Sonya Walger (born 6 June 1974) is a British actress. She is perhaps best known for her revealing role in the controversial HBO series Tell Me You Love Me (2007) and as Penelope "Penny" Widmore on ABC`s Lost Sonya Walger was born in London, England. She studied English Literature at Christ Church, Oxford, where she received a first class degree. Walger is fluent in English and Spanish as well as being conversational in French, due to the fact that her father is Argentinean.
In 1998 Sonya Walger played Becky in one episode of Midsomer Murders. She portrayed Flic in Goodnight Sweetheart in 1999 and appeared in two episodes of the crime/drama The Vice (TV series). She played Donna Barnes on the HBO TV series The Mind of the Married Man in 2001. On the US version of Coupling, which aired in 2003, she played Sally Harper. Other acting roles have included guest appearances on Lost as Desmond`s girlfriend, Penelope "Penny" Widmore and recurring roles on Sleeper Cell and CSI: NY. In 2004, Walger played Nicole Noone opposite Noah Wyle in The Librarian: Quest for the Spear. Surprisingly, given the strong dynamic between her and Wyle, she did not reprise that role in The Librarian: Return to King Solomon`s Mines. Subsequently, her name was deleted from the published cast of The Librarian: Quest for the Spear. In 2007, Walger starred in the controversial HBO series Tell Me You Love Me. The series gained notoriety even before the first episode had aired because of the frequency and extremely realistic nature of its sex scenes. Despite persistent rumours to the contrary, these scenes were eventually confirmed as simulated by several individuals intimately connected with the show. With reference to the handjob apparently performed by Walger on actor Adam Scott at the end of the pilot episode, show creator Cynthia Mort stated that "Sonya is not going to put her hands in a place that they shouldn`t be". Director Patricia Rozema and Walger`s co-stars Ally Walker and Jane Alexander also explicitly denied that any actual sex took place on set. Her most recent role is a supporting part as Michelle Dixon, the wife of Sarah Connor`s former fianc√© on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
