Williams' character specializes in pathology and epidemiology and works under the supervision of Dr. Stephen Connor (Neal McDonough) whom she respects but is willing to challenge when they don't agree. "Natalie is passionate about her job as well as the people she is constantly trying to save," says Williams.
The daughter of actress Shannon Wilcox, Williams started her career in entertainment when she was a baby starring in commercials. But it wasn't until high school that she was discovered during a school play and got the acting bug. She is best known for her portrayal of Lindsay Dole on the hit drama The Practice, where she starred as one of the firm's partners and wife of head partner Bobby Donnell (Dylan McDermott). In 2000, Williams starred in the TV movie Flowers for Algernon, opposite Matthew Modine. Based on the novel by Daniel Keyes, the film recounted the love story of a developmentally disabled bakery worker (Modine) who becomes part of a lab experiment and falls in love with his researcher (Williams).
Williams made her feature-film debut in director Floyd Mutrux' There Goes My Baby, opposite Dermot Mulroney and Noah Wyle. On the small screen, Williams was a series regular on the television drama New York News with Mary Tyler Moore. She also starred in such TV movies as Mary and Tim, The Jim and Jennifer Stopla Story, Ron Silver's Lifepod and For Their Own Good (opposite Elizabeth Perkins and Laura San Giacomo). In addition she has guest-starred on numerous series, including NBC's Scrubs, NBC's Law & Order and Party of Five.
Williams resides in her native Los Angeles with her husband and three children. Her birthday is June 8.
