  Biography  

 life and career
Parker was born in Maple Ridge, British Columbia, to parents who owned a retail seafood store. Parker and her younger brother Henry were raised on a commune in Pitt Meadows, B.C., which she described as "a hippie farm", and she began acting after 13 years at ballet school. After her uncle's agent took her on, she had parts in various Canadian television roles before studying with Vancouver's Gastown Actors' Studio after she graduated from high school.

Her breakthrough role was as the daughter of a lesbian military officer in the TV-movie Serving in Silence; she then won a Gemini nomination for her performance in the TV-movie Paris or Somewhere. She later won the Genie Award for best actress for playing a necrophiliac in Lynne Stopkewich's 1996 film Kissed; the controversial film served as her breakthrough to more mainstream films.

Parker has received much critical praise for her bravery in tackling difficult roles - the aforementioned role in Kissed; as a sympathetic lap dancer and paid escort in The Center of the World; and a female rabbi, Ari Hoffman, in Six Feet Under. In 2008, she starred in the CBS show Swingtown. She filmed a pilot for a series called The Wonderful Maladys, in which she was set to star as Sarah Michelle Gellar's older sister, but the series was not picked up.

She starred in the video for "Cold Love", a song by Cursive and The Good Life frontman Tim Kasher.

Parker will join the cast of the NBC mid-season show, The Firm, based on the 1991 novel by John Grisham and the 1993 film starring Tom Cruise. She will portray Abby McDeere, wife of Mitch McDeere. She will also make several appearances on the sixth season of the Showtime series Dexter.
