Profile Bio Text
Christina Applegate made her TV debut at three months of age. Her mother, actress Nancy Priddy, was a regular on the soap opera Days of our Lives, and when Applegate was born, she appeared on the show in her mother`s arms. In her first movie, 1981`s King Cobra when she was 9, Applegate again played her mother`s daughter. With her mother`s connections, she easily found work as a child actress, appearing on shows like Quincy, Charles in Charge, and Family Ties in the mid-1980s. She played Rick Schroder`s prom date on Silver Spoons, and played Grace Kelly as a child in a 1983 TV biopic, Grace Kelly.
Her first TV series was Showtime`s political comedy Washingtoon (1985) as a Congressman`s daughter. The next year, she was a cop`s daughter on the police drama Heart of the City. Starting in 1987 when she was 16, Applegate played the nymphomaniac Kelly Bundy on the anti-family comedy Married with Children for eleven years.
She has also played a teen prostitute in 1990`s Streets, a sleazy drug dealer in Wonderland, Gwyneth Paltrow`s best friend in View from the Top, and Cameron Diaz`s friend in The Sweetest Thing. In 1995`s Vibrations, Applegate manages a rave where a handless keyboard-player finds redemption. Still, after 11 years of Married with Children it has been hard for audiences to see Applegate as anything else. Yet in 2004, Applegate`s movie career got a lift with Anchorman, where she played a non-bimbo early TV anchorwoman, to Will Ferrell`s dismay.
