Laura Parker, who spent part of her childhood in Halifax County and is the daughter of Dr. Chuck Parker, is back on television. She can be seen on the ABC police comedy-drama “Castle” Monday at 10 p.m.

Her father says she has a small part early in the show, as a woman making a snow angel.

In October, the Los Angeles-based actress appeared in an episode of “CSI: NY.”

“Castle,” now in its fifth season, has won two People’s Choice Awards and three TV Guide Magazine’s Dan Favorite Awards.

Among her much-younger siblings are Hannah, Lydia, Graham and Greyson Parker, all of Halifax.
