Jenna Elfman

Her role in TV series Dharma & Greg
Jenna Elfman was raised in Los Angeles and thought she wanted to become a nun. She was very noisy in class and that is when she discovered she wanted to be an entertainer. She was trained in classical dance since she was in first grade and that helped her become a ZZ Top's Legs Girl in 1994. After she got back from touring she was discovered while dancing at the Sunset Boulevard House of Blues by ABC. She was first in a series called Townies and the day after that show was canceled both ABC and FOX wanted her for their networks. She chose to stay with ABC and started the show Dharma & Greg. In addition to her work on "Dharma & Greg," Elfman will be seen this coming year starring in the feature film comedy, "Krippendorf's Tribe," with Richard Dreyfuss and Lily Tomlin. In the film about an anthropologist who convinces his family to portray a primitive tribe, Elfman plays a bright and ambitious professor who believes the fraud. Elfman earned raves for her scene-stealing performance in the ABC series, "Townies." She was also seen in the feature film, "Grosse Point Blank," starring John Cusack and Minnie Driver. She has guest-starred on such television programs as "Roseanne," "Murder One," "NYPD Blue" and "Almost Perfect." In 1996, she played a drug counselor in the critically acclaimed made-for-television movie, "Her Last Chance," with Patti LuPone and Kellie Martin. A native of Los Angeles, Elfman began her career in commercials, landing roles in dozens of national television ads for a variety of well-known companies. She later expanded her horizons by studying with renowned acting teacher Milton Katselas, from whom she still takes classes. Among her many other talents, Jenna is a classically trained ballerina. She currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband. Source: netglimse.com

Yeah, I think the common denominator - and this is probably going to sound like Acting 101 - but the common denominator is belief in the character in the moment.More Jenna Elfman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have been styling my own hair since I was four years old ... and I still don't let anyone else touch it to this day. I cut, color, style, and spray my own hair, on all sets and shoots, that's just the way it goes. I get way too nervous when someone else starts to mess with it.More Jenna Elfman quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
