Marley Shelton biography

Scream 4

Marley Shelton

Date of Birth: April 12, 1974

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Shelton was introduced to the entertainment industry by her father, a commercial director.

She received her first taste of the celebrity lifestyle during a high school prom. Her date was her boyfriend at the time—Buffy actor Nicholas Brendon. He bought her 100 roses, wore a tux and drove a black convertible Mustang.

While studying English at UCLA, she supported herself through small parts in film and television. Her hobby grew into a passion while studying acting.

She made her feature debut in Grand Canyon (1991) which was soon followed by roles in television. Following work on the series Angel Falls, she landed work in telefilms such as Hercules in the Underground, A Friend to Die For and When Friendship Kills.

During the latter half of the '90s, Shelton decided to focus on feature films and was cast in major roles in movies like Nixon (1995), Warriors of Virtue (1997), Pleasantville (1998), Never Been Kissed (1999), The Bachelor (1999) and Valentine (both 2001). She has been working steadily ever since, in comedies like Bubble Boy (2001), Uptown Girls (2003) and dramas such as Sin City (2005), Grindhouse (2007) and the horror/thriller A Perfect Getaway (2009).

She also not only starred in but produced the short film, Protect-O-Man (1999), a black comedy directed by her father.

Shelton married producer Beau Flynn in 2001.
