From 1996 to April 1997 she was played Joy Byrnes in the NBC sitcom, “Boston Common”, one of the main characters in the show alongside Alfred Molina, and considered her breakthrough role, as it brought her to the attention of other mainstream networks.

From 1998 to 2001, she played Sharon Carter in the sitcom “Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place,” which was shortened to “Two Guys and a Girl,” with Richard Ruccolo, Ryan Reynolds, and Traylor as the “girl.” Sharon was a confident character with commitment issues and was one of the main successes of the show as the audience liked her.

Much like what happened with “Boston Common,” the show’s ratings plummeted after it was rescheduled — the show originally aired Wednesday nights, but was moved to a late-night slot on Fridays.

In 2005 she played Tonya Avery in “Son of the Mask”, the ‘worst movie of the 21’st century so far,” by some critics. Needless to say it was poorly received and didn’t perform well at the box office. Traylor was nominated in the Worst Supporting Actress category for the Razzie Award in 2006, but was ultimately not nominated.

In 2005, Traylor performed with him on a USO tour, but Traylor disagreed with the allegations, claiming that he is a good person: “I understand the whole #MeToo thing, and a lot of terrible things have happened, and it had to change. But that’s not the case here.’
