A world renown actress, MICHELLE PFEIFFER's career has included an array of interesting characters. Pfeiffer, raised in California's Orange County, first decided to pursue an acting career while attending Fountain Valley High School.

Through her production company Via Rosa, Pfeiffer likes to develop her own projects, such as the motion picture version of Jane Smiley's novel "A Thousand Acres," which co-starred Jessica Lange. She recently produced and starred in the upcoming "The Deep End of the Ocean" directed by Ulu Grosbard, co-starring Treat Williams and Whoopi Goldberg.

Most recently, Pfeiffer provided the voice for the character Tzipporah in "Prince of Egypt."
