ALICIA SILVERSTONE (Lynn) first achieved worldwide acclaim as Cher, the quintessential Beverly Hills teenager with a heart of gold in the hit feature film Clueless. Since then, she continued to expand her horizons both as an actress and as a producer. She soon afterwards set up her company, First Kiss Productions, where she produced and starred in Excess Baggage with Christopher Walken and Benicio Del Toro. First Kiss also produced the award-winning animated television series Braceface, which garnered unprecedented ratings for the ABC Family Network in its prime Saturday morning time slot. First Kiss continues to be active in both feature films and television, currently producing an upcoming single-camera comedy series with Imagine Entertainment in development for the Fox Network, in which Silverstone will also star.

In addition to producing, Silverstone has continued to tackle roles ranging from superheroes to Shakespearean heroines, starting with Batgirl in the blockbuster Batman & Robin. She followed this by re-teaming with Walken opposite Sissy Spacek in the comedy Blast From The Past. Again embracing the unexpected, Silverstone next triumphed in the Shakespearean musical Love's Labour's Lost opposite Academy Award®-nominee Kenneth Branagh, who also directed.

In 2002, Silverstone forged ahead in yet another direction, making her Broadway debut as Elaine Robinson in the smash-hit comedy "The Graduate.” The production, in which she starred alongside Kathleen Turner and Jason Biggs, sold out upon opening through Silverstone's entire run, breaking Broadway box office records in the process.

On the heels of her triumphant run in "The Graduate,” Silverstone once again plunged head-first into unfamiliar territory: prime-time television. In the process, Alicia earned a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actress in a Television Comedy Series for her role as Kate Fox in NBC's Miss Match, created by Darren Star. In between episodes of Miss Match, she also found time to make a cameo appearance on the big screen as villainess Heather Jasper-Howe in Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed.

Silverstone was born in San Francisco, but spent much time in England, the native country of her parents. Her rise to fame began in 1992 when, after a guest appearance as Fred Savage's "dream girl” on The Wonder Years, she landed the leading role in The Crush. Silverstone's performance in the film caught the eye of the rock group Aerosmith, who quickly cast her in their next three videos, each of which earned numerous MTV Video Awards. The first of these, "Cryin',” was voted Best Video of All Time. 

The busy actress soon added more credits to her resume with leading roles in the Showtime movie The Cool And The Crazy, alongside Jeff Goldblum and Christine Lahti in Tri-Star's science fiction thriller Hideaway, and subsequent starring roles in The Babysitter and Alain Corneau's love story Le Nouveau Monde. These culminated in Silverstone's star-making turn in Clueless.

In addition to her 2003 Golden Globe Nomination, Alicia has earned a total of four MTV Movie Awards as well as a Blockbuster Award, Nickelodeon Award, American Comedy Award and the prestigious National Board of Review Award. Last year she was named Cosmopolitan Magazine's "Fun Fearless Female Of The Year” for 2004.
