Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (born January 23, 1974 in Long Beach, California, USA to Frank Thiessen and Robyn Ernest) is an American television and film actress. After many years of going by her full name, she is now credited as simply Tiffani Thiessen. Thiessen had a restraining order against KLSX’’s Frosty Stilwell for stalking.
As a child, she competed in many beauty pageants, and she won the Miss Junior America pageant in 1987. Her first big break in show business was her role on the television program Saved By The Bell, as nice girl teen Kelly Kapowski. This was very different from her next major role, as a duplicitous vixen on Beverly Hills, 90210. She later starred in the sitcom Two Guys and a Girl and the short-lived action show Fastlane.
Her transition to movies has not gone well so far, as most of her movies, including Love Stinks, have been critically panned. In 2002, she appeared in the film Hollywood Ending by Woody Allen.
In March 1999, her boyfriend at the time, actor David Strickland (Suddenly Susan), committed suicide.
On July 9, 2005, she married actor Brady Smith. It is the first marriage for both.
