Toledo, Ohio, U.S.
Adrianne Palicki (born May 6, 1983) is an American actress best known for her roles in Legion (2010), Red Dawn (2012) and in the television series Friday Night Lights (2006–2011). In 2013, she played Lady Jaye in G.I. Joe: Retaliation.
Palicki was born in Toledo, Ohio, the daughter of Nancy (née French) and Jeffrey Palicki. She has an elder brother, Eric, a comic book writer, who influenced her interest in comics. Her father is of Polish and Hungarian descent, while her mother is of English and German ancestry. She graduated from Whitmer High School in Toledo in 2001. She ran track in high school and was named runner-up for homecoming queen.
Palicki appeared in The WB pilot Aquaman as the evil Nadia. The pilot was not picked up for series by the CW network, a result of The WB and UPN network merger, which occurred while the pilot was being filmed. She also appeared as Kara/Lindsey Harrison in the Season 3 finale of Smallville. She was a series regular on the first three seasons of NBC's drama series Friday Night Lights, portraying Tyra Collette. In early 2011, she returned for the final two episodes of the series.
Palicki also starred in Supernatural as Jessica Moore, Sam Winchester's doomed girlfriend who is killed by a demon in its pilot episode. The character reappears in the Supernatural Season 2 episode, "What Is and What Should Never Be", and the Season 5 episode "Free To Be You and Me." Palicki also appeared as Judy Robinson in John Woo's unsold pilot, The Robinsons: Lost in Space. Palicki starred in Legion opposite Lucas Black. She made an appearance in the will.i.am music video "We Are the Ones" in support of 2008 presidential hopeful Barack Obama.
She was cast as Toni Mason in Red Dawn, the 2012 remake of the 1984 film Red Dawn. Although initially signed on to star in the Jamie Babbit horror film Breaking the Girl, due to delays in filming and production, and then scheduling conflicts, Palicki does not appear in the film. In 2010, Palicki joined the FOX television drama Lone Star, which was cancelled after two episodes, despite good reviews. In 2011, Palicki portrayed Wonder Woman in a 2011 pilot produced by David E. Kelley for NBC. The pilot was not picked up by NBC as a series.
She currently plays the recurring role of Dr. Samantha Lake in the sitcom About a Boy.
