girl" (1991). Her TV credits include guest spots on the docudramas "Divorce Court" and "Superior Court". Geary is best known for her role of Shelly Tambo, a naive nymphet and former 'Miss Northwest Passage' on the award-winning series "Northern Exposure" (CBS, 1990-95). Geary returned to the big screen opposite Luke Perry in "8 Seconds" (1994), the biopic of rodeo rider Lane Frost, and played a small role as a gymnast in the Sundance favorite "Smoke Signals" (1998). She returned to series TV headlining the very short-lived (only two episodes aired) "You're the One", a 1998 midseason replacement sitcom on The WB.
