LISA KUDROW's (Laura Sobel) characterization of the quirky and complex Pheobe Buffay on the NBC hit comedy series Friends has earned her an Emmy Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award, as well as nominations for a Golden Globe Award and an American Comedy Award.

Kudrow was also named Best Supporting Actress by the New York Film Critics and received an Independent Spirit Award nomination and a Chicago Film Critics Award nomination for her role in the Don Roos film The Opposite of Sex in 1998. In 2000, she was honored with a Blockbuster Award as well as an American Comedy Award nomination for her performance opposite Robert De Niro and Billy Crystal in the international hit Analyze This.

Her recent film credits include starring roles in Diane Keaton's Hanging Up, Nora Ephron's Lucky Numbers, the hit Romy & Michele's High School Reunion, Clockwatchers and Albert Brooks' Mother.

Although passionate about acting, the California native never considered it as a career until after her graduation from Vassar College with a degree in biology. She intended to go into the medical research field with her father, a renowned headache specialist. At that time, her brother's good friend, actor/comedian Jon Lovitz, encouraged her to pursue her dream. She began studying with improvisational instructor Cynthia Szigeti and acting teacher Ian Tucker, and in 1989 was accepted as a member of the famed Los Angeles improvisational group, The Groundlings.

Kudrow has the distinction of having appeared in two television series simultaneously: Friends and Mad About You.

She is currently shooting a film based on the infamous Wonderland Murders alongside Val Kilmer, who stars as porn star John Holmes.
