Montgomery's breakout role came when she was tapped to star as Marilyn Monroe in the CBS mini-series Blonde. Marilyn was a part that she was fated to play. Montgomery had developed a fascination with Monroe during childhood and read the screen legend's biography at age 12. When the opportunity to explore the life of America's classic sex symbol was presented to her, Montgomery was more than up to the challenge, and received international acclaim for her take on the iconic Monroe.
On the big screen, Montgomery has co-starred in films such as The Other Sister, with Diane Keaton, Life and Dead Man on Campus. She recently wrapped production on the independent film 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover, opposite Jennifer Westfeldt and Paul Schneider.
On television, Montgomery continues her role as FBI agent Sam Spade in the hit CBS show WITHOUT A TRACE, starring opposite fellow Australian Anthony LaPaglia, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Eric Close and Enrique Murciano. Additional television credits include a starring role in the series Glory Days.
In her spare time, Poppy Montgomery enjoys yoga, snowboarding, horseback riding and NOT cooking.
