Katherine Heigl plays Isabel Evans, one of three alien teenagers who have hidden their otherworldly identities behind human facades 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.
In addition to her role on "Roswell," Heigl has eight feature films to her credit, including the recently released "Valentine" in which she starred opposite David Boreanaz, "The Bride of Chucky" with Jennifer Tilly and a co-starring role in Steven Soderbergh's Depression-era release, "King of the Hill."
Heigl's breakout performance came at the age of 14 when she starred as the rebellious teenager determined to grow up too fast in the comedy "My Father the Hero" with Gerard Depardieu. Additional feature credits include "Prince Valiant," "Stand-Ins" and "Wish Upon a Star." She also stars in the upcoming teen comedy "100 Girls."
On the small screen, Heigl has just wrapped production on the television movie "Ground Zero," based on James Mills' best selling book, "The Seventh Power." Previously she starred opposite Peter Fonda in "The Tempest," which re-situated the Shakespearean masterpiece as an American Civil War drama.
Born in Washington D.C., and raised in New Canaan, Conn., Heigl lives in Los Angeles.
