After a stint as a TV weather girl in her home state of North Carolina, this Southern beauty segued into acting with a number of blink-and-you-missed-them movie parts. But a recurring role as a White House lawyer on the West Wing won Procter a role on CSI: Miami as a no-nonsense ballistics expert who just happens to be a bombshell. She has since made occasional big-screen appearances, including Martin Lawrence's Big Momma's House 2 and the indie comedy Barry Munday. Off-screen, Procter is more of a girlie girl who enjoys interior decorating and working with various homeless charities.
