Career[edit]

Her first feature film role was the female lead in Megaville (1990), alongside Billy Zane.

Kristen's other credits include lead parts in Caged Fear with David Keith and A Part of the Family. She has also had featured roles in Stay Tuned, Mistress, and The Marrying Man. Kristen's previous television credits include a regular role on Winnetka Road as Maybeth, a divorced mother of three and secretary to Ed Begley Jr.'s character.

Kristen's guest appearances include The X-Files, One West Waikiki, Cheers, Mad About You, Dear John, Murder She Wrote, Quantum Leap and Doogie Howser, MD, and most recently, in December, 1998, as Tamara Harrington on ABC's Vengeance Unlimited (episode "Noir").

In 1995, Kristen's big break came when she portrayed the tough and gritty Captain Shane Autumn Vansen on Space: Above and Beyond.

As a result of her amazing work as Vansen, Kristen won a guest spot on The X-Files (FOX) as the troubled Melissa Ephesian, a schizophrenic wife of cult leader Vernon Ephesian and soulmate of FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder. Giving one of the best and most moving performances of her career, she would later describe the episode ("The Field Where I Died") as a love letter between herself and producer Glen Morgan (Space: Above and Beyond, The X-Files, Millennium), her then fiancé (now husband).

In 1996, she won a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for her performance in the ABC Afterschool Special The Long Road Home, in which she played a young wife who has difficulty relating to her husband's son.
