Tiffani Thiessen, who currently plays Elizabeth Burke on “White Collar,” turns 39 years old today (January 23)!
Tiffani Thiessen got her big break in 1989, when she was cast as Kelly Kapowski on NBC’s “Saved by the Bell.” The pretty young actress became a role model to many young girls and helped (along with the rest of the cast) to make the show a hit. It also helped that Kelly Kapowski and Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) were one of the most popular TV couples of the 90s.
The actress then appeared in “Saved by the Bell: The College Years,” which lasted just one season, and acted in the TV movie “Saved by the Bell: Wedding in Las Vegas.”
Then, in 1994, the beauty joined the cast of “Beverly Hills 90210.” She appeared as bad girl Valerie Malone in a whopping 136 episodes of the popular drama.
Thiessen then appeared on “Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place,” “Just Shoot Me,” “Fastlane,” “Good Morning, Miami,” and “What About Brian” before being cast as Elizabeth Burke on USA Network’s “White Collar” in 2009. She currently plays the wife of Special Agent Peter Burke. Catch the show Tuesdays at 10!
