Bio

Jill Wagner is an American actress best known for her starring role as Krista Starr on the fantasy television series Blade: The Series (2006) and as the co-host of the game show Wipeout, from 2008-2011 and again from 2013.

She was born and raised in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Jill and her older brother were raised by their father, who ran a tyre shop.

She attended Ledford High School and then went on to attend North Carolina State University where she graduated Sigma cum Laude in Business.

After college she made the move to Los Angeles on a hunch, and quickly obtained a television and film manager.

Jill made her first mark on Hollywood when she was cast as the first female regular sketch performer on MTV's hit television series Punk'd.

Following her stint on Punk'd, Jill embarked on her journey with scripted series television and landed many notable guest-starring roles in series such as Monk for USA, Quintuplets for FOX and a recurring role on Dr. Vegas for CBS.

Jill also appeared in the Sony Pictures feature film Guess Who? as well as the independent feature films June Bug, Forgotten and Shifted.

In April 2005 Jill was named the new Lincoln Mercury spokesperson. The popular commercials starring Jill became a very effective campaign for Lincoln Mercury as well as affording her amazing recognition within American households (to the extent that she has become known as "The Mercury Girl".

She has also made guest appearances on the telvision series Stargate Atlantis and Bones. She has co-hosted the ABC game show Wipeout since it began in 2008.

Jill's hobbies include singing, songwriting and dream analysis. Her fascination with dreams started at the age of ten when she began her dream journal, which she continues to keep up to date.
