An acting chameleon, Emily Nelson ("Shameless" / "Superstore" / "GLOW" / MADE OF HONOR), stars as the ominous, working class neighbor 'Margaret' opposite Oscar winner Mahershala Ali (MOONLIGHT) in the 8-episode third season of HBO's critically acclaimed anthology crime drama "True Detective," (Sundays at 9:00pm) created by Nic Pizzolatto. As one of the last people to see the children alive, she could just be the prime suspect no one ever expected! Born in Massachusetts, Nelson became a performer at an early age and graduated with a B.F.A. from the prestigious drama department of Carnegie Mellon University. When she's not busy in front of the camera, Nelson teaches and mentors other emerging artists with The David Kagan Studio, International Academy of Film and Television, Young Storytellers, Urban Anthropology Project and more. She now owns and operates her own acting studio ACEN.
