Biography

Blonde and fresh-faced, with a passing resemblance to acting contemporary Heather Graham, Marley Shelton began her career as a child star in the early 1990s, essayed scene-stealing supporting characters later in her career, and soon went on to land her first starring role in the high-school set black comedy "Sugar and Spice" (2000). Billed early on as Marlee Shelton, the young actress made her film debut in 1991's "Grand Canyon" after guesting on a 1990 episode of CBS' short-lived sitcom "The Family Man". More episodic TV work followed, including 1992 appearances in ABC's popular "Family Matters", the less enduring comedy "Camp Wilder" (also ABC), and the failed detective series "Bodies of Evidence" (CBS). As Shelton moved into her late teens, an onscreen presence marrying her girl-next door sweetness with a compelling sexuality emerged. This aspect was put to good use in the 1993 CBS primetime soap "Angel Falls", where she portrayed a promiscuous trouble-making teen but unfortunately for Shelton, the series only lasted six episodes. That same year the young actress was featured as a junior femme fatale, playing the lifeguard crush object of the young boys in "The Sandlot", a baseball-themed children's feature.

Bonus Trivia

.

Shelton on catching the acting bug: "I have a lot of family members in the arts and entertainment, and my dad is a director. But it took me a long time to sort of embrace that identity. When I was young, I wanted to do anything but that. I remember wanting to get into advertising. I think I just wanted to do something that used the left side of the brain, something practical and stable. But it's really true, you can't escape your destiny." - quoted on E! Online, April 15, 1999

.

"I was a cheerleader in high school and I've always wondered if that wasn't the biggest waste of time, but it's turned out that it was the best investment I could have ever made. In 'Sugar and Spice,' I play a cheerleader who gets knocked up and then robs a bank to support her family-to-be, so that chapter of my life is redeemed." - Shelton to Vanity Fair, magazine, November 1999

.

Shelton on "Sugar and Spice": "I worked with five actresses - all beautiful - and it was a blast. I sound like a commercial, but I'm really telling the truth." - quoted in the Toronto Sun, Nov. 3, 1999

.

On April 30, 2010, Shelton was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence; DUI charges were dismissed on June 1, 2010
