|As a redhead for her new police |
drama, CBS's Unforgettable.
Hometown: Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, and its suburbs, according to her Wikipedia profile. She and her sisters were named for flowers, their brother after Jethro Tull, which suggests their parents just MIGHT have had hippie tendencies. (Not that there's anything wrong with that!)
Best Known For: Poppy's best known to American TV audiences for her co-starring role on the FBI drama Without a Trace, which ran for season seasons (2002-2009) on the CBS network. She'll return to CBS (home of the crime procedural) this fall on Unforgettable, based on J. Robert Lennon's short story "The Rememberer" (also the show's original, hard-to-pronounce working title).
|As Marilyn Monroe in Blonde.|
|If you're beautiful enough to play |
Marilyn Monroe -- and she is --
this sort of photo probably happens
more often than to other people.
Humble Beginnings: Poppy did guest roles on Silk Stalkings (a two-parter), NYPD Blue, and Party of Five before landing her Without a Trace regular role. She was also a regular on a short-lived Kevin Williamson series called Glory Days that I'd completely forgotten ever happened. (That co-starred fellow celebrity crush Emily VanCamp -- who resembles some of Montgomery's earlier photos.) And she played Party Girl #1 in something called Tammy and the T-Rex. (Again, if it pays the bills...)
She's great with a wisecrack, and commercials for Unforgettable make me wonder if there might not be a bit more humor to that role than what she had to work with on Without a Trace. And like fellow Aussie crush Anna Torv of Fringe -- with whom there's a passing resemblance -- when Poppy Montgomery's characters DO smile, it's worth the wait.
