A gifted performer whose spontaneous wit earned her the role of Larry David's sardonic spouse on HBO's acclaimed series "Curb Your Enthusiasm," Cheryl Hines was born Sept. 21, 1965, in Miami Beach, Fla. After graduating from the University of Central Florida, she headed to Los Angeles to turn her dream of an acting career into reality.

To hone her talent for improvisational comedy, Hines trained at the renowned Groundlings Theater -- with Lisa Kudrow as her coach. Hines soon gained a measure of notoriety with appearances on highly rated TV series such as "Suddenly Susan" and "Friends." But it wasn't until she landed in "Curb Your Enthusiasm" that she found true fame -- scoring Emmy nods in 2003 and 2006 to boot.

Hines's feature-film work includes Along Came Polly (with Jennifer Aniston and Ben Stiller, 2004) and the part of Robin Williams's put-upon wife in the 2006 comedy RV.
