Claudia Christian is an actor, writer, musician, singer, director.

Claudia made one of her most memorable performances in her feature film debut in the cult classic The Hidden opposite Kyle MacLachlan.

She went on from there to star in over 40 features including Clean and Sober starring Michael Keaton and Morgan Freeman, the leading role of Hexina in Columbia's comedy Hexed, opposite Charlie Sheen in 20th Century Fox's The Chase and as a photographer in Adam Rifkin's quirky feature Never On Tuesday.

She also starred opposite Steven Segal in the action thriller, Half Past Dead, as well as British sci-fi series Star Hyke in which she played the lead role and also directed several episodes.

In BBC2's Broken News she portrayed Julia Regan, the American correspondent for the British news service.

Claudia also starred in the HBO movies Running Home and Substitute 3, co-starring Treat Williams.

Making her mark in independent films, Claudia donned a fat suit and stepped into the rude and crude role of Elaine Kilgore from her hit indie film True Rights.

Additionally, Claudia recently finished The Failures, working again with acclaimed director Tim Hunter (The River's Edge).

In addition to her film credits, Christian's work in television is also extensive and includes the lead role as Commander Susan Ivanova in the Warner Bros syndicated cult television series Babylon 5.

She has also starred in two TNT produced tele-films based upon the series. Babylon 5 has developed an enormous European following and twice won the Hugo award for best science fiction television series. Christian received Sci-Fi Awards and Universe Awards best actress nominations for her role in the series.

Other television credits include numerous movies of the week starring with such greats as Faye Dunaway, Peter Falk, Bob Hope, Don Ameche, Sharon Stone and Jaclyn Smith among many others.

She's also been seen frequently on network television in shows such as, Everwood, Freaks and Geeks, Highlander, Family Law, and NYPD Blue to name a few.

One of Claudia's many passions is music and writing. She wrote both lyrics and music for her first CD Taboo, which she co-produced with Michael Jay.

She also has produced and sung on two additional albums, Claudia Squared and the jazz & blues album, Trying to Forget.

Her fourth CD, Once Upon a Time, saw her working again with Babylon 5 co-star Bill Mumy and winners of the John Lennon Song writing award, Share and Bam Ross.

She also went to Scotland to record an album for the first ever Sci-Fi Musical, Area 51.

Claudia also lends her voice to many different venues including live-action Internet games such as Earth and Beyond, Playstation games such as Shrek 2, commercials such as Jaguar Automobiles and her highly successful series of audio books from the Radio Repertory Company of America, Anne Manx.

The last instalment of Anne Manx, entitled Trouble On Chromius, won the Golden Headset award for Best Ensemble Cast in 2003.

Claudia permanently resides in London.
