Facts

Christina Applegate's career began at the age of three months when she appeared in her mother's arms on the daytime soap Days of Our Lives. After eight years away from the industry she made a small turn in the little-seen film Jaws of Satan (1979). From there she did a series of guest spots on such TV series as Quincy, Amazing Stories and Family Ties before receiving her first break when cast as a regular on the short-lived series Heart of the City (ABC, 1986-87).

Once she had become established as the dumb blonde sexpot on Married... With Children, the actress sought to stretch by appearing in such features as Streets (1990) and Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead (1991). In the latter, Applegate essayed an enterprising teenager who fakes a resume and lands an important job while her mother is out of town and demonstrated that she was more than a bimbo.

After supporting roles in Wild Bill (1995) and Mars Attacks! (1996), she undertook the role of the WASPish bride of a mobster in the lame farce Mafia! (1998). Applegate appeared to much better effect as a scion of a wealthy family who turns to stripping in Claudine's Return (also 1998).

A more assured, grown-up performer, she also returned to series TV in the fall of 1998 as a single mother in the NBC sitcom Jesse, created by the production team behind Friends. While most praised her leading performance, many critics felt the vehicle was unworthy of her talents. Although the series debuted in the cushy 8:30 p.m. time slot on Thursdays (sandwiched between Friends and Frasier), its ratings were somewhat disappointing and the series was canceled in 2000 after two seasons. Applegate bounced back with a fine supporting role as Cameron Diaz's sidekick in the girls-can-be-raunchy-too film comedy The Sweetest Thing (2002). The following year, she joined Gwyneth Paltrow and Mike Myers for the flop airplane comedy View From The Top on the big screen, and won a comedy guest actress Emmy for her stint on Friends as Rachel's (Jennifer Aniston's) shallow, self-absorbed sister Amy, a role she would reprise in the sit-com's final season. She also tip-toed into big screen dramatic roles, playing the small but crucial role of Susan Launius, the only survivor of the infamous 1981 Wonderland Avenue murders in Los Angeles involving porn legend John Holmes, in the dizzying but unsatisfying Wonderland (2003).

With her film career gathering steam, she next appeared opposite Will Ferrell in the 1970s-set comedy Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy (2004) as pioneering anchorwoman Veronica Corningstone, who resists Burgandy's attempts to keep a woman out of a power position in his newsroom, followed by a turn as Ben Affleck's rented "sister"-turned-love interest in the dismal holiday comedy Survivng Christmas (2004).

Applegate, who frequently danced with Hollywood's trendy Pussycat Dolls toup in the early 2000s, was expected to make her Broadway debut as '60s dance-hall dame Charity Hope Valentine in the Broadway revival of Bob Fosse's Sweet Charity slated for April 2005. The production was derailed when Applegate broke her foot during preview performances in March and had to be replaced by her understudy and early word on the production was tepid. But after the formal debut was canceled, Applegate appealed to her producers and the show was rescheduled to debut in May 2005 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre.
