CHRISTINA APPLEGATE (Veronica Corningstone) has been translating her television success into a fast-growing film career. Her recent film credits include starring roles in the true-life drama "Wonderland,” with Val Kilmer and Lisa Kudrow; the high-flying comedy "View From The Top,” with Gwyneth Paltrow and Mark Ruffalo; and the romantic comedy "The Sweetest Thing,” with Cameron Diaz and Selma Blair. This fall, Applegate stars opposite Ben Affleck and James Gandolfini in the holiday comedy "Surviving Christmas,” due out in November 2004. Her upcoming films also include the independent features "Employee of the Month,” opposite Matt Dillon and Steve Zahn, and "Grand Theft Parsons,” with Johnny Knoxville.

Next year, Applegate will make her Broadway debut starring in the title role of the classic musical "Sweet Charity.” The revival comes to Broadway in April 2005.

Applegate won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series in 2003 for her performance as Rachel Green's (Jennifer Aniston) self-centered sister Amy on the hit series "Friends.” She reprised the role in the series' final season. However, Applegate is perhaps best known for her portrayal of the outrageous Kelly Bundy on the long-running Fox series "Married… With Children.” Debuting in 1987, the show broke new ground as a situation comedy with the antithesis of the then-typical sitcom family at its center.

When "Married…With Children” ended its 11-year run in 1997, Applegate segued into the title role of her own NBC series, called "Jesse,” which she also produced. For her work on the show, she earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Comedy, and won a People's Choice Award for Favorite Female in a New Television Series. 

Over the years, Applegate had also starred in a number of feature films. Her earlier film credits include Stephen Herek's comedy hit "Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead”; Walter Hill's "Wild Bill,” starring Jeff Bridges; Tim Burton's sci-fi comedy "Mars Attacks!,” as part of an all-star ensemble cast; Gregg Araki's "Nowhere”; "The Big Hit,” opposite Mark Wahlberg and Lou Diamond Phillips; and Jim Abraham's comedy spoof "Jane Austen's Mafia!”.
