Sheila Kelley

A remarkable talent who brings experience and grace to all her projects, Sheila Kelley is a performer who embodies the very femininity actresses covet and strive for. Inspired by her role in Dancing at the Blue Iguana, a gritty, unapologetic story about women who make their living as strippers (which she also co-wrote and produced), Sheila discovered the natural sexual power of stripping. In April 2001 she began teaching her stripping technique in a class called the S Factor out of her home. So successful were these classes that Sheila was forced to hire more instructors and move the classes to a new, larger studio, which opened in June 2003 in Los Angeles. To spread the movement to women across the country Sheila has written The S Factor: Strip Workouts for Every Woman. With an acting career spanning television, film, and theater, Sheila made her mark on the entertainment industry. Her longest television stint was four years on NBC's L.A. Law; Sheila also had a recurring role in the network's cornerstone series, E.R. Ever busy, she conquered Broadway in 1995 in My Thing of Love at the same time playing long-lost sister Charlie Bennet for the final season of Sisters. Her long line of film credits includes Cameron Crowe's Singles, Neil Labute's Nurse Betty, and a co-starring role alongside Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney in One Fine Day. Sheila can next be seen alongside Nicholas Cage in the new Warner Brothers film Matchstick Men. Sheila Kelley lives in Los Angeles with her husband, Richard Schiff (of The West Wing) and their two children.
