Mini Bio (1)

Dallas Malloy was born Christmas Day and became a piano virtuoso at 6 years old. She grew up performing, also as a violist, writing music, poetry, and novels. As a teen, Dallas fell in love with acting, bodybuilding, and boxing.

She made boxing history at 16 when she became the first female boxer in the U.S. to have a sanctioned amateur bout, and win by unanimous decision. Until then, the U.S. Boxing Federation excluded females, so she filed a discrimination suit with the help of the ACLU, and forced them to set up a women's division. She won in court, and in the ring-by unanimous decision. She later portrayed herself in the opening of Jerry Maguire, boxing towards the camera as Tom Cruise narrates her true story.

Later she returned to her original love, bodybuilding, and won numerous titles including NPC Ms. California Championships, NPC Tournament of Champions, Venice Best Back Award, and Best Posing Awards. She is no longer bodybuilding, but maintains a smaller athletic physique, in order to play a wider variety of acting roles.

She studied the Stanislavski Method with Jamie Paolenetti at Atwater Playhouse. She has had extensive theater training, and played 7 different roles in Eavesdropper, LA's longest running play. She played the role of "Queenie", the outspoken drag queen inmate in the gritty prison drama: Fortune and Men's Eyes, and "Franny," in Balm in Gilead, at the Underground Theater.

Film roles include Jerry Maguire, The ABCS of Death, Rule of Law, So Far So Kush, Dragon Slayerz, Postcards, and Ring Girls, an ESPN documentary on boxing. She is the subject of French documentary I Am Dallas Malloy.

In television, she has guest starred or been featured on True Blood, Burning Hollywood, Jimmy Kimmel Live, 1000 Ways to Die, Inside Edition and Conan. She had a major guest starring role on Eli Stone "Two Ministers." Rarely achieved, she has had numerous roles written in for her due to her unique qualities and out-of-this-world talent as a champion show stopper. She is developing a stage show combining her many unique talents.

She is producing and starring in the film 3rd and Goal, in development, written by Vicky Neal, about the first female quarterback in the NFL.

Trivia (1)
