Early life 
Procter was adopted as an infant and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina. She was three years old when her parents William Procter (a general practitioner) and Barbara Jones (a volunteer worker) divorced. She has an older brother, Whit, who is also adopted.
She is a graduate of Ravenscroft School in Raleigh. While at East Carolina University she became a member of Alpha Delta Pi sorority. After she received her degrees in journalism and dance at East Carolina, she was employed as a television weather anchor at WNCT-TV in Greenville, North Carolina.
After the move to Los Angeles, her father provided the funds for acting school for two years. Before even graduating, she had already landed a number of small roles in films such as Jerry Maguire (1996) and Breast Men (1997), where she appeared along with David Schwimmer and Chris Cooper. During the 1995–96 season (season 3) of Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, she portrayed Lana Lang. She briefly appeared in the 1997 TV movie The Dukes of Hazzard: Reunion! as Mavis. She was also in Body Shots as Whitney.
She is a good friend of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation actress Jorja Fox, who persuaded her to try for the role of Calleigh Duquesne in CSI: Miami, which ran on American television from 2002 to 2012.
Personal life 
Procter prefers to keep her personal life private. She often enjoys taking holidays with her sister, a professional chef. She jogs for two hours a day, five days a week, and has taken part in various triathlons and marathons. An avid poker player, she learned to play the game as a child when her father would play a game called 'penny poker' with her, and has participated in at least one celebrity poker tournament. Procter also sings in a 1980s cover band called White Lightning, which is now renamed Motion. Procter has volunteered as an actress with the Young Storytellers Program, and helps out at homeless shelters.
Procter is very interested in interior decoration and antiques, putting this to practical use in the 1921 Spanish-style home that she owns in Los Angeles. During the 2007 writers' strike, she designed a home for a friend in Saint John, U.S. Virgin Islands. In People magazine's Country Special of March 2009, it was revealed she decorated Kenny Chesney's home in Malibu. She has also acted as a guest judge on the Home & Garden Television show Summer Showdown.
Procter and her boyfriend, musician Paul Bryan welcomed a daughter Philippa Frances (called "Pippa") on December 8, 2010. Her pregnancy was not written into the ninth season of CSI: Miami, although her appearances on the show were limited for the entire season.
