About Christina Applegate:

Christina Applegate was born November 25, 1971, in Los Angeles. The daughter of a soap star actress, Nancy Priddy, and a record-company executive, Robert Applegate, Christina had her younger half-sister and half-brother as new additions to the family, after the divorce of her parents and remarriage of her father.

Christina Applegate's life was consumed by acting, and she even quit school at 17 in order to pursue it full-time. This wasn't a surprise; she had appeared in more than a dozen roles by the time she was that age.

With onscreen roles in series such as Father Murphy, Mama's Family, Quincy, Charles in Charge, Still the Beaver, Silver Spoons, Heart of the City, and Family Ties, as well as films like Jaws of Satan, Beatlemania, and the made-for-TV film The Grace Kelly Story, there was no doubt that acting was her given talent.
In 1987, Christina Applegate found her calling and the role that put her on the map. For 10 years, she portrayed ditzy and promiscuous Kelly Bundy in the dysfunctional family sitcom Married... With Children.
While surviving the tribulations of family life on Married... With Children, Christina Applegate was making the rounds on television, appearing in a slew of television shows including 21 Jump Street, Top of the Heap, host of Mad TV, and Pauly.
She also made it to several made-for-TV movies and straight to video movies, such as Dance 'Til Dawn, Streets and Across the Moon. In 1991, she made her big-screen debut in Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead, a lukewarm comedy.
After roles in obscure movies such as Wild Bill and Vibrations, Christina Applegate shared the screen with Jack Nicholson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Glenn Close, and Pierce Brosnan in 1996's Mars Attacks.

Christina Applegate was ready to jump back in the saddle with a role in the slapstick comedy Mafia!, and was back on television as the title character of the NBC sitcom Jesse, which debuted in 1998.
In 2003, Christina Applegate won an Emmy for her guest role on Friends, as she played Rachel Green's sister. After roles in the 2004 movies Employee of the Month with Matt Dillon and Surviving Christmas with Ben Affleck and James Gandolfini.
She also appeared in the big-screen comedy The Rocker with Rainn Wilson in '08, and she is slated to also be in the 2010 flick Everything Is Going to Be Just Fine, costarring Jennifer Coolidge.
In 2008, however, Christina Applegate faced a personal tragedy when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent a double mastectomy.
In 2009, Applegate founded Right Action for Women, a charitable foundation dedicated to breast cancer screening for women, and focused on the type of MRI scan which saved her life.
