Bree Walker KPRI

Established and well into her career at the ABC affiliate KGTV Channel 10 in San Diego, after previously holding her hands covered inside a pair of glove-like prothetic ones, Walker decided to go public with her ectrodactyly. She continued her newscasting career at KGTV with them now clearly visible, then moved to the KPRI FM rock station. She started her television career as a consumer advocate reporter at KGTV in 1980.

Bree Walker Movies and Shows

In acting, Walker has also dabbled, starring as herself in the end-of-the-world science-fiction thriller, Without Notice (credited as Bree Walker-Lampley but referred to as Bree Walker on screen), and in The Chase as a TV reporter, Wendy Sorenson. She also guest-starred to talk about her condition in an episode of the PBS children’s series, Reading Rainbow.

Walker found that no cast member has ectrodactyly while watching the 2003 season of Carnivàle, an HBO television series about a Depression-era carnival moving through the Dust Bowl. She applied for, made, auditioned, and won the role of Sabina the Scorpion Lady. During the 2005 season, her portrayal of Sabina appeared in three episodes. As the series probed societal views toward people with highly noticeable disabilities, she revealed her webbed hands. She based Sabina on characters she knew existed in the 1920s and 1930s carnival sideshows with names like “Lobster Girl” or “Lobster Boy.” These were typically the best jobs people with ectrodactyly could have, with most others being hidden away.

Walker extended her acting career in 2006 by appearing as an inspirational woman with ectrodactyly on the fourth-season premiere of Nip/Tuck.
