A comedic powerhouse, statuesque Kristen Johnston broke out as the alien-turned-bombshell Sally Solomon on "3rd Rock from the Sun" (NBC, 1996-2001). Displaying impeccable timing and fearless comedic instincts, the husky-voiced Johnston won two Best Supporting Actress Emmys. She made a fun cameo as Ivana Humpalot in "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" (1999), starred as the young Wilma in the live-action prequel "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas" (2000) and dazzled as the bitchy Sylvia Fowler in a filmed stage production of "The Women" (PBS, 2002). Her subsequent big-screen supporting turns included colorful roles as a gym teacher in "Strangers with Candy" (2005), Drew Barrymore's protective big sister in "Music and Lyrics" (2007), and Anne Hathaway's bullying coworker in "Bride Wars" (2009). On television, notched a dark comic guest spot on "Sex and the City" (HB0, 1998-2004) as a bad girl who exits a fancy party by tumbling to her death out a window. Although her American remake of "Absolutely Fabulous" (BBC One, 1992-2004) failed to launch, Johnston resurfaced in Amy Heckerling's horror comedy "Vamps" (2011). Displaying a go-for-broke comic gusto that matched her force-of-nature physicality, Kristen Johnston always proved a fascinating addition to any project in which she appeared, leaving fans with the hopes she would once again find a breakout role suitable to her talents.
