Tiffani Thiessen          

Actress & Author, Known for "Saved By The Bell”; Star of "Dinner at Tiffani's" on the Cooking Channel

Tiffani Thiessen is probably best known for her roles on the '90s teen-oriented television shows, "Saved by the Bell" and "Beverly Hills 90210." Originally credited as Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, the actress dropped the second half of her first name as she tried to progress into more adult roles, both on television and in the movies.

She was crowned Miss Junior America in 1987 and won Teen Magazine's "Great Model Search" in 1988, the end product of a string of pageants throughout her childhood. In 1989, she began a four-year stint on the teen soap opera/sitcom "Saved by the Bell," the show that launched Elizabeth Berkeley and Mark-Paul Gosselar, portraying the wholesome Kelly Kapowski.

When she materialized on "Beverly Hills 90210" in 1994, midway through the show's run, she had reinvented herself as a vixen. Her Valerie Malone crossed purposes with almost every character on the show during her four years appearing on the Fox mainstay. A regular TV-movie actress and guest performer in sitcoms, Thiessen began venturing into feature films by the late '90s. She appeared in "Love Stinks" (1999) and "The Ladies Man" (2000) as well as the straight-to-video parody "Shriek If You Know What I Did Last Friday the 13th" (2000). Her most reputable film role came when she was cast in Woody Allen's "Hollywood Ending" (2002). In the fall of 2002, she began another gig as a series regular on Fox's "Fastlane," a hip, pastel-colored hybrid of "The Fast and the Furious" and "Miami Vice," overseen by "Charlie's Angels" director McGinty Nichol.

From 2009-2014 Thiessen played Elizabeth Burke on the USA drama "White Collar."

In 2015, she began hosting the Cooking Channel's show Dinner at Tiffani's.
