Tiffani Thiessen stars as Elizabeth Burke in all seasons of USA Network's original series White Collar.

Thiessen is an American television and film actress. A versatile performer, she has proven her talent from comedy to drama in a variety of film and television roles. From Woody Allen's comedy Hollywood Ending, to Beverly Hills, 90210, Thiessen's charisma has kept her career moving constantly forward and has gained her the adoration of millions internationally.

Thiessen was recently seen in What About Brian and in a nine-episode guest-starring role on NBC's Good Morning, Miami. In 2003, she starred the FOX series Fastlane with Peter Facinelli and Bill Bellamy, directed by McG. She also guest-starred on the NBC hit comedy Just Shoot Me in a three-episode arc, portraying a columnist who becomes romantically involved with David Spade's character, and appeared in a recurring role on the ABC comedy Two Guys and a Girl.

She began modeling at the age of eight and soon went on to star in the television series Saved By the Bell for five seasons. At the same time, she made her feature film debut in Son In Law opposite Pauly Shore. In 1993, she showed her range when Aaron Spelling cast her in Beverly Hills, 90210, where she portrayed the multi-layered Valerie Malone for five seasons.

Her other feature film roles include the comedy Ladies Man; the independent film Speedway Junky with Jesse Bradford, Jonathan Taylor Thomas and Daryl Hannah; Love Stinks with Tyra Banks and French Stewart; and the horror/comedy spoof Shriek! If you Know What I did Last Friday 13th opposite Tom Arnold.

In 2005, Tiffani started up her own production company called Tit 4 Tat Productions while directing her first short film entitled Just Pray the same year. Just Pray went on to win many awards at top film festivals around the country. She is also set to direct Hung, produced by Anne Clements.

Thiessen and her husband, Brady Smith, welcomed their first child in June 2010.[1] This is the reason she only appeared sporadically in the first half of season 2; these scenes were filmed in front of a green screen in Los Angeles.[2]
