Kelly attended Connetquot Senior High School and during her time there was part of a production of “Annie”. She was supposed to have a small role, but was then given the title role due to illness of the main actress. This would lead her to change from her initial aspiration of becoming a nun to becoming an actress. She would matriculate in 1986, and afterwards attended Marymount Manhattan College.

Moira made her professional acting debut in 1991, in the television movie “Love, Lies and Murder” in which she played a teenage murderer. This led her to have small roles in various films such as “Billy Bathgate”, and “The Boy Who Cried Bitch”. Afterwards, she was cast in the film “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me” and later in the year, starred in the romantic comedy “The Cutting Edge”. Her net worth started increasing, especially when she then played opposite Robert Downey, Jr. in the film “Chaplin”. More opportunities appeared for her, and she was cast in “Little Odessa”, “With Honors” and “Dangerous Beauty”.

She then tried her hand at voice acting, becoming a part of “The Lion King” as Nala, reprising her role in “The Lion King II: Simba’s Pride”, and “The Lion King 1 1/2.”. All of these projects continued to build her net worth. She also forayed into independent film, starring in “Entertaining Angels: The Dorothy Day Story” playing the title character. She also starred in “The Safety of Objects” alongside Glenn Close. In 1998, she played Helen Keller in the television movie “After the Miracle”.

Her next project would be the drama “The Have & to Hold” which she appeared opposite Jason Beghe. She was then cast in the first season of “The West Wing” as Mandy Hampton. In 2003, she became a part of “One Tree Hill”, and it also led her to direct two episodes of the show. She stopped being a regular cast member during the fifth season, but retained her role until the sixth season finale. Other projects she had during this period include “Heroes” and “Numb3rs”, and she also continued to have film roles including “A Smile as Big as the Moon” and “Remember the Daze”, adding steadily to her net worth.

For her personal life, it is known that Moira married businessman Steve Hewitt in 2000, and they have two children. She is a Catholic, and apparently needed to consult priests for some of her roles.

TV ShowsOne Tree Hill, The West Wing,
1An audience is going to be able to find a little bit of Dorothy in themselves and relate to this woman. Roles like Dorothy Day are so rare in Hollywood.
2I went to Marymount College in New York City with a lot of kids whose parents paid their way, and I wouldn't even have thought of asking my parents - they couldn't afford it, not with six kids!
3Money's not important to me. Movie star acknowledgement is not important to me. I don't want to be a big studio actress. I don't want to be in the limelight.
4There are a lot of battles to face, and if I didn't have that religious core - that base to turn to - I would be truly lost.
5They used to say I was a younger Winona Ryder and that always made me laugh, because I'm three years older than she is.
6We have a world that is searching for answers, that is searching for a way back to spirituality.
7We're not all called to be Dorothy Day.
8You know, I like playing around with my voice and trying all different types of kooky voices.
9I'd love to have the opportunity to sing in a Disney movie.
10I've been told before, and I tend to believe it, I'm not like most actresses out there.
11My dream is to eventually open a children's theatre.
12Now I listen to all kinds of music except rap, which all sounds the same to me.
13Nudity... I have to say I will never do it again.
14I like to go rock scrambling.
15I never had to pound the pavement and really struggle after college.
16I think to be in politics you have to have the taste for blood on that.
17I truly believe that God brought this, Dorothy Day script to me, because for a long time up until I was in eight grade - I wanted to be a nun.
18I used to babysit a lot, and I used to be a nanny.
19I find nothing wrong with the naked body.
20I get a lot of recognition for my voice. That always surprises me.
21I grew up mostly with classical, big band, and a lot of Irish music - I really didn't start listening to rock and roll until I was maybe sixteen.
22I just want the opportunity to continue to do great films, play great characters and work with great people.
23I just wanted to be married and to be happy ever after.
24First of all - I only believe what I see.
25Hollywood is a world all its own.
26I can cry at the drop of the pin. But comedy is hard for me; it's the timing.
27I did everything I could to stay in college and pay my own way, so I think that if success hadn't come so quickly, I would still be pursuing it.
28I don't even own a television. I'm proud of that.
29A few months after graduation I was working in films. It took off pretty quick.
30Growing up Catholic has been a gift.
31I do have the freedom to choose what I want to do and I'll continue to do that.
32But what I like to sing mostly is blues and cabaret style.
33Children are so creative and imaginative that they just bring you to life all over again.
2During the shooting of the film, The Cutting Edge (1992), she spent over two months in figure skate training with her co-star, D.B. Sweeney. They became close friends and remain so to this day.
3Was cast by director James Gray in Little Odessa (1994) because he was impressed by her performance in Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992).
4Her husband is a Texas businessman and she has two children by him. Her daughter is named Ella and was born in 2001, her son is named Eamon and was born in 2003.
5Was originally cast as Kit Keller in A League of Their Own (1992), but hurt her ankle on the set of The Cutting Edge (1992). The role of Kit was given to Lori Petty.
6She was initially contracted to play Polly Pry, the female lead in Trey Parker's Cannibal! The Musical (1993) but pulled out because she feared it would damage her serious movie career.
7She narrated the audio book for "jacob have I loved".
8When cast in David Lynch's Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me (1992), she came home to get permission from her priest to do her first sexual scene.
9Listed as one of twelve "Promising New Actors of 1992" in John Willis' Screen World, Vol. 44.
