Christina Applegate plays Jen in Netflix series Dead To Me, which is now back for season two. Here's your need-to-know on the actress, including what else she's been in.
Dead To Me season two drops on Netflix on Friday 8 May, and we can't wait to see what twists and turns the second series has in store.
The dark comedy tells the story of Jen and Judy (played Christine Applegate and Linda Cardellini respectively), two grieving women who become friends after meeting at group therapy.
Things weren't what they seemed, however, as it transpired that it was Judy who had accidentally killed Jen's husband Ted in a hit and run, and that she joined the therapy sessions to befriend her.
Both actresses are well-known and have played a number of high profile roles before Dead To Me.
Christina, 48, is an actress from California.
She was born in Hollywood, and started acting when she was a child. Her mother Nancy Priddy is also an actress, and Christina's TV debut was alongside her in an episode of Days of Our Lives.
Christina has appeared in a number of popular films, including:
Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead (1991)
The Big Hit (1998)
The Sweetest Thing (2002)
Grand Theft Parsons (2003)
Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004)
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (2013)

Bad Moms (2016)
As well as Dead To Me, she also played the lead role in the following shows:
Samantha Who? (2007–2009)
Up All Night (2011–12)
