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 rumors to the contrary, these scenes were eventually confirmed as simulated by several individuals intimately connected with the show.

Recent roles include a supporting part as Michelle Dixon, the wife of Sarah Connor’s former fiancé on Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and as Olivia Benford, wife of FBI agent Mark Benford (Joseph Fiennes) in the ABC TV Series FlashForward.
