COURTNEY THORNE SMITH
As one of television's most enduring talents, Courtney Thorne Smith has done the near impossible three times over; anchoring consecutive hit TV shows for the past fifteen years. On ABC's "According to Jim," Courtney played the charismatic wife opposite Jim Belushi for eight seasons. Previously, her role as 'Georgia' in Fox Television's Emmy-winning series, "Ally McBeal" solidified her as a top television personality. With her portrayal of 'Allison Parker' in the much-loved primetime drama "Melrose Place," Courtney first gained international attention. Currently she can be seen on the CBS comedy hit "Two and a Half Men" in the recurring role of 'Lyndsey' opposite Jon Cryer. With her philanthropic work in women's issues and animal rights, Courtney's commitment to pro-social causes is a cornerstone of her public identity.
