Chyler Leigh Vital Stats

  • Date of Birth: April 10, 1982
  • Birthplace: Charlotte, North Carolina

Though only in her early 20s, Chyler Leigh has already held recurring roles in more than eight television series, including Safe Harbor, The Practice and Rocky Point. She also sexed up the film Not Another Teen Movie.

Talented and cute, Chyler Leigh is the type of girl we'd love to spend a day chilling with. Her short but diverse amount of TV roles makes her an in-demand star, while her movie stardom is only going to skyrocket in the years to come.

Leigh so impressed TV genius David E. Kelley that when his show Girls Club (in which Leigh starred) was canceled, he wrote her into the script of his ongoing hit series, The Practice.

Born on April 10, 1982, in Charlotte, North Carolina, Chyler Leigh Potts -- she dropped the "Potts" when she started acting -- grew up in Virginia Beach, Virginia. At age 12, she moved to Miami, Florida, with her mother. About two years later, Chyler began modeling, having sought out the opportunity after receiving encouragement from her friends.

Boasting a pretty face, Chyler Leigh was a natural when it came to starring in ads and soon enough, she was featured in several local television commercials. Her first serious gig as an actress came in 1996, when she began cohosting the show Hall Pass. The following year she landed a brief role on a children's show called Kinetic City Super Crew.

In 1999, Leigh survived her first busy pilot season, as she auditioned for various roles in upcoming television series. She earned a role on Saving Graces, a comedy on the WB, but the show wasn't picked up. Although she was cast in Safe Harbor, the show didn't last more than one season.

Chyler's single major movie credit to date is the comedy spoof Not Another Teen Movie, in the lead role. She married actor Nathan West in 2002, the same year she appeared in the short-lived series Girls Club and That '80s Show. She upgraded to The Practice in 2003 and then landed regular roles in two new television shows (making their debuts in 2005): Rocky Point and Reunion. Clearly, this young mother of one is on the way up.
