Character Bio

Kalinda Sharma photo
Kalinda Sharma is the firm's in-house private investigator. Kalinda previously worked for Peter for three years. He fired her after accusing her of working two jobs. Kalinda is unflappable, inscrutable, fiercely private, and occasionally physically violent. She is exceptionally good at her job, although her tactics are not always strictly legal. She is often the key to the firm winning whatever case they are working on, usually at the 11th hour.

She generally does not work well with others. Although Kalinda doesn't let many people close to her, she becomes good friends with Alicia, with the aid of tequila shots, and she feels protective of Alicia. After becoming good friends, Alicia finds out Kalinda had a one-night stand with Peter before she knew Alicia, damaging their friendship but over time, the two start to reconcile. Kalinda has a cynical, misanthropic outlook on human behavior.

Kalinda is bisexual and has a series of relationships through the show, mostly with women and often because they can help her with a case. She often plays a major part in winning cases for Lockhart & Gardner, although not always ethically or legally.
Very little is known about her when the series begins, and she is incredibly secretive about her past. The character's signature wardrobe piece has become a pair of knee-high boots; the character initially wore pumps but Panjabi felt that boots "grounded her in the character".

In season 4, it is revealed that Kalinda has an abusive husband called Nick Saverese, played by Marc Warren.
