The actress who plays Natasha on the new comedy What About Brian looks so familiar. Has she been in any other shows or movies?

That's Tiffani Thiessen, 33, who practically grew up on TV. In front of the cameras since she was 8 years old (doing a TV commercial for Barbie), she's a former Miss Junior America who got her first big acting breaks playing teens on episodes of Charles in Charge, Blossom and Married With Children, then recurring roles on Saved by the Bell (as perky cheerleader Kelly Kapowski) and Beverly Hills, 90210 (as conniving Valerie Malone). You also may have seen her in TV's Just Shoot Me!, Good Morning, Miami and Fastlane. Married since 2005 to actor Brady Smith, she was ranked 43rd in last year's 100 Greatest Teen Stars countdown special on VH1.
