JESSICA BIEL (Lara) is a highly talented and diverse young woman. The same year she was named to People Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful" list, her soccer team went undefeated and won the league championship--all the while she was juggling a busy television and film career.

Last summer, Biel starred in the romantic comedy Summer Catch, starring Freddie Prinze, Jr. In addition, Biel continues to play Mary Camden on the popular WB television series 7th Heaven, the number one rated show on that network. This season Biel divides her time between the show and college, which she attends back East.

She made an impressive feature debut as the rebellious daughter in Victor Nunez's critically acclaimed film Ulee's Gold, with Peter Fonda. Selected as the Centerpiece Premiere for the 1997 Sundance Film Festival and presented at Cannes, the movie opened to glowing reviews. She also starred in the Disney holiday film I'll Be Home for Christmas, with Jonathan Taylor Thomas.

Biel initially pursued a career as a vocalist, performing in musical theatre. Starting at age 9, she starred in such productions as Annie, The Sound of Music and Beauty and the Beast. She eventually turned to modeling and commercial work. In 1994 she competed at the International Modeling and Talent Association's Annual Conference and won a scholarship to the Young Actor's Space in Los Angeles.
