Madison McKinley A Fresh Face Filmography
Madison McKinley may be the hottest, freshest new face of the year. She definitely made waves and raised eyebrows, this past season, as a contestant on ABC's The Bachelor.
McKinley's Hollywood acting career began all the way back in 2007, when she landed a single-episode role, as the “Dutch Cousin,” on NBC's extremely popular show, 30 Rock. Her entry into acting was with some of the industry's heavy-hitters, such as Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey and Tracy Morgan. That episode, “Greenzo,”
McKinley's next role was in 2009, as a bartender on NBC’s drama, Kings, which was a loose and modern interpretation of the story of King David. Although a small role as a bartender, she was fortunate enough to work with the Golden Globe winning actor, Ian McShane, of HBO’s Deadwood. Within two years of starting her acting career, Madison had worked with award winners, journalists and politicians. That same year, McKinley landed a 2-episode role, as Mrs. Nelson, on FX’s critically acclaimed and Golden Globe nominated Rescue Me. There, she had the honor to share the screen with Dennis Leary, another Hollywood heavy-hitter.
In 2010, McKinley continued her success, and appeared in USA Network's White Collar. This cable gem starred the up-and-coming Matt Bomer, as well as the perennial favorite, Tiffani Thiessen. Madison continued to learn from some of the best in the business.
McKinley's had always worked on acclaimed shows, and with some of the biggest names in the industry. This trend continued in 2011, when she made two appearances on TBS’s Image Award-winning Are We There Yet? This leads us to her most recent television appearance, on DIRECTV’s acclaimed Damages, where she was honored to grace the same stage as Glenn Close, Rose Byrne and Dylan Baker. In this episode, for the first time in her career, McKinley appeared topless, which sent waves through Hollywood and the blogosphere.
McKinley also made a move from television to movie in 2011, and, in stark contrast to her topless appearance on Damages, she played a principal role in the Smurfs 3D Movie. Here, she added to her impressive list of co-stars and worked with Hank Azaria, Neal Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, Sofia Vergara, and even Tim Gunn. Few actors can say they have worked with such stars in a lifetime, let alone one movie.
Madison McKinley's acting career has been relatively short, but she has been honored with roles on critically acclaimed and award-winning shows, and she has also shared the stage and screen with some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Madison continues to act and to seek roles that she can truly learn from. Enews-of.com
