Birth Name: Kristy Swanson
Born: 12/19/1969
Birth Place: Mission Viejo, California, USA

In an attempt to dispel her "girl next door" image, Swanson starred as the devastatingly beautiful and seductive sociopath Francesca Wells in the ABC movie "Bad to the Bone" (1997). 1998 saw her play a gossipy Southern socialite in the feature "Meeting Daddy", and she also returned to series TV, joining the cast of CBS' "Early Edition" for the 1998-99 season as Kyle Chandler's love interest. She received some of her best feature exposure to date as Adam Sandler's girlfriend in the commercial blockbuster "Big Daddy" (1999). She was back as a series regular in CBS' fluffy midseason comedy "Grapevine" (2000- ), a reworking of a series that had run briefly in 1992. Swanson played Susan Crawford, a cruise-line executive who meddles in everyone's business before coming to realize that she's madly in love with a college pal (played by Steven Eckholdt).
