Before voicing a Frozen Disney princess, Kristen Bell, then 11, played a tree and a banana in a local Michigan production of Raggedy Ann and Andy. The daughter of a nurse and TV news director went on to appear in a K-Mart ad and TV commercials for OfficeMax and United Way. While attending New York University, she treaded the boards in various off-Broadway and Broadway plays like The Crucible and Reefer Madness (a role she reprised in 2005 for Showtime). She dropped out eventually and made her way to Hollywood where she quickly got work in The Shield and Deadwood. In 2004, she landed the part of the titular spunky, smart sleuth Veronica Mars, which garnered her the attention of critics and casting folks. When the show was unfortunately cancelled by The CW in 2007, she moved on with Heroes, Gossip Girl and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. After dating and living with writer-producer Kevin Mann from 2003-2007, the House of Lies star fell for Dax Shepard in late 2007. They were engaged in 2009, but didn’t wed until October 2013, which was after the March 2013 birth of daughter Lincoln. Second daughter Delta follows in December 2014.
