With her engaging wit and impeccable comic timing, CHRISTINA APPLEGATE is translating her television success to film. Applegate garnered much praise for her performance starring alongside Cameron Diaz and Selma Blair in the raucous comedy "The Sweetest Thing.”

Applegate's versatility has landed her starring roles in a true- crime tale drama, and an indie comedy, both scheduled for release later this year. She will star in Lions Gates' "Wonderland” for director by James Cox, where Val Kilmer will star as John Holmes, with Kate Bosworth, Lisa Kudrow and Josh Lucas rounding out the cast. Applegate will also star alongside Johnny Knoxville in the indie "Grand Theft Parsons” for director David Caffrey. Inspired by a true story, the film follows Phil Kaufman (Knoxville), the road manager for Gram Parsons, as he steals the musician's body from the mortuary and races it to California in an attempt to fulfill a pact. Applegate will play Barbera, the fictitious ex-wife of Gram Parsons.

Applegate is currently in production on the Dreamworks' comedy "Surviving Christmas” for director Mike Mitchell opposite Ben Affleck.

Applegate will star as the female lead, a well-educated scientist daughter in the family "rented” by a rich record executive (Affleck) who is faced with spending the Christmas holiday by himself. The film is scheduled for a Christmas 2003 release. Applegate will star in "Prince Charming” opposite Martin Short for the TNT network. This fairy-tale revolves around a prince and his sidekick who are turned into frogs for all eternity or until the prince can convince a maiden to kiss and marry him.

Applegate first gained widespread attention as the sexy and sarcastic Kelly Bundy on the long-running Fox series, "Married With Children.” Her own wit and beauty shined through her character's ditzy antics, and after the show's very successful 11- season run, she furthered her television success by starring in her own NBC comedy series, "Jesse.” The highly rated show garnered Applegate a 1999 People's Choice Award as "Favorite Female Performer in a New Television Series,” a 1999 TV Guide Award as "Favorite Star of a New Series,” and a 1999 Golden Globe nomination in the category of "Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical.” Other film credits include: "Just Visiting,” "Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead,” "The Big Hit,”"Mafia!,” "Nowhere,” "Mars Attacks!” and "Kiss of Fire.”

Applegate's stage credits include a starring role opposite Gena Rowlands in John Cassavetes' Los Angeles production of The Third Day. Other theater credits include The Axeman's Jazz, Nobody Leaves Empty Handed, The Run-through and Grass Harp.

Christina currently resides in Los Angeles.
