Bio

Erika Christensen is an American actress whose film appearances include Traffic (2000), Swimfan (2002) and The Perfect Score (2004), among others. She also co-starred in the short-lived drama Six Degrees.

She also starred as Julia Braverman-Graham on NBC's drama series Parenthood. As the youngest Braverman - and her parents' golden child - Julia seems to have it all: beauty, brains, love and success. She's a talented lawyer at a top corporate firm while her loving husband, Joel (Sam Jaeger), supports her ambitions as a stay-at-home dad to their daughter Sydney.

Christensen starred opposite Jonathan Tucker and Sarah Michelle Gellar in Veronika Decides to Die directed by award-winning director Emily Young, and also starred in Andrew Jenkin's How to Rob a Bank opposite Nick Stahl, and in Kevin Connolly's directorial debut The Gardener of Eden opposite Lukas Haas and Giovanni Ribisi.

Christensen stunned audiences in Steven Soderbergh's Oscar- and Golden Globe-winning film Traffic as Michael Douglas' drug addicted daughter. She, along with the cast, received a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by the Cast of a Theatrical Motion Picture.

Additionally, Christensen won MTV's Breakthrough Female Performance Award at the 2001 MTV Movie Awards.

Christensen also starred in Robert Schwentke's blockbuster hit, Flight Plan, opposite Jodie Foster and Peter Sarsgaard. She also starred in Mike Binder's critically acclaimed film The Upside of Anger opposite Kevin Costner, Joan Allen, Evan Rachel Wood, Keri Russell and Alicia Witt.

Next she starred in John Polson's high school thriller Swimfan opposite Jesse Bradford. Additionally, she starred in Brian Robbins' The Perfect Score opposite Scarlett Johansson and in Bob Dolman's The Banger Sisters opposite Susan Sarandon and Goldie Hawn.

On the small screen, Christensen was seen opposite Hope Davis, Jay Hernandez, Bridget Moynahan, and Campbell Scott in J.J. Abram's television series 6 Degrees.
