As the bawdy and insightful counterpart to the lab-ful of "squints" on BONES, Michaela Conlin is a dynamic
presence; TV Guide's top critic Matt Roush has blogged about her being "good enough to deserve her own show."
Upon graduating with a B.F.A. degree from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, Conlin was chosen to be a part of
Bravo's documentary series "The It Factor," which focused on the lives of young actors in New York City. By the
time the series aired, Conlin had already paved her own way to Los Angeles and landed a starring role on the
drama "MDs." She followed with another lead role in "The D.A.," as an outspoken political consultant.
In film, Conlin has appeared as Adrien Brody's lover in the Sundance favorite "Love the Hard Way," and as
confidante to Robin Tunney in the acclaimed independent film "Open Window." She appears in "Enchanted" with Susan
Sarandon and Patrick Dempsey.
An Irish-Chinese-American, Conlin was born and raised in Allentown, PA, where she performed in community and
regional theater from a young age and was quite comfortable with that medium by the time she began performing
with the Atlantic Theater company and the Playwrights Horizon Theater School during college. The experience
eventually led to her studies with the Experimental Theater Wing's International Training Program in Amsterdam.
Conlin lives in Los Angeles.
