Television actress Robin Riker has proved prolific, appearing in more than 60 television programs since her screen debut in 1976 with a bit part on the World War II adventure series "Black Sheep Squadron" (formerly titled "Baa Baa Black Sheep"). Since this inauspicious beginning, Riker has plugged along, scoring one-offs and guest spots on a wide range of programs. However, her first noteworthy role came in 1984, when she was cast as the sassy waitress, Kelly Hall, on Showtime's daring family sitcom "Brothers." She appeared on the series for four seasons and earned two CableACE nominations for her efforts. Riker went on to snag cast positions on a string of sitcoms, from Chris Elliott's manchild-centered series, "Get a Life," to the garage-set Edward Asner vehicle, "Thunder Alley," to the family-friendly comedy "The Gregory Hines Show." Sadly, each proved short-lived. In 2000, Riker tried her hand at soap opera acting with a recurring role on the long-running daytime drama "Days of Our Lives." She'd take on soaps again in 2008, joining the cast of the Los Angeles-set "The Bold and The Beautiful." However, Riker is likely best known for her various guest spots on popular programs.

Notably, she played immoral public relations expert Candy Springtime on David E. Kelley's dramedy "Boston Legal" and a backstabbing, spell-spouting mom on Joss Whedon's cult adored action-saga, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer."
