Biography

A pretty brunette player with a charming freshness and likability, Shiri Appleby racked up a number of television credits before landing the role of Liz Parker, a teenage girl who is miraculously healed of a gunshot wound by a smitten classmate who confesses he is really an alien, on The WB sci-fi teen drama "Roswell". Appleby got her start in commercials at age four and from there landed her first series acting job, a recurring part on the NBC daytime drama "Santa Barbara" in 1985. Two years later the child performer made her TV-movie debut, with an appearance in NBC's "Blood Vows: The Story of a Mafia Wife" and could be seen in the following year's CBS drama "Go Toward the Light", about a young boy who contracts AIDS through a blood transfusion. Appleby made her big screen debut in the forgettable "Curse II: The Bite" (1989) the same year she was featured in the short-lived NBC sitcom "Knight & Daye". In 1990, the young actress appeared in Lawrence Kasdan's comedy "I Love You to Death" before landing a regular role on the Norman Lear comedy "Sunday Dinner" (CBS, 1991). The series' brevity (airing only six episodes) failed to make the show a substantial vehicle for the actress' breakthrough. In 1992, Appleby was featured in the USA Network movie "Perfect Family" and was a frequent guest performer, playing teens on series ranging from the popular "Doogie Howser, M.D." (ABC) to the all but forgotten "Against the Grain" (NBC). She returned to films with a featured part in "Family Prayers" (1993), playing the potential girlfriend of a young Jewish boy in this 1969-set coming-of-age drama.
