At 16 years old, Melanie Lynskey wowed audiences with her explosive portrayal of a teenage murderess in Peter Jackson's Academy Award-nominated Heavenly Creatures (1994), opposite Kate Winslet. Despite spending three years out of the limelight to attend university and re-locate from New Zealand to Los Angeles, Lynskey made a welcome return to the silver screen when she starred with Drew Barrymore and Anjelica Huston in the acclaimed EverAfter (1998), which was followed by roles in Detroit Rock City (1999), But I'm a Cheerleader (1999), Coyote Ugly (2000), Snakeskin (2001), Sweet Home Alabama (2002), Abandon (2002) and Shattered Glass (2003). She's since worked alongside some of the industry's most celebrated actors and directors, gaining strong notices for her performances in Clint Eastwood's Flags of Our Fathers (2006), Sam Mendes's Away We Go (2009), Steven Soderbergh's The Informant! (2009) and Jason Reitman's Best Picture Oscar nominee Up in the Air (2009/I). In addition, Lynskey has become a regular fixture on the small screen with guest appearances on "The Shield" (2002), "Psych" (2006) and "The L Word" (2004). However, she's best known to television audiences for her endearing portrayal of Rose - Charlie Sheen's next-door neighbor and frequent stalker - on the Emmy Award-winning "Two and a Half Men" (2003).
