Kelly Overton (born August 28, 1978) is an American actress, screenwriter, director, and producer.
Of Cherokee descent, Overton grew up in Wilbraham, Massachusetts, and studied at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City, where she graduated with their highest honor, The Charles Jehlinger Award.
She has performed off-Broadway, in regional Shakespeare, and on several TV shows. She began in national television in 2000 in the role of Rainn Wilkins on several seasons of All My Children and then in 2002 returned to theater on Broadway where she debuted in the original stage cast of The Graduate as an understudy for several roles, eventually replacing Alicia Silverstone in the role of Elaine Robinson, opposite Kathleen Turner and Jason Biggs. After five years in New York she moved to Los Angeles, where she has worked in film and TV. In 2008, with husband Judson Pearce Morgan, she wrote, directed, produced and starred in The Collective. She plays Christie Monteiro in the 2010 film adaptation of the fighting game series Tekken. She recently appeared in the HBO series True Blood as werewolf Rikki Naylor.
Of her role as Andrea Barton in the Numb3rs episode "Hollywood Homicide", reviewer Todd Mason of TV Guide wrote, "Kelly Overton excelled in her small role...". Of her directorial debut with the film The Collective, reviewer Joshua Tanzer wrote, "The Collective is beautifully shot, well crafted", while Farley Elliott of LAist wrote, "The story, while not frighteningly original, is definitely captivating, and the directing is superb. Kelly Overton, who helped to pen the film, is captivating and you really want to see her succeed".
Overton married fellow actor Judson Pearce Morgan in March 2004. In January 2011, Kelly gave birth to their daughter, Ever Evangeline Morgan. The couple decided to separate in 2012 and even filed for divorce but then reconciled during the end of 2014.
