Early guest work in 1998 episodes of the series "Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place" (1998) and "Homicide: Life on the Street" (NBC) and a 1999 turn on Fox's "Beverly Hills, 90210" launched Somerville's career, but it was her turn as fictional 1950s rock and roll singer Lyne Danner in "Shake, Rattle and Roll" that auspiciously paired her acting talents and singing skills.

As Courtney Scott, Somerville showcased not only her comic capabilities, but a hip, lighthearted, self-mocking attitude, playing her show-within-a-show character Laura Johnson to good overdramatic effect. The actress has also branched out into big screen work with roles in the 1999 independent thriller "Sleep Easy, Hutch Rymes" as well as the...
