Jenna Elfman is an actress who is best known for her leading roles in the sitcom "Dharma & Greg" and NBC's "1600 Penn."
Jenna began her professional career as a dancer, appearing in Depeche Mode's music video “Halo” in 1990. She continued to dance in music videos before acting in national television commercials, and earned her first television role on the ABC sitcom "Townies." The show was not a success, but Jenna's performance on "Townies" caught the attention of her "Dharma & Greg" co-star Lauren Graham, which ultimately led her to the lead role in the series.
"Dharma & Greg," which co-starred Thomas Gibson, was broadcasted successfully for five years from 1997 until 2002. During this time, the show was nominated for over twenty awards, including Emmys, Golden Globes, and Satellite Awards. In 1998, Jenna won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy series. She has gone on to star in many television shows such as “Damages,” “Shameless,” and “Accidentally on Purpose.” She is also known for her roles in the films "Can't Hardly Wait" in 1998, "Keeping the Faith" in 2000, and "Friends with Benefits" in 2011.
In 1995, Jenna married her husband Bodhi, who is also an actor. They have two sons together: Story Elias and Easton Quinn Monroe.
