Kellie Martin (born October 16, 1975) is an American actress. She was born in Riverside, California.
Among many roles in motion pictures, made-for-TV movies and television series, she is most famous for her role as Rebecca "Becca" Thatcher on the drama Life Goes On, which ran on ABC from 1989 to 1993.
In 1994, she was given her own series, acting alongside Tyne Daly in the period drama Christy, which ran for 21 episodes. In 1997, she starred in the 6-episode long Crisis Center.
In 1995, she starred in The Face on the Milk Carton, a TV film based on the book by Caroline Cooney about a teenager who finds out she was kidnapped 13 years ago from her real family and had been raised by the parents of her kidnapper.
In 1998, she took on the role of medical student Lucy Knight on ER, a role she played until 2000. For ER fans, the episode in which she died is considered to be one of the very best by most polls, always within the top 10 episodes. Kellie reportedly asked to be written out of the show to concentrate on her studies. Additionally, the recent death of her sister made her uncomfortable in hospital settings.
In 2002, Lifetime started a television series, Fiona, based on Warren Adler's The Fiona FitzGerald Mysteries as a starring vehicle for Martin, but it was never aired.
In 2003 Fiona was changed to Mystery Woman now airing on The Hallmark Channel. New episodes are still in production according to IMDB.
After her stint on Life Goes On, Kellie Martin got a reputation as being a staple in many television movies, most notably Death of a Cheerleader with Tori Spelling.
