Born in Shreveport, Louisiana, O'Neil began her career as a model and cover girl before turning to acting. She first appeared in television commercials, then was cast in many popular television series. She played Dr. Maggie "Mo" Sullivan in the early first-season episode "Black Day at Bad Rock" of The A-Team (NBC, 1983) and was popular enough to be one of the very few guest characters to return in a later episode (the second-season episode "Deadly Maneuveres", 1983).

Other appearances include as nightclub singer Julie Heller in the episode "Murder! Murder!" of The Eddie Capra Mysteries (1978, NBC), as Dorothy Fulton in Hart To Hart (1979, ABC), as female stunt woman "Charlie" in the episode of the same name in the first season of The Fall Guy (1981, ABC), in Remington Steele (1982), as conniving "other woman" Ashley Vickers in the pilot episode of Murder, She Wrote (1984, CBS), as a pushy reporter in the second-season episode "Catch Of The Day" in Riptide (1984, NBC), and as the owner of a travelling wild west rodeo show in the third-season Airwolf episode "Annie Oakley" (1985).

She portrayed the first female captain of an Enterprise-series starship (NCC-1701-C) in Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987, syndicated), in the episode "Yesterday's Enterprise" and the Klingon Kurak, in the episode "Suspicions" (1993). Later she guest-starred on Star Trek:DS9 as Cardassian Korinas in the episode "Defiant".

She also guest-starred in the Babylon 5 season-one episode "Believers" (1994) as "M'ola". Later on, she played the Earth Alliance President in the Babylon 5 TV movie Babylon 5: In the Beginning (1998). O'Neil's screen credits include The Legend of Nigger Charley (1972), The Gumball Rally (1976), Piranha II: The Spawning (1981), Ted & Venus (1991) and Titanic (1997). O'Neil received a Theatre World Award for her performance in the Broadway musical Two by Two with Danny Kaye.
