Biography
Actress Megalyn Echikunwoke has bewitched the viewers of many TV shows with her knowing charm and stunning looks, showing up on everything from period sitcoms to sci-fi dramas. With a black Nigerian father and a white American mother, Echikunwoke was seemingly predisposed to a wide cultural and ethnic understanding from birth, an aspect of her personality that was bolstered by growing up on a Navajo Indian Reservation. At 14 she attended an arts-oriented summer camp, where she was discovered by her manager while performing a monologue. By 15, Echikunwoke had been cast in the mini-series Creature, and her family moved to L.A. She found regular work, soon scoring a recurring role on the first season of 24 as Nicole Palmer. She also made guest appearances on shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Veronica Mars, and starred in a series called Like Family. She played a recurring character on That '70s Show in 2004, before signing on to play the grown-up version of Isabelle Tyler on the sci-fi series The 4400. She stayed with the show for two seasons, after which she joined the cast of the 2008 drama Fix.
