Jennifer Aniston is a versatile actress who was exposed to acting at an early age by her father, John Aniston, who starred for several years on the daytime drama Days of Our Lives, and her godfather, the late Telly Savalas.
Jennifer, who is of Greek descent, spent a year of her childhood living in Greece with her family, but relocated to New York when her father landed a role on the daytime drama, Love of Life. She had her first taste of acting at age 11 when she joined the Rudolf Steiner School's drama club. Her experience at the Rudolf Steiner School also helped Aniston develop a passion for art. At age 11, one of Aniston's paintings was selected to be displayed in an exhibit at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.
She began her professional training as a drama student at New York's High School of the Performing Arts. After graduating in 1987, Aniston won roles in such Off-Broadway productions as For Dear Life at New York's Public Theatre and Dancing on Checker's Grave. In 1989, she landed her first television role as a series regular on Molloy. Her other television credits include series regular roles on The Edge as well as Ferris Bueller, a recurring role on Herman's Head and guest-starring roles on such series as Quantum Leap and Burke's Law. But it was the long running television series, Friends, which shot her to stardom.
