Mallory studied drama in New York, 2011, being coached by some of the worlds best acting, accent, analysis, method and film teachers at some of the most renowned schools such as Stella Adler and T.Schreiber Studios.

After completing her studies, Mallory returned to Australia where it wasn’t long before she scored roles on a string of mini series hits. they included Channel nine’s "Howzat, Kerry Packers War," Channel ten’s "Mr & Mrs Murder" and Australian Broadcasting Commission's (ABC) "twenty something." However it was her role playing supermodel Helena Christensen on Channel 7's "Never Tear Us Apart" The untold story of INXS that proved she was making a name for herself among the Australian TV industry and in turn created a flutter of interest for the young actress in Los Angeles.

Mallory made the big move over to the US in mid 2013, only weeks later scoring her first recurring role of Caroline Huntington in ABCfamily's "Young and Hungry," shortly followed by the recurring role of Georgie Farlow in ABCfamily's hit show "Baby Daddy." That same year news broke that Mallory was to play the starring role of Madalena in ABC's fresh new comedy "Galavant," a musical fairytale with a twist.

"Galavan"t premiered on ABC on Sunday, January 4th to excellent ratings of 7.9 million making it TV’s top-rated comedy debut since "Black-ish."

Due to the success of the show, "Galavant" is now airing its second season in January 2016.
