Melanie Lynskey

Powered by imdb

At 16 years of age, Melanie Lynskey captivated audiences with her explosive debut in Peter Jackson's Academy Award-nominated Heavenly Creatures, scooping a Best Actress prize at the New Zealand Film and TV Awards for her portrayal of an outcast teen whose relationship with her best friend (Kate Winslet) spirals dangerously out of control.Following a three-year hiatus spent studying theatre at university and re-locating from New Zealand to Los Angeles, Lynskey made a welcome return to the silver screen when she was cast opposite Drew Barrymore in Ever After: A Cinderella Story. Parts in Detroit Rock City, But I'm a Cheerleader, Coyote Ugly, Snakeskin, Abandon, Sweet Home Alabama, Shattered Glass and Clint Eastwood's acclaimed Flags of Our Fathers came next.In recent years, Lynskey has worked her scene-stealing magic in a variety of projects, such as Steven Soderbergh's The Informant!, Sam Mendes's Away We Go, Jason Reitman's Best Picture Oscar nominee, Up in the Air, Thomas McCarthy's critically lauded Win Win and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Prolific supporting roles - opposite the likes of George Clooney, Edward Norton and Matt Damon - aside, central parts in Hello I Must Be Going, Putzel, The Big Ask, Happy Christmas, We'll Never Have Paris and Goodbye to All That have proved that she is also a capable and charismatic leading lady.In addition to an impressive body of film work, Lynskey has appeared regularly on the small screen since her television debut in Stephen King's Rose Red, which was followed by roles in Drive and Comanche Moon, as well as guest stints on The Shield, The L Word and House M.D.. However, she's probably best known to TV audiences for her frequent appearances as Rose - Charlie Sheen's delightfully deranged stalker - on the Emmy Award-winning Two and a Half Men.  See full bio on IMDb »
