Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Although best known for playing one of classic television's ultimate good girls, as well as being the wife of comedic actor Ben Stiller, actress Christine Taylor acquitted herself exceptionally well in a wide variety of roles throughout her career. After receiving her start on the teen comedy series "Hey Dude" (Nickelodeon, 1989-1991), the blue-eyed, blonde-haired beauty was perfectly - almost too perfectly - cast as eldest daughter Marcia in the hit sitcom lampoons "The Brady Bunch Movie" (1995) and "A Very Brady Sequel" (1996). Having met Stiller on the set of an unaired pilot and married a year later, Taylor later co-starred with her new husband in the cult comedy "Zoolander" (2001), the first of many onscreen collaborations for the couple. In a seemingly perfect blend of family and work, Taylor and Stiller managed to raise two children in and around their side-by-side appearances in projects, ranging from the feature comedy "Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story" (2004) to the long-running Larry David series "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (HBO, 2000- ). She enjoyed a prominent role - sans Stiller - in the acclaimed independent comedy "Kabluey" (2007) and contributed to a hilariously awkward segment of her...

Other work included a supporting turn in first-time director Jon Kasdan's teen romance "The First Time" (2013). With or without her superstar husband, Taylor remained a welcome screen presence in film and television efforts of every stripe.
