Kristen Anne Bell, born July 18th, 1980 in Huntington Woods, Michigan. Quirky, peppy and highly optimistic, Bell is a down-to-earth, food-loving delight. Since childhood Kristen knew she wanted to be an actress. By the time she was thirteen she had secured an agent and was enjoying some success working in television commercials. She attended Shrine Catholic High School in Royal Oak, Michigan, where she appeared in several musicals. After high school, the beautiful K-Bell furthered her passion and education by studying musical theater at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts before making her stage debut in a musical version of "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer". Soon after she made her way to Los Angeles where she began her career in film. Like a domino affect, she quickly knocked audiences off their feet with her sweet smile and quick wit. And as art imitates life, she knows what it takes to portray fun, strong female leads. Her most enjoyable role to date? Motherhood--which suits her quite well.
