THE ROCKER

CHRISTINA APPLEGATE (Kim) has received critical praise for her strength and versatility as an Emmy winner ("Friends”), and a Tony® (Sweet Charity) and a Golden Globe® ("Samantha Who?”) nominated actress in theater, film and television.

After receiving accolades for her performance starring alongside Cameron Diaz and Selma Blair in the raucous comedy The Sweetest Thing, Applegate's range of skill landed her numerous roles in both independent and studio projects. Her feature film credits include Surviving Christmas for director Mike Mitchell, the DreamWorks comedy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Lionsgate's Wonderland, Miramax's View From the Top, and Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead.

This summer, Applegate continues production on her hit ABC television comedy "Samantha Who?” which debuted to primetime audiences in the fall of 2007. She returned to television, this time as a producer and star playing the title character, Samantha Newly, who woke up from an eight-day coma after a hit-and-run car accident with retrograde amnesia. As she pieces together her former life and continues to discover her "new” self, she learns that she may have been a horrible person prior to her accident. With only parts of her old life and memories intact, her character moves forward living and learning as she creates a new life for herself and readjusts to daily life. Applegate's performance in this role has been applauded by critics and fans and has garnered her nominations for a Golden Globe and a SAG Award™. In addition, the show won a People's Choice Award in the Favorite New TV Comedy category during its first season.

Applegate first gained widespread attention as the sexy and sarcastic Kelly Bundy on the long-running Fox series, "Married With Children.” After a very successful 11- season run, she furthered her television success by starring in her own NBC comedy series, "Jesse.” In 1999, the highly rated show garnered Applegate a People's Choice Award as Favorite Female Performer in a New Television Series and a Golden Globe nomination in the category of Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical.

In 2004, Applegate returned to television as a guest star on "Friends” as Rachel's (Jennifer Aniston) younger sister Amy. Her performance earned her an Emmy Award in the category of "Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series” for her role. She was nominated for an Emmy once again the following year for her witty performance.

In 2005, Applegate made her Broadway debut in the revival of Sweet Charity, in the starring role of Charity Hope Valentine. For her role, Applegate was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical as well as a Drama Desk Award in the category of Outstanding Actress in a Musical. Sweet Charity ended its run in January 2006. Her other stage credits include an appearance in John Cassavetes' Los Angeles production of The Third Day with Gena Rowlands, The Axeman's Jazz, Nobody Leaves Empty Handed, The Run-Through, and The Grass Harp.

In March of 2005, Applegate appeared in the telefilm, "James Patterson's Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas,” based on the author's best-selling novel. The project was directed by Richard Friedenberg.

Applegate currently resides in Los Angeles.
