Karissa Lee Staples stars in "Necessary Roughness" on USA Network as Conner McClane.

A small town girl from Maine, Staples found her passion for music and theater at the age of 14, performing throughout her state in community and professional theater productions. In 2004 she attended New York City's International Model and Talent convention and took home awards in the Sitcom Monologue and Television Commercial divisions.

A week before graduating high school, Karissa Lee Staples was crowned Miss Maine 2006. In addition to receiving the state talent award, she was the youngest contestant to compete at the 2007 Miss America Pageant, which was broadcast on CMT.

At 19, Staples moved to New York City to pursue her acting career. A few months later she landed a supporting role in the horror comedy teen thriller "Red Hook," earned a lead role in the original musical production "Hear Our Song" and was featured in a photo shoot for NYC fashion designer Laura Dahl as the face of her 2008 spring collection.

Staples then went on to play the role of Victoria for two seasons on the Canadian comedy series "What's Up Warthogs!" from 2011 to 2012.
