Forke, is an American actress known for her role as Alex Lambert on the NBC sitcom "Wings," and Mayson Drake on "Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman."

After moving to New York City and studying acting at the Lee Strasberg Institute, she made her feature debut in the 1991 film "Brain Twisters." Other roles would include the movies "Whispers in the Dark," "Heat" (1995) and "Kate's Addiction" (1998) in which she and actress Kari Wuhrer play woman in a lesbian love affair, and the TV-movies "Journey to the Center of the Earth" (1993), "Complex of Fear" (1993), "Bionic Ever After?"
