went directly from high school to study with Sanford Meisner at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York City and began her career in theatre. It wasn't long before she was discovered off-Broadway in plays such as Director Larry Aarrick's The Empire Builders and whisked off to the West Coast to begin her career in film and television. She quickly established herself as one of the most versatile and sought-after leading ladies on either coast. She has had starring roles in many films, including Emerald Forest (directed by John Boorman), They Live (directed by John Carpenter), and The Osterman Weekend (directed by Sam Peckinpah). Other highlights include Carny, Ticket to Heaven, A Different Story, and Phillip Noyce's Blind Fury. She has repeatedly proven her tremendous range and willingness to take risks in the world of independent features. She has worked with new and exciting directors such as Lawrence Harvey, Richard Elfman, and Sam Erwin to brilliantly create a myriad of obscure and unconventional characters to add to her wonderfully eclectic accomplishments. Meg is equally well known on television, having appeared in over 60 productions. She has starred in numerous movies of the week, most memorably, "To Catch a Killer," "Jim Jones: The Guyana Tragedy," "James Dean: Portrait of a Friend," and "Washington: Behind Closed Doors." Another of her critically acclaimed performances was in PBS's production of "The Scarlet Letter," in which she starred opposite John Heard and Kevin Conway. She has appeared in over 50 television series, including "Xena: The Warrior Princess" as the Goddess Hera, "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine," "Quantum Leap" (three-part), "Murder, She Wrote," "E.R.," and Phillip Noyce's "Hitchhiker." Meg has also enjoyed much success in the Los Angeles theatre scene, including director Robert Allen Ackerman's production of Extremities, the Los Angeles Theatre Center's premier production of Chekhov's The Three Sisters, as well as their production of Israel Horowitz's Strong Man's Weak Child and Stein Wenge's King Lear.
