Christina Applegate was born on November 25th 1971. Her mother is Nancy Priddy and her Father is Robert Applegate. Christina is the only child from this marriage. Nancy is a former Actress/Singer and has been a driving influence in Christina's life. Her father, Robert is a former Recording Company Executive. Christina's parents divorced when she was very young and Christina lived with her mother during her formative years. As Christina once said in an interview, she has been an actress since "she popped out".
Christina made her acting debut in her mothers arms at 3 months of age while Nancy played her regular role in the Soap Opera "Days of our Lives". From that moment on, Christina's future in acting was sealed. After performing in several commercials for the retail giant "KMart" Christina became a success at the young age of 7. Her success has continued ever since. Christina appeared in several movies and TV shows until she was 15 (See List of Credits).
At the age of 15, Christina landed her best known role as Kelly Bundy in the successful sitcom "Married... With Children". This role brought Christina the attention of not only the American public but also the international community. There is no doubt the role of "Kelly Bundy" has been a Godsend to Christina, but like many artists, Christina still struggles with her attachment to her most popularized role. In Christina's case, the "Kelly" role is totally opposite the real life Christina. Unfortunately the inevitable final curtain fell on "Married with... Children" in 1997 after a near record breaking 11 seasons. Although Christina was obviously disappointed in leaving her TV family, she now looks forward to leaving behind the schedule limitations that working a weekly sitcom cast upon her.
Christina is now free to pursue other acting opportunities (especially in movies) and looks forward to it. In addition to her acting career, Christina owns a restaurant in Los Angeles and also freely donates her time to causes that are closest to her heart. These causes include the fight against AIDS and animal rights causes. Christina currently resides in the Hollywood Hills section of Los Angeles with her menagerie of pets. Along with pursuing her career in movies, she maintains her hobbies of dance, travel, reading and writing poetry.
