Roles on "7th Heaven" (1996) and "City Guys" (1997) followed and then Shiri enrolled into the University of Southern California where she planned on taking a break from acting and studying English. However, her plans gave way when she landed the role as Liz Parker on the WB Hit "Roswell" (1999). It was then that she gave her education a break and decided to try acting full-time.

With the success of "Roswell" (1999), Shiri rose to fan-magazine fame and was seen everywhere through the show's success. With small roles in past films such as "The Thirteenth Floor" (1999) and "The Other Sister" (1999) in 2002, after "Roswell" (1999) ended, Shiri landed the role as Amy Miller, the trusting girlfriend of Jesse Bradford, in the suspenseful teen-film "Swimfan" (2002).

Jason Behr

Updated by Lena (2001 - 2008)

Jason Nathaniel Behr, born December 30, 1973 (Capricorn), has won the attention of critics and audiences alike for his performances in both feature films and television.

A native of Minneapolis, Minnesota, and the second of four brothers, Jason became interested in acting at an early age, using his creative energy to act on the stage from the age of five. He continued to perform and enjoy the challenges of acting throughout his school years.

Directly following his graduation from Richfield High School (where he was voted 'Most Destined for Fame'), Jason relocated to Los Angeles to pursue his career seriously.

In Los Angeles, Jason was sent out on auditions and was immediately successful, landing guest starring and regular roles for the CBS, NBC and ABC networks. He played the role of Tyler Banks for two seasons on the Showtime comedy "Sherman Oaks," as the son of a wealthy plastic surgeon who identified with and thought himself to be an oppressed black man. Foreshadowing his future brush with aliens, he appeared in the TV movie "Alien Nation: Millennium."

Jason was soon appearing on such programs as "Step by Step," "JAG," "Profiler," and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (as Billy 'Ford' Fordham in 'Lie to Me'). He also played a lead role of Dempsey Easton in the short-lived ABC television series about college athletes training for the Olympics in "Push." In addition, Jason traveled to North Carolina and appeared in the role of bad-boy Chris Wolfe for six episodes on the popular WB television series "Dawson’s Creek."

In the WB television drama "Roswell" Jason was portraying Max Evans, a unique and complicated young man who is on a journey to discover himself and his place in the world.

Jason also starred in the independent feature film production "Rites of Passage," co-starring Dean Stockwell, written and directed by Victor Salva (director of "Powder"). The film made its debut at the 1999 Palm Springs Film Festival and was well-received and nominated for awards.

Alongside Kevin Spacey, Jason was cast in "The Shipping News" (2001). He played Dennis Buggit a Newfoundlander in the movie directed by Lasse Hallström. The film received good critics and was nominated for several awards, including two Golden Globes.

After the cancellation of "Roswell" Jason moved forward and concentrated on movies only. He played the lead in a heart-warming story and independent production named "Happily Even After", written by Rebecca Sonnenshine and he was filming in Japan for Takashi Shimizu's horror flick "The Grudge" (2004). There Jason worked with Sarah Michelle Gellar again and he met his bride-to-be - Kadee Strickland - on the set.

After the huge sucess of "The Grudge" Jason accepted a role in the indie movie "Man of God" (2005). For his next role in "Shooting Livien" (2005) Jason lost 20lbs to play the role of the lead character John Livien and got an estimated of two hours of sleep every night during filming. The dark psychological drama explores the inner psyche of John Livien, a disillusioned New York musician who deals with a childhood trauma by claiming an alter ego. To take this challenge Jason learned to play the songs on the guitar in his free time during the production.

After adding so many movies to his filmography, Jason landed a lead role in a new CBS pilot "The Way" (2006) in which he was cast as Michael Warden. Sadly, the pilot wasn't picked up by the network.

For the fantasy horror movie "Skinwalkers" (2006) Jason was in Canada. He portrayed Varek the leader of a werewolf gang. In this film he plays the bad boy. He explains to the Mediablvd. Magazine: "I play the bad guy, for once. It's about two warring Native American tribes who have this gift of skinwalking. It's an actual Native American myth. You put on the pelt of an animal and you become that animal. It's a different spin on the werewolf mythology, where a shaman, way back in the day, started to use this gift for bad and became obsessed and possessed by it, and from that, spawned these two different views of life. One embraces the blood lust and embraces the animal within, and the other thinks that it's murder and they deny themselves that."

The DVD "Skinwalkers" hit stores on November 27, 2007 in the United States.

Again, Jason was cast for a tv series pilot: The FOX pilot "Company Man". The pilot which is previously known as "NSA Innocent" centers on a family man, played by Jason, recruited by the National Security Agency as a spy within the defense contracting company he works for. Unfortunately the pilot was not ordered to series, too. Stephen Moyer was originally cast in the lead role, but the writers realized that the main character needed to be reconceived.

In Hyung-rae Shim's movie "D-War" (2007) which is based on a Korean legend Jason Behr played the reporter Ethan Kendrick in the lead. Landing a lead again, he played the young artist Jake Sawye who is into Tattoos in "The Tattooist" (2007). His character releases a deadly spirit as he attempts to learn tatau, the Samoan tradition of tattooing.

After exploring fantasy and legend based stories Jason was cast as Jack Frost in "Frost" (2008) a film in which the lead character has a playboy lifestyle in New York City until he learns that his childhood love is engaged. Jason was the desired actor of Steve Clark. In an interview he explained, how Jason got involved in the project: "UTA sent Jason the script and he met with me in LA. There was no question that he was the person we were looking for . . ."

The thriller "Senseless" (2008) is based on Stona Fitch's novel. In this story Jason plays an American businessman who's abducted in Europe and held hostage for 41 days and is tortured. The brutal kidnapper streams the torturing online as part of an ultra-violent reality tv show. Fans almost go the opinion about a "White Room" reloaded.

It's called "Senseless", not just because what they're doing is senseless, but because they systematically take away his senses. It was really tough work. It was pretty bare bones. A Scottish director, named Simon Hynd, took it on, and we did 6-day weeks. On the seventh day, we would all get together and rehearse because everybody wanted to make it as good as they possibly could. It was a really intense project. It was all taking place in one room, so we got to shoot in order. That's a real gift for an actor because you get to start off from page one and go to page 112, and it's all in order.

Jason recently worked on a movie called "Pinkville" as well as "International Departures".

The actor resides in Los Angeles with his Akita, Ronin. He is an avid athlete, and enjoys all sports, especially basketball. He also has considerable artistic talent, and designed a celebrity Christmas card to support the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

On November 10, 2006 Jason married actress and "The Grudge" co-star Kadee Strickland in Otay, California.

Katherine Heigl

From the WB Roswell Press packet; thanks to TVR.

Young in years but with a classic and timeless beauty, Katherine Marie Heigl has appeared in eleven feature films and makes her television series debut with "Roswell." Born in Washington, DC, November 24, 1978 (Sagittarius) and raised in New Canaan, Connecticut, Katherine got her first taste of the camera lens at age 9 as a child model - after her aunt sent in a photo of her to the Wilhemina modeling agency.

By her 12th birthday, she had made her feature film debut in "That Night," with Juliette Lewis. At 14, she had gained substantial roles in several movies, most notably her breakout performance as a rebellious teenager determined to grow up too fast in the comedy "My Father the Hero," alongside Gerard Depardieu. She starred in the theatrical release "The Bride of Chucky," the fourth installment of the cult-hit "Child's Play" series. Her other credits include a role in director Steven Soderbergh's Depression-era release titled "King of the Hill". She enjoyed her first taste of the action genre starring with Steven Segall in "Under Siege 2" as his character's niece who is kidnapped as bait when terrorists seize the train. Additional feature credits include "Bug Buster," "Stand-Ins," "Prince Valiant," and the comedy "Wish upon a Star."

On the small screen, Katherine starred opposite Peter Fonda in the television movie "The Tempest," which re-situated the classic Shakespearean drama as a Civil War period piece. She played the pivotal role of 16-year-old Miranda, who is torn between her devotion to her father (Fonda) and her love for a handsome Union soldier.

Between her early film projects, Katherine continued to concentrate on school and always returned to life as a normal New England teenager. She has an older brother, Holt, and sister, Meg, and an older brother, Jason, who died when Katherine was young -- a very painful personal tragedy for her and her family. Her older brother Jason died in 1986 of brain injuries suffered in a car accident, after being thrown from the back of a pickup truck. When doctors determined he was brain-dead, the family made the difficult decision to donate his organs. Not only did this painful chapter give Katherine a greater perspective and appreciation for life, but it motivated her to use her celebrity to promote the importance of organ donation.

After high school, she considered college, but moved to Los Angeles to concentrate on her acting career full-time. She lives there with her mom, who serves as her manager, and her miniature schnauzer dogs. She has received a great deal of favorable media notice after her modeling appearances in Maxim and FHM magazines.

During the three years "Roswell" was in production, Katherine found time to work on several movies. 100 Girls (2000), an independent film released in 2001, is the story of a college freshman who meets the girl of his dreams in an elevator during a blackout, who spends the rest of the movie trying to find her again. Her cameo role is that of Arlene, the competitive tomboy. The second film, Valentine (2001), a horror film starring David Boreanaz and Denise Richards, appeared in U.S. theaters on February 2, 2001. In this movie, which is based upon the 1996 novel by Tom Savage, Katherine plays Shelley, a medical student who meets a sudden demise.

Since the cancellation of "Roswell" in the spring of 2002, Katherine has been busy with various projects, including an appearance on UPN's update of the classic television series, "The Twilight Zone" (2002). That episode, entitled "Cradle of Darkness", aired October 2, 2002, and featured Katherine in the role of a woman who goes back in time to stop one of the most notorious murders in history.

In the Hallmark television movie "Love comes Softly" Katherine played Marty Claridge. The western romance is based on the books by Janette Oke.

In addition, she completed a movie, Descendant (2003), a psychological thriller inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's "The Fall of the House of Usher." Katherine has also starred as Romy in ABC/Touchstone's two- hour telepic "Romy and Michele: In the Beginning" (2005) (TV), a prequel to the 1997 feature "Romy and Michele's High School Reunion" (1997).

She recently stars as Isobel Stevens in the new ABC series "Grey's Anatomy".

The daughter of a Venezuelan father and Cuban-American mother, Majandra was born in Caracas, Venezuela, but moved with her family to Miami at age 3. (She was born Marialejandra, but her sister Marieh could not pronounce it and her name became Majandra instead.)

Brendan Fehr

From Brendan's Official Biography; thanks to black widow.

Born in New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada, October 29, 1977 (Scorpio), Brendan spent his early years playing sports and planning to perhaps be an accountant when he grew up because of his love of numbers. In 1990, he moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba and, as he continued with his schooling, his career plans changed from accounting to teaching; he has two sisters, one of whom is a teacher.

Brendan had very little thought of entering the world of film and television. In his late teens, others took notice of his strong good looks, and he worked in Winnipeg doing some minor modeling for local catalogue companies. On a trip to a family wedding in Vancouver in the fall of 1997, he decided to check out the local modeling scene. He approached his current management company in the hopes of landing some modeling work but they immediately noticed that he had much more potential for film and television. Within a week, Brendan had landed a guest star role on "Breaker High" for UPN and he has gained increasing notice and success as an actor.

After relocating to Vancouver, Brendan was a very active and sought after young actor. In addition to "Breaker High", his credits for television include two different co-starring roles on "Millennium" for FOX; costar on the syndicated series "Night Man"; costar in the USA Network Movie of the Week "Every Mother’s Worst Fear"; a Lead in the FOX Family Channel Movie of the Week, "Perfect Little Angels"; a guest star spot on "The New Addams Family" also for FOX Family Channel; and a lead in the ABC Movie of the Week "Our Guys" opposite Eric Stoltz and Ally Sheedy.

Brendan's current role is the part of "Michael Guerin" in the prime-time WB drama "Roswell." His feature film credits include "Disturbing Behavior" for MGM, the lead role of Eddy in the independent feature "Christina’s House", directed by up-and-coming Canadian director Gavin Wilding and a role in "Final Destination" opposite Devon Sawa for New Line Cinema. Brendan has also appeared in various national commercial campaigns for companies such as "Shell Canada" and "Champs Sports." He filmed an independent movie "Kill Me Later" with Selma Blair in Vancouver, and worked on the vampire movie "Forsaken" during the summer hiatus after first season of Roswell.

Brendan has a female Rottweiler named Opa and currently lives in Los Angeles. He is very proud of being Canadian, likes hockey (especially the Vancouver Canucks), and is a huge fan of Metallica and Spiderman - even sporting two new Metallica-related tattoos. Brendan comes from a very strong religious background and is active in charitable causes, including helping to build a Habitat for Humanity House in California with other stars of the WB. He also served as Canadian spokesman for World Vision's "30 Hour Famine" for the year 2000 (a charity for which FanForum's Los Angeles party in August 2000 raised $26,000!).

Colin Hanks

From the WB Roswell Press packet; thanks to Lilybunny.

Colin Hanks makes his professional acting debut with "Roswell," although he appeared in "That Thing You Do," a film directed by his father, Academy-Award-winning actor Tom Hanks.

Colin was born in New York on November 24, 1977 (Sagittarius) and grew up in Sacramento. He attended Loyola Marymount University, a liberal arts school in Westchester, CA, where he began acting, appearing in school productions such as "Noises Off!"

In addition to "Roswell", Colin has also appeared in "Whatever it Takes", a high school version of "Cyrano de Bergerac," in which he plays a quirky character named Cosmo.

In one eventful weekend, Colin landed the role in "I'll Be You" on Friday and started work on the film the next morning -- the same day he received a call from executive producer Jason Katims, announcing that "Roswell" had been picked up by the WB and he had the role of Alex Whitman.

Most recently, Colin appears in the film "Get Over It" starring Kirsten Dunst and Sisquo. He will be appearing an HBO special "Band of Brothers" in September, 2001 -- a Tom Hanks/Steven Spielberg production.

Nick Wechsler

From the WB Roswell Press packet; thanks to MistyMue.

A native of Albuquerque, New Mexico, born September 3, 1978 (Virgo), Nick Wechsler grew up not that far from the real setting of "Roswell," a show that marks his second starring role on a network series. (His first was as Trek in "Team Knight Rider.") The fifth in a family of eight sons, Wechsler's parents and most of his siblings still live in New Mexico. His father is a sheet-metal worker; his mother is a secretary for the U.S. Forest Service. Inspired by the terrible student actors in his school, he began his acting career in high school, turning in what he modestly describes as "awe-inspiring performances" in every succeeding school play. Nick is rarely serious about anything - but he is very serious about his acting and highly critical of his own performances, always striving to do better.

Nick moved to Hollywood immediately after graduating from high school, and spent the next six months trying to break into the business. He soon landed a small role as a purse-stealing punk in the TV movie "Full Circle." Shortly after, he was cast as Kevin "Trek" Sanders, a child prodigy conceived at a "Star Trek" convention, in the syndicated series "Team Knight Rider." He also appeared in "Silk Stalkings," "Lazarus Man" and the feature film "The Perfect Game."

Nick currently resides in Los Angeles and is a fan of the 'X-Files.' He has a very wild sense of humor and keeps everyone laughing. He is learning to play the guitar, with pointers from costar and his TV dad, William Sadler.
