Minka Dumont Kelly born June 24, 1980 is an American actress. She starred in the NBC series Friday Night Lights as Lyla Garrity from 2006 to 2009. Minka Kelly was born in Los Angeles. She is the only child of former Aerosmith guitarist Rick Dufay and Maureen Kelly, an exotic dancer and single mother who often moved with her daughter to different communities, before settling in Albuquerque, New Mexico, by the time Minka Kelly was in junior high school. She is of Irish and French descent.

At 19 years, after graduating from Valley High School in Albuquerque, NM, Kelly returned to Los Angeles.

She ultimately decided against the procedure, leading to her being fired. However, the exposure to the medical field prompted her to attend school for a year to become a surgeon's assistant; afterward, she worked as a scrub tech. She spent four years in that vocation while also auditioning as an actress before landing the new NBC television drama Friday Night Lights, based on the high school football movie of that name. In the interim, she had small roles in movies and shows, including the film State's Evidence, and a recurring guest role on the TV sitcom What I Like About You.

In preparation for her role as cheerleader Lyla Garrity on Friday Night Lights, she trained with the Pflugerville High School cheerleading squad. Kelly received praise for her acting on the series, with The New York Times calling her performance "heartbreaking."

In 2010, ABC announced that Minka Kelly would join the cast of the upcoming remake of the television series Charlie's Angels.
