Marin Hinkle originally wanted to be a professional ballerina, but she had to give up that dream and go for acting after sustaining an ankle injury at age 16. However, before going into acting she worked with KFDA-TV (a CBS-affiliated television station licensed to Amarillo) from 1990-1994.
Her acting career kicked off in 1994 when she played Juliet in Romeo and Juliet at the Lansburgh Theatre in Washington DC. She also played Kuroko and was an understudy for Miranda in The Tempest that ran from November to December 1995, at the Broadhurst Theatre.

The series is centred around a divorced father and a soon-to-be divorced mother who met fell in love and began a romantic relationship which is always disrupted and complicated by not just their life problems but also by their children.
She appeared in a total of 83 episodes but was, however, gradually phased out of the show before it eventually stopped airing, this may probably be as a result of her commitments to her new role as Samantha Bowers in the NBC drama series Deception.
Marin Hinkle has also appeared in several movies like Dark Blue, Frequency, I Am Sam, The Next Big Thing, Chocolate for breakfast, Killing Cinderella, I’m Not Rappaport and lots more.
In 2005, Hinkle took to the stage again, this time as Miss Julie, in the play Miss Julie. In 2008, she starred in The Haunting of Molly Hartley and Quarantine. She has also made several guest appearances on Law & Order, Without a Trace, Spin City, House, ER.
