Kelly Lynch stars in "Magic City" on Starz as Meg Bannock.

Kelly Lynch has been playing leads in Hollywood films since the late 1980s. The daughter of show people, she has been acting since age four. Lynch studied dance and then spent two summers training to be a director at the Guthrie Theater. As a young woman she moved to New York to study drama with Sanford Meisner and Marilyn Fried while simultaneously landing herself a modeling contract after a chance meeting in an elevator with the head of the Elite modeling agency, John Casablancas.

During the three years she modeled, Lynch made occasional TV appearances. She made her feature-film debut playing a bit part in "Bright Lights, Big City" in 1988 but did not play her first leading role until the following year in "Road House." Lynch first gained widespread acclaim and the first of two Independent Spirit Award nominations for her portrayal of Dianne, Matt Dillon's strung-out girlfriend in Gus Van Sant's brilliant "Drugstore Cowboy." Lynch's range is dazzling — from the sleek villainess in the movie "Charlie's Angels" to Thora Birch's doomed, schizophrenic mother in the Emmy-nominated television movie "Homeless to Harvard," to Mickey Rourke's corrupt lover in Michael Cimino's "Desperate Hours." Perhaps her most remarkable transformation was as Ivan Aycock, the gender-bending, courtly drag king in the groundbreaking hit Showtime series "The L Word."

Lynch has worked as a leading lady opposite many of the stars of our time: Denzel Washington, John Travolta, Harvey Keitel, Russell Crowe and Tom Cruise. She has often sought complicated roles in independent films such as "Imaginary Crimes," "Three of Hearts," "The Slaughter Rule," and John Mayberry's "The Jacket." Recently she had a recurring role on the hit CW show "90210" as Laurel Cooper, a hip surfer music producer and had a starring role on the new show "Memphis Beat." Her recent films include Gregg Araki's "Kaboom," "Passion Play" which was written and directed by her husband Mitch Glazer, and the comedy "Meet Stan Talmadge," in which she stars.
