BIOGRAPHY:

Cheryl Hines knew she wanted to be an actress since high school. But at age thirty, she found herself bartending in Los Angeles with no money, no agent, and no life path. It was a crossroads for Cheryl: Does she move back to her home state of Florida and go back to school, or does she give it her all and fight to make her dream happen? Cheryl decided to fight. "I decided I would rather die trying," Cheryl says. After many failed auditions, Cheryl received her first break when the director of Curb Your Enthusiasm saw her performing a comedy sketch at a local club. He asked her to come in the next day for an audition; four hours later, she got the part.
