Date of Birth : Sep 21st 1965
American actress, best known for her role as Larry David’s wife on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Before making her break in Hollywood, Hines worked as a waitress, television reporter, telephone operator as well as a personal assistant to Rob Reiner when she moved to LA. Though Reiner did not play a critical role in her career, he would come watch her shows when she began acting. Hines moved to Los Angeles, California, to pursue an acting career and began by doing improvisational comedy at The Groundlings Theater. Among the people she studied with was Lisa Kudrow.
She also learned to write comedy sketches, which served her well when working on Curb Your Enthusiasm on HBO as Larry David’s wife, Cheryl. The show is written as retroscripting in which the plot outlines are generally and loosely drawn and the individual characters improvise to create the dialogue.
“When the show first came out, people from Tallahassee thought, ‘Well, maybe Cheryl got married,’” she recalls of the show’s initial reception. “Sometimes, I do feel like I live two lives.”
In July 2006, Hines received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on Curb Your Enthusiasm.
In films, she was one of the stars of RV opposite Robin Williams, Waitress with Keri Russell, and the 2008 mockumentary comedy The Grand, a spoof of the World Series of Poker.
On November 24, 2008, TV Guide reported that Hines will co-star in the new ABC sitcom In The Motherhood, where she will be acting out real-life stories submitted by mothers. She has confirmed that she will also continue her role on Curb Your Enthusiasm.
