American television actress who played the role of Kimberly in Melrose Place (1992–1997) and most notably originated the role of Bree, a red-haired, porcelain-skinned perfect homemaker in the hit series, Desperate Housewives (2004-2012), for which she was nominated for three Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, five Screen Actors Guild Awards, winning two, and an Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

Cross began her professional acting career in daytime soaps. She landed her role in Melrose Place in 1992, but a year later her significant other, Richard Jordan, died. She felt compelled to leave the entertainment world to complete her Masters in psychology. Her return to entertainment was marked by a one-year stint in Everwood in 2002 and guest appearances in Seinfeld and Cheers. When she landed the part of Bree in Desperate Housewives, she achieved more fame than she had in her prior twenty-year working history.

The actress wed stockbroker Tom Mahoney on 24 June 2006 in San Gabriel, California. She began fertility treatments shortly after they were married. In January 2007 she was committed to bedrest and on 20 February 2007 gave birth in Los Angeles to fraternal twins, both girls, named Savannah and Eden, born shortly before her 45th birthday.
