Wikipedia

Courtney Thorne-Smith (born November 8, 1967) is an American actress. She is best known for her roles as Alison Parker on Melrose Place, Georgia Thomas on Ally McBeal, and Cheryl Mabel in According to Jim.

Early life

She was born in San Francisco, California, and grew up in Menlo Park, a suburb south of San Francisco. Her father, Walter Smith, was a computer market researcher and her mother was a therapist. They divorced when she was seven years old, and she lived with both parents at different stages. She attended Menlo-Atherton High School, in Atherton, California, and graduated from Tamalpais High School, in Mill Valley, California, in 1985. She also performed with the Ensemble Theater Company in Mill Valley while attending high school.

Career

Films

Thorne-Smith made her first film appearance in the 1986 feature film drama Lucas alongside Winona Ryder, Corey Haim, and Charlie Sheen. She was also involved in a number of movies in the late 1980s, such as "Welcome to 18" (1986), Summer School (1987), Revenge of the Nerds II: Nerds in Paradise (1987), and Side Out (1990).
Television
She appeared on a few mid-'80s television shows such as Growing Pains and the short-lived Fast Times, as well as made-for-TV movies including The Thanksgiving Promise and Infidelity before landing a regular role in the short-lived sitcom Day by Day with Douglas Sheehan, Linda Kelsey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. In 1990, she was featured in six episodes of the popular TV series LA Law as Kimberly Dugan.
Her first notable starring television role was as Alison Parker on Melrose Place from 1992–1997. During this time, in 1995, she starred in a made-for-television movie "Beauty's Revenge" which was also marketed in CD and DVD form as "Midwest Obsession". Following this, she went on to play Georgia Thomas on Ally McBeal from 1997–2000. Thorne-Smith had originally auditioned for the title role in the show, which ultimately went to Calista Flockhart.

Her character was written out of Ally McBeal at the beginning of the fourth season in 2000, though she returned for occasional guest appearances afterwards.
From 2001 to 2009, Thorne-Smith starred as Cheryl on the sitcom According to Jim. In 2007, her real-life pregnancy was hidden on the show at first, but was then written into the plot.
On February 18, 2010, Courtney signed on to play Alan Harper's girlfriend, Lyndsey McElroy, in the seventh season of Two and a Half Men.She appeared in two episodes of season 7 and several more in season 8.
