Kristen Johnston

Kristen Johnston played Sally Solomon on the hit television series '3rd Rock from the Sun,' for which she won two Emmy® Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. In TV Land's original sitcom, 'The Exes', Johnston plays Holly, a divorce attorney and landlord to three of her former clients, who happen to share the apartment across the hall from her own.

Johnston was nominated in 2010 for a Drama Desk Award (outstanding lead actress in a play) for her performance as Lily Darnley in the hit production of "So Help Me God!" which ran at the Lucille Lortel Theater in New York. She is a longtime member of the Atlantic Theater Company. Johnston's other theater credits include "Love Song" on the West End, "The Women" on Broadway, "Much Ado About Nothing," "Twelfth Night" and "The Skin Of Our Teeth" at the Public Theater in Central Park. Off-Broadway productions include "Baltimore Waltz" and "Aunt Dan and Lemon" and Atlantic's productions "The Lights" by Howard Korder at Lincoln Center, which earned her a Drama Desk Award nomination (best supporting actress) and "Scarcity" by Lucy Thurber.

Johnston has appeared on numerous TV shows including "ER," "Ugly Betty," and "Bored To Death." She also had a memorable turn as Lexi Featherstone, the party girl who falls out of a window on HBO's 'Sex and the City.'

Kristen Johnston made her screen debut in the short film "The Debt," which won a number of awards at international film festivals including the 1993 Cannes Film Festival. Her other film credits include a cameo role in "Finding Bliss," "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me," "The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas," "Strangers with Candy," "Music and Lyrics," and "Bride Wars." She'll also be seen in the upcoming films "Vamps," written and directed by Amy Heckerling, and "L!fe Happens," alongside Krysten Ritter and Kate Bosworth. Johnston teaches acting both privately and at NYU (the Atlantic Acting School) and is in the process of writing her first book, "Guts," for Simon & Schuster.
