Fun Facts About Kellie Martin (Source: Wikipedia)

1) Martin loved to perform for her close-knit family. She began her acting career at age seven, when her aunt, who was a nanny for actor Michael Landon's children, helped her land a guest spot on the Landon produced series Father Murphy. At the age of eleven, she was a contestant during Young People's Week on Card Sharks.

2) Among many roles on motion pictures, made-for-TV movies and television series, she is perhaps most famous for her role as Rebecca "Becca" Thacher on the drama Life Goes On, which ran on ABC (1989–1993), and for her role as med student Lucy Knight on the NBC drama ER (1998–2000). Martin also contributed the voice of Daphne Blake on the animated series A Pup Named Scooby-Doo and that of Molly Tasmanian Devil on Taz-Mania, and made several appearances as Tracy Nash on Valerie's Family. She also played the role of Emily in 1989's Troop Beverly Hills and Sherry in 1993's Matinee.

3) In 2012, Martin played Army Captain Nicole Galassini on the Lifetime Network television series Army Wives.

4) Martin graduated from Yale University in 2001 with a degree in art history. She was a member of Saybrook College. She married Keith Christian on May 15, 1999 in his hometown of Polson, Montana. The pair had their first child, a daughter named Margaret "Maggie" Heather Christian, on November 4, 2006, named after Martin's sister Heather, who died due to lupus erythematosus at age 19.

5) Martin currently owns and operates her own toy store and as a result, she has put much of her acting career aside.

‘The Christmas Ornament' airs Saturday night, November 16 at 8:00pm on the Hallmark Channel.
