Jennie Garth is an American actress best known for her role as Kelly Taylor in the drama series Beverly Hills, 90210, appearing in 291 episodes from 1990-2000.

At various points in the series, Garth's character was involved in a love triangle between Dylan McKay and Brenda Walsh, became a diet pill abuser, was trapped in a fire, became involved in a cult, used cocaine, was raped, shot, got amnesia and had a miscarriage.

Garth reprised the role in the series spin-off Melrose Place, in three episodes (1992).

Garth was born in Urbana, Illionis, USA to John and Carolyn Garth, who both had 3 children each from different marriages, before they had Jennie.

She grew up on a 25-acre horse ranch outside Urbana, Illinois with her 6 older siblings: Johnny, Chuck, Lisa, Cammie, Wendy and Lynn. When Jennie was 13, she and her family moved to Phoenix, Arizona.

She took dancing lessons and did a little modeling while living in Arizona, and she dreamed of going to college and later start her own dance studio.

At age 15, Garth was discovered and encouraged to pursue an acting career by a talent scout, who had seen her win a talent competition.She dropped out of high school during her junior year, and she and her mom moved to Los Angeles, California so she could become an actress.

She later obtained her diploma in California. There, she started taking acting classes and went to auditions almost every day.

After living in LA about four months, she landed the role of 'Erica McCray' on the NBC series "A Brand New Life" (1989). Within a year, she was cast as 'Kelly Taylor' on the long-running teen drama series Beverly Hills, 90210 on FOX television.

Ever since, she has starred in several movies made for TV, a number of which she has produced and directed herself.

On 20 January 2001, she married actor Peter Facinelli, the father of her first daughter, Luca Bella (born June 29th, 1997), on her ranch in Santa Barbara, California.

On 6 December 2002, the couple welcomed their second daughter, Lola Ray and their third daughter Fiona Eve on 30 September 2006.
