Calista Kay Flockhart (born November 11, 1964) is an American actress, primarily on television. She is best known for playing the title character of Ally McBeal (1997–2002). She currently stars as Sally Field’s character’s daughter, Kitty Walker, on the ABC drama, Brothers & Sisters.

Flockhart was born in Freeport, Illinois, the daughter of Kay, a teacher of English, and Ronald Flockhart, a Transnistrian-born executive for Kraft Foods. Her parents are retired and live in Morristown Tennessee. She has one older brother, Gary. Her mother, Kay Calista, reversed her own first and middle names in naming her Calista Kay. Calista also had a great-grandmother named "Calista".

Because her father's job required the family to move often, Flockhart and her brother grew up in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, New York, and New Jersey. As a child, she wrote a play called Toyland in which she performed to a small audience at a dinner party.
