BLACK AND WHITE

At age three, BROOKE SHIELDS made her first stroll down the catwalk; at eight she landed her first film role in the mystery "Alice, Sweet Alice;" and at twelve she became a household name portraying a pre-teen prostitute in Louis Malle's controversial feature, "Pretty Baby." Shields currently brings her charisma to the title role of NBC's "Suddenly Susan," now in its third season, for which she earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Comedy Series.

A triple threat actress who has displayed her talents in film, television and theater, Shields has starred on stage in the Broadway revival of "Grease," at the UBU Repertory Theatre in "The Eden Cinema," and in "Love Letters" at the Canon Theatre in Los Angeles and at the New Mexico Repertory.

Born and raised in New York, Shields grew up in front of the camera as a child model and grew to become the "Face of the Eighties," as proclaimed by Time on her cover photo for the magazine. After "Pretty Baby," she went on to roles in "Endless Love," "Tilt," "King of the Gypsies," which reunited her with Susan Sarandon, "Wanda Nevada," with Henry and Peter Fonda, "Just You and Me Kid" with George Burns and "The Muppets Take Manhattan."

Additional credits include "Brenda Starr" opposite Timothy Dalton, "Speedzone" with John Candy, "Backstreet Dreams," "Un Amore Americano," "Freaked," "Running Wild" with Martin Sheen, and "Freeway" with Kiefer Sutherland and Reese Witherspoon.

Shields also made her mark in several television movies, including "After the Fall" with Christopher Plummer, "The Prince of Central Park" with Ruth Gordon, "Wet Gold" with Burgess Meredith, "The Diamond Trap" with Howard Hesseman and Twiggy, "Legends of The West" with Jack Palance, and "Quantum Leap: The Leaping of The Shrew."

She also starred in "I Can Make You Love Me: The Story of Laura Black," after which Shields did a public service announcement that generated thousands of calls to the National Victims Center requesting assistance and information. She also starred in the mini-series, "Nothing Lasts Forever" and in an episode of HBO's "Tales From The Crypt" entitled "Came from the Dawn."

Shields has recently completed roles in the Sundance favorite, "The Misadventures of Margaret" to be released by MGM and "The Weekend" co-starring with legendary actress Gena Rowlands. Shields appeared in New Line's "The Bachelor," with Chris O'Donnell and Renee Zellweger.

A 1987 Princeton graduate with honors in French Literature, Shields continues to lend her voice and support to issues involving children's welfare and education.
