From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Melinda McGraw (born 25 October 1968 in Nicosia) is an American actress.

McGraw grew up in the Boston area where she got her start in acting with Boston Children's Theater (BCT). She moved on to RADA in London and and began her career in the late 1980s. Her first major role was playing Detective Cyd "Cydavia" Madison on The Commish from 1992 to 1994. While there she met Nicholas Lea who she dated for a few years.

Notable movie releases to date by McGraw were in 1998's Wrongfully Accused and 2000's The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps but her television roles are plentiful. They include guest appearances on Quantum Leap, Seinfeld, Cybill, Mad About You, The Larry Sanders Show, The District and The Practice.

McGraw also appeared in four episodes of The X-Files (One Breath, Blessing Way, Paper Clip and Christmas Carol) playing Scully's ill-fated sister Melissa. Her TV starring roles include Soul Man from 1997 to 1998, Wednesday 9:30 (8:30 Central) in 2002 and Center of the Universe in 2004.

McGraw also had a four episode arc on Desperate Housewives, as Annabel, a woman who Lynette (Felicity Huffman) feared of being out to destroy her marriage with Tom (Doug Savant), and may return for a couple of episodes in season 2, since a lot of material initially meant for the end of the season was cut or changed.

McGraw and Brian Benben were part of the cast of Neighbors, a pilot ordered by ABC for the 2005-06 season, but it was not picked up.

Melinda has been married since 14 October 2000 to artist Steve Pierson. They have a daughter. Her father served as a diplomat for the Agency of International Development under the Kennedy Administration.
