Biography

The product of a show business family, Talia Balsam is best known for her work on TV in the dramas "Without a Trace" and "Mad Men". Born in New York City to actors Martin Balsam and Joyce Van Patten, she made her earliest appearances on TV shows like "Happy Days" in 1977 and "Archie Bunker's Place", which co-starred her father. Her guest roles continued in the '80s, including recurring parts on "Punky Brewster" and "Taxi". She had a starring role in the horror film "Crawlspace" in '86 and co-starred with Beverly D'Angelo and Patrick Dempsey in the romantic comedy "In the Mood". In the '90s she had a seven-episode run on the little-seen drama "L.A. Doctors" and in 2003 appeared on "K Street", a satire about Washington lobbyists. Her most memorable roles have been as the estranged wife of lead character Jack Malone on the mystery "Without a Trace", and the divorced wife of Roger Sterling--played by real-life husband John Slattery--on "Mad Men". Other significant film roles have come in the '90s-set period film "The Wackness" and the 2006 remake of the political drama "All the King's Men".
