Mini Bio (1)

Kelli Williams was born in California on June 8, 1970. Though she had appeared in commercials since she was a baby, she was discovered by her agent at her high school play ("Romeo and Juliet"), in which she starred as Juliet opposite General Hospital (1963)'s Steve Burton. In the early 1990s, she appeared with Tony Danza and George C. Scott in the stage production "Wrong Turn at Lungfish". There Goes My Baby (1994) was her feature film debut, co-starring with ER (1994) doc Noah Wyle, Dermot Mulroney (My Best Friend's Wedding (1997) and Copycat (1995)) and Ricky Schroder (NYPD Blue (1993)). She has also done a long list of TV movies, as well as guest appearances before and during her run as Lindsay Dole Donnell on ABC's The Practice (1997). In the summer of 2003, her critically acclaimed seven year stint on the show ended, and she has since signed for guest spots on different series, and filmed a made-for-TV movie, A Boyfriend for Christmas (2004) opposite her real-life mother Shannon Wilcox and former TV-father-in-law Charles Durning.

During the second season of The Practice (1997), Kelli became pregnant with her first child. The pregnancy was not written into the show, and so the writers gave her character the job of re-decorating the law office...easily hiding her expanding belly behind tables and paintings. By the time the fifth season came around, Ms. Williams became pregnant once again, but this time 'Lindsay' was newly married to senior partner 'Bobby' and writers were able to fit it into the storyline. In the show's seventh season, Kelli became 'pregos' once again and, although her on-screen marriage was still on (but hanging by a thread), producers failed to make 'Lindsay' pregnant.
Stepsister of Marc Rocco, Jennifer Rocco and Lucien Rocco.
Stepdaughter of Alex Rocco.
When Kelli lived in the upper Bel Air district of Los Angeles as a youngster, her neighbors were Jerry Lewis, Johnny Carson, Kenny Rogers, Sonny Bono and Cher (then Sonny & Cher).
Ex-sister-in-law of Zuleikha Robinson.
