Best known for her spate of roles on American prime-time sitcoms, actress Christa Miller grew up in Manhattan. As the daughter of 1960s fashion model Bonnie Trompeter and aeronautical engineer Chuck Miller, and the niece of Love at First Bite star Susan Saint James, Miller overcame a significant physical debilitation as a young child -- the surgical removal of a potentially crippling leg tumor -- before establishing herself as a successful print model during her teens. The transition to acting was a fluid and easy one, and consisted, in the early years, of guest appearances on such programs as Kate & Allie (reportedly without James's involvement; the established actress later insisted that her niece got the job on her own behalf), Northern Exposure, and Seinfeld. Miller achieved full-fledged sitcom stardom in 1995, when comedian Drew Carey tapped her for regular cast billing as Kate O'Brien, his onscreen gal pal, on his blockbuster program The Drew Carey Show. Then, as Carey wound down at the end of the 2000-2001 TV season, Miller snagged another role: that of hospital board member Jordan Sullivan, with whom the main character (Zach Braff) enjoys a brief tryst, on the medically themed sitcom Scrubs (created by Miller's husband, Bill Lawrence). She remained with that program over the course of multiple seasons and struck a chord with audiences. In 2008 she was one of the leads in the remake of The Andromeda Strain, and the next year she was cast in the Courtney Cox series Cougar Town.
