Where you've seen Marley Shelton

Where you've seen her With 19 years in the business, Marley Shelton has played a wide range of roles, especially lately: "In the last couple of years, I was a lesbian anesthesiologist who is attacked by zombies [in both 'Grindhouse' movies], a basketball coach/nun [the upcoming 'Our Lady of Victory'], a hard-nosed FBI agent [TV's 'Eleventh Hour'] and a vagabond hiker/possible murderer ['A Perfect Getaway']." She calls her two films with Robert Rodriguez ("Sin City" and "Grindhouse" installment "Planet Terror") particularly inspirational to her. "I've learned so much from him. He's such a limitless artist. He writes, directs, shoots, edits, designs props. When your leader does that, it's like, 'Well then, why should I limit myself?' He instills a feeling of 'Why not?'
