Since arriving in Hollywood from her native Australia, Baird has quickly attracted an American fan base via her portrayal of Dr. Meghan Doyle, head of the National Threat Assessment Command (NTAC), in Season 4 of The 4400. Produced by Paramount Network Television in association with American Zoetrope and Renegade 83, The 4400 was one of USA Network's top rated and best reviewed shows since its premiere in July, 2004, earning multiple Emmy nominations.
After earning a degree in journalism, Baird decided instead to pursue an acting career; she studied for three years in Sydney and three more in Paris before returning home and landing a lead role in All Saints. The medical drama became Australia's top-rated series and ran three seasons, after which she decided to pursue new opportunities in America.
