Adrianne Palicki graduated from Whitmer High School in 2001. She made her acting debut in the 2003 short Rewrite; she later had guest roles in Smallville, North Shore and Supernatural.
After a stint on the short-lived South Beach, Palicki joined the cast of NBC's Friday Night Lights, as Tyra Collette. She stayed with the show until the end of the third season, but she returned for two episodes in its fifth and final season. In 2010, she joined the cast of the critically-acclaimed Fox series Lone Star, although its low ratings meant the show's cancellation after only two episodes.
Palicki also starred in films such as Popstar, Legion, and the remake of Red Dawn.
