KRISTEN JOHNSTON won two Emmys for her role on THIRD ROCK FROM THE SUN. She has appeared on many other television shows including UGLY BETTY, ER,
BORED TO DEATH and, perhaps most memorably, as the party girl whose famous final words were “I’m so bored I could die” on SEX AND THE CITY. She’s currently on television on TV Land’s hit series, “The Exes”, which is now in its fourth season. Just a few of Johnston’s many stage credits are SO HELP ME GOD! (Drama Desk Nomination), THE WOMEN, AUNT DAN & LEMON, LOVE SONG on the West End, as well as starring in three Shakespeare in The Park productions, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, 12TH NIGHT and THE SKIN OF OUR TEETH.

Kristen’s film credits include the 2nd AUSTIN POWERS film (as Ivana Humpalot), FINDING BLISS, BRIDE WARS, LIFE HAPPENS, VAMPS, STRANGERS WITH CANDY, and the upcoming independent films BAD PARENTS with Janeane Garafolo, as well as LOVESICK with Matt LeBlanc. Johnston teaches acting at The Atlantic Theater Company’s Acting School at NYU.
