Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Blonde, tan, and acerbic, Kristen Miller has turned her excellent comic timing and ironic delivery into a career appearing in guest and leading roles. Miller has worked in both television and film, but is perhaps most widely known for her TV work in shows like "That's My Bush," "Charmed" and "She Spies." Miller's very first on-screen role came in 1995 when she was given a small part on an episode of "Saved by the Bell: The New Class." She went on to play twins Alexis and Ashley Elliot in the television series "USA High." The show only ran for two seasons, but her performance was sufficient to make her memorable to casting agents. This performance, combined with her youthful and athletic appearance, has allowed Miller to play characters younger than herself, giving her career a boost of longevity. In addition to her work in television, Miller has also been cast in a number of Hollywood feature films. Her first Hollywood feature was 2001 horror flick "The Pool" in which she had the starring role. The movie was poorly received by critics, but Miller soon after had the chance to be part of a very popular and critically successful film when she was cast as Lisa in 2004's animated parody "Team America:...

Paul Michael Kelly (August 9, 1899 - November 6, 1956) was an American film actor. Kelly was born in Brooklyn, New York. He was a child actor in silent films beginning at age 7 before growing up to become a Broadway and film actor. Kelly appeared in over one hundred movies, most of them as a supporting actor in the 30s, 40s and 50s. The actor's career momentum was briefly halted with a two-year (1927-1929) forced hiatus when he spent 25 months in California's San Quentin prison for beating to death actor Ray Raymond in a fistfight. Raymond's widow, Dorothy MacKaye, later married Kelly. She was briefly imprisoned for being an accomplice in the murder. Kelly alternated between stage and screen as an actor, finally making his talkie debut in 1932's Broadway Through A Keyhole. Kelly died of a heart attack in 1956, aged 57. Awards Best Actor Tony Award (1948) for Command Decision. The award was shared with Henry Fonda for Mister Roberts and Basil Rathbone for The Heiress.
