Having grown up in a middle-class family of Irish, Czechoslovak and Polish ancestry, Mary Lynn was encouraged towards acting and performance arts since childhood. She picked-up a clarinet when she was in school, and together with the school band played at various functions, while she also acted as Frenchie in the musical “Grease”. After high school she moved to Los Angeles to pursue her career, but while trying to land any role she worked as a waitress in a Hard Rock Café, and held the ticket-taker position at the Beverly Center movie theater.
She started by playing Oompa-Loompa in a theater production of “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” in a local theater, however, she soon moved to screen roles, and spent the ‘90s building her name with one-time appearances in such TV series as “NewsRadio” (1998), and “Shasta McNasty” (1999), and then played Chloe in 15 episodes of the TV comedy series “Veronica’s Closet”. This role had put her on the Hollywood map, and little by little more notable roles came Mary Lynn’s way. She featured in the comedy film “Road Trip” (2000), and in 2002 made it into the cast of the romantic comedy film “Sweet Home Alabama”, starring Reese Witherspoon, Patrick Dempsey and Josh Lucas. 2003 was decisive for Mary Lynn’s career, as she was selected for the role of CTU systems analyst Chloe O’Brian in the TV action thriller series “24” (2003-2009), starring Kiefer Sutherland.
