In 2007, Walger starred in the controversial HBO series Tell Me You Love Me. The series gained notoriety even before the first episode had aired because of the frequency and extremely realistic nature of its sex scenes. Despite persistent rumors to the contrary, these scenes were eventually confirmed as simulated by several individuals intimately connected with the show. With reference to the handjob apparently performed by Walger on actor Adam Scott at the end of the pilot episode,[2] show creator Cynthia Mort stated that "Sonya is not going to put her hands in a place that they shouldn't be."[3] Director Patricia Rozema and Walger's co-stars Ally Walker and Jane Alexander also explicitly denied that any actual sex took place on set.

Sonya also currently has the part of Penelope "Penny" Widmore, Desmond Hume's long lost wife in the hit ABC TV series Lost and as Olivia Benford, a surgeon and wife of FBI agent Mark Benford (Joseph Fiennes) in the ABC TV series FlashForward.
