Moira Kelly is an American actress famous for her roles in the film ‘The Cutting Edge’, and the teen drama ‘One Tree Hill’. She provided the voice for Nala in the Disney animated musical film ‘The Lion King’ and its sequels ‘The Lion King II: Simba's Pride’ and ‘The Lion King 1½’. A native of New York, Kelly has been acting since she was a child. However, it was not her initial choice as a profession. Deeply religious, she grew up in a Catholic household and wanted to become a nun. It was only after performing in her high school’s production of ‘Annie’ in 1984 that she decided to pick acting over being a nun. In 1991, she made her screen debut in the miniseries ‘Love, Lies and Murder’. She had her big screen debut that year as well, in ‘The Boy Who Cried Bitch’. Over the course of her three-decade-long career, she has played memorable roles in TV shows like ‘To Have & to Hold’, ‘The West Wing’, and ‘Law & Order’. As a member of ‘The West Wing’ cast, Kelly was one of the recipients of the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series in 2001.
