She is the daughter of Carol (Stromme), a teacher and singer, and Christopher Shelton, who worked as a director and producer. She has three sisters: Koren Shelton, Erin Shelton and Samantha Shelton. Both of her parents were involved in local theater projects, but as a teen, Marley was never interested in life on the stage. While at Eagle Rock High School, she was a varsity cheerleader, was voted Prom Queen and held part-time jobs at stores like Contempo and Wet Seal. Shelton first captured the attention of film-goers as "Margaret," Tobey Maguire's love interest, in New Line's critically acclaimed film "Pleasantville" (1998) and has continued to appear in roles that show her versatility as an actress including in Jerry Bruckheimer's "Eleventh Hour" (2008) on CBS. Shelton attended UCLA where she majored in Film and Theatre. She supported herself through small parts in feature films, television movies and episodic appearances. Her "hobby" grew into a passion while she studied acting with Larry Moss and, as a result, she decided to pursue a career as an actress. Shelton made her feature debut in "Grand Canyon" (1991). Since then, she has starred in numerous box office hits including "The Sandlot" (1993), "Never Been Kissed" (1999), "The Bachelor" (1999), "Valentine" (2001), "Sugar & Spice" (2001), "Bubble Boy (2001), "Just a Kiss" (2002), "Uptown Girls" (2003), "Don't Come Knocking" (2005), "Sin City" (2005), "Grindhouse" (2007), "Nixon" (1995), "Warriors of Virtue" (1997), "A Perfect Getaway" (2009), "W" (2008), "Women in Trouble and The Mighty Macs" (2009), "Elektra Luxx" (2010), "Scream 4" (2011) and "Decoding Annie Parker" (2013).
