Brooke Shields
Brooke Shields began her accomplished professional career at only eleven months of age when she was selected as the Ivory Snow Baby, and by age 3 was a runway model. At age 9, Shields began her extensive film career when she won her first acting role in "Alice Sweet Alice" and rapidly gained fame after staring in Louis Males' "Pretty Baby," the Palme D'or Award winner at the Cannes Film Festival, and the coming of age tales "Blue Lagoon" and "Endless Love." As a model, Brooke has graced the covers of hundreds of magazines, most notably Time Magazine as the "Face of the Eighties." Today, Shields continues her prolific appearances in a broad range of worldwide publications, decades after it all began.

In addition to her film achievements, Shields has maintained a successful and critically acclaimed television career. Her work on The NBC hit "Suddenly Susan" garnered her a Golden Globe nomination, and she received an American Comedy Award nod for her guest role on "Friends." Brooke is the recipient of five People's Choice Awards, and has previously starred in NBC's "Lipstick Jungle," in addition to guest appearances on a wide range of hit shows including "That 70's Show," "Hannah Montana," "Two And A Half Men" and "The Middle." Shields will portray brash and brilliant Air Force Colonel Katherine "Kat" Young this spring in Lifetime's critically acclaimed drama, "Army Wives."

Shields is the best-selling author of several books, including "The Brooke Book," "On Your Own," and the highly publicized and critically acclaimed "Down Came the Rain: My Journey Through Postpartum Depression." Brooke has recently tapped into her experiences as a mother, successfully branching out into the world of children's books, penning "Welcome To Your World, Baby" and "It's the Best Day Ever Dad" for Harper Collins.

While attending Princeton University, Brooke pursued her love of Theatre as a member of the Princeton Triangle Club. Shortly after graduating with honors, she made her Broadway debut as Rizzo in the hit musical "Grease," for which she earned the Theatre World Award in 1994 for "Outstanding Debut on Broadway." Shields went on to star in "Chicago," "Wonderful Town," and "Cabaret," all of which earned her rave reviews. Last year, Brooke starred in a variety of on-stage productions. She assumed the iconic role of Morticia Addams alongside Roger Rees in the hit Broadway show, "The Addams Family." Brooke appeared in the acclaimed ensemble "Girls Talk," written and directed by Roger Kumble. Brooke also had her critically acclaimed nightclub debut at Feinstein's at The Loews Regency, performing "In My Life," a freewheeling music and stand-up romp through her life's ups and downs. The show sold out its entire run.

In 2012, Shields starred alongside Richard Chamberlain in playwright John Pielmeier's world premiere adaptation of The Exorcist at the Geffen Playhouse. Helmed by acclaimed director John Doyle, this stage adaptation of William Peter Blatty's famous 1971 novel transformed the unsettling battles of good versus evil, faith versus fact and ego versus ethos into a uniquely theatrical experience as sophisticated as it is suspenseful.

In addition to her professional career, Brooke continues to be a strong advocate for children's rights and literacy, and is the happily married mother of 2 beautiful daughters.
