Best known as the level-headed Dr. Addison Montgomery on the ABC mega-hit Grey’s Anatomy, Kate Walsh got her start portraying Drew’s girlfriend during a five-year run on The Drew Carey Show until 2002. As she found more work in 2004 on the TV series’ Karen Sisco and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, her memorable small screen portrayals landed her roles in hit films Kicking & Screaming and Under the Tuscan Sun.
Before her big break, the California-born, Arizona-raised actress also modeled in Japan in the ’80s and became involved in regional theater during her time at the University of Arizona.
Walsh married her fiancé of only four months, movie executive Alex Young, in September 2007. In November 2008, Young filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.
