“I guess you could say I’m the ultimate hyphen,” laughs Claudia Christian. “I’m an actress-writer-singer-songwriter-director-producer-voice over artist-chef–and I’m sure there’s a few more monikers I’m forgetting!”
She landed her first TV series at 18 on NBC’s nighttime drama Berringers and her first studio feature at 20 playing a male alien trapped in a stripper’s body in New Line Cinema’s cult hit The Hidden. Claudia went on to star in studio pictures such as Clean and Sober with Morgan Freeman and Michael Keaton and Hexed, a Columbia Pictures black comedy that Christian counts as one of her favorite roles. Over 50 films and hundreds of TV shows later, Claudia has worked with George Clooney, Sharon Stone, Charlie Sheen, Nicolas Cage and countless other luminaries. She made an indelible mark on television as Commander Susan Ivanova of space station Babylon 5 in the Hugo Award winning, hit show of the same name.
