Shiri Appleby plays Liz Parker, one of the human teenagers who knows the secret of her three alien friends in the New Mexico town made famous by the supposed crash of an alien spacecraft in 1947. Based on "Roswell High," the book series by Melinda Metz, this suspenseful and affecting drama melds science fiction with the alienation of young adulthood. "Roswell" will make its UPN premiere this fall. This marks its third season.
Appleby's other television credits include the television movies "Perfect Family" with Jennifer O'Neill and Bruce Boxleitner and "Family Prayers" with Paul Reiser and Anne Archer. She also starred on Norman Lear's series "Sunday Dinner."
Appleby's first feature film was Lawrence Kasdan's black comedy "I Love You to Death," with Kevin Kline, River Phoenix and Tracey Ullman. She also starred opposite Larisa Oleynick in the independent feature film "A Time For Dancing," which was directed by Peter Gilbert ("Hoop Dreams") and is currently seeking domestic distribution.
Most recently, Appleby completed the independent feature film "Swimfan85," directed by Australian director John Polson and produced by Michael Douglas' Further Films, starring opposite Jesse Bradford and Erika Christensen.
Appleby lives in Los Angeles where she is committed to completing her education at the University of Southern California.
