Jenna Elfman

Jenna Elfman Headshot

Actress

Birth Date: September 30, 1971

Age: 52 years old

Birth Place: Los Angeles, California

An ebullient performer who earned fame with her role as a buoyant free-spirit on the popular sitcom "Dharma & Greg" (ABC, 1997-2002), actress Jenna Elfman broke through as a stand out cast member of the failed sitcom, "Townies" (ABC, 1996). A professional dancer who made the switch to acting in the early 1990s, Elfman made immediate strides on the small screen, landing guest starring roles on both dramas and sitcoms, including "Roseanne" (ABC, 1988-1997) and "NYPD Blue" (ABC, 1993-2005) before landing her first regular gig with "Townies." Though "Townies" was only on the air a short time, network executives were duly impressed with Elfman's talents and signed her to an exclusive deal to develop her own series. The result was "Dharma & Greg," which managed to stay on for five seasons while earning the actress three consecutive Emmy Award nominations. Once the show was canceled, however, Elfman's career hit a rough patch that included starring in the failed sitcom, "Courting Alex" (CBS, 2006), while a heated argument with a Scientology critic ignited a brief, but white-hot media firestorm. But Elfman continued to persevere, regaining her presence as a charming sitcom actress on series including "Accidentally On Purpose" (CBS 2009-10), White House satire "1600 Penn" (ABC 2012-13), family sitcom "Growing Up Fisher" (ABC 2014) and fantasy "Imaginary Mary" (ABC 2017) before joining the cast of established horror hit "Fear the Walking Dead" (AMC 2015- ).
