ALICIA SILVERSTONE - Biography
Few actresses have the opportunity to gain the leading role in their first feature
film. Alicia Silverstone did just that. She was chosen from a plethora of actresses to
portray the lead in "The Crush."
Silverstone then gained worldwide acclaim as 'Cher,' the quintessential Beverly
Hills teenager with a heart of gold in the hit feature film "Clueless." She soon formed
her production company, First Kiss, in a multi-million dollar deal with Columbia Pictures,
where she produced her company's first feature, "Excess Baggage." Silverstone also
co-starred as 'Batgirl' in "Batman and Robin," "Blast From the Past," and was recently
seen in the Shakespearean musical, "Love's Labour's Lost" opposite Kenneth Branagh.
The 24 year-old actress was born and raised in San Francisco and spent her
summers in England, the native country of her parents. It was while visiting relatives
there that her love for theatre grew.
Before she was cast in "The Crush," Silverstone guest-starred on "The Wonder
Years" as Fred Savage's "dreamgirl." Silverstone's performance in "The Crush" caught
the eye of the rock group Aerosmith and she starred in their next three videos. The first,
"Cryin," was voted Best Video of All Time on MTV. Alicia herself has earned a total of
six MTV Movie Awards as well as a Blockbuster Award, Nickelodeon Award, American
Comedy Award and the prestigious National Board of Review Award.
