Tiffani Thiessen (formerly Tiffani-Amber Thiessen) is an American television and film actress. She was born January 23, 1974, in Long Beach , California. As a child, she competed in many beauty pageants, and she won the Miss Junior America pageant in 1987.
Her first big break in show business was her role on the television program Saved By The Bell, as a nice girl teen. This was very different from her next major role, as a duplicitous vixen on Beverly Hills, 90210.
Her transition to movies has not gone well so far, as most of her movies, including Love Stinks, have been awful. This may change soon, as it has just been announced that she will be joining the cast of an upcoming film by Woody Allen.
She is slated to return to television in 2001, with a program named after her: Something About Tiffani.
In 1999, her boyfriend David Strickland committed suicide.
