Dorian Brown as Kristen | Wilfried on FX

Dorian Brown


Dorian Brown plays “Kristen,” Ryan's misanthropic sister. She is a single, working-mom and feels entitled to tell Ryan how to live his life. 

Career Highlights

In addition to starring as "Kristen" on FX’s Wilfred, Dorian was just recently seen with a leading role in the movie, Home Run, directed by The Walking Dead’s David Boyd. She plays "Emma," a single mom trying to protect her son from her past. Provident Films and Samuel Goldwyn Films released Home Run in April 2013. 

Brown was also seen as a series regular in ABC Family’s Roommates, as well as appearances on Two and A Half Men, Supernatural, Bent, Romantically Challenged, Accidentally on Purpose, Cold Case, Psych and NCIS. Her other film credits include 2nd Take, directed by John Suits and Mercy, directed by Patrick Hoelck. 

Brown grew up in South Florida dancing, running track and performing in the local community theatre. She quickly became Little Palm Theatre’s choreographer as well as stage manager. She went off to Hofstra University to earn her BFA. One of her proudest performances to this day is playing the role of "Catherine" in John Olive’s Standing On My Knees, directed by Jean Dobie Giebel. Dramatically different from "Kristen," Brown loves spending time with her husband and son as well as volunteering her time. They volunteer locally as well at an elementary school in Namibia. Brown currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband and son.
