Cheryl Hines honed her craft with L.A.'s well-known improv troupe The Groundlings. One of her teachers was "Friends" star Lisa Kudrow, and Hines later played woman #2 on "Friends" in 2000.

The skills Hines learned with the Groundlings helped her land the role of Larry David's wife on "Curb Your Enthusiasm," the HBO series that premiered in 1999.

More recently, Hines voiced a white lion named Kate in the 2004 series "Father of the Pride" and starred in films such as "RV," with Robin Williams, and the comedy "Keeping Up With The Steins."
