Christina Applegate: Trivia for Kelly Bundy of Married with Children

Trivia for actress Christina Applegate who rose to fame with her character Kelly Bundy on the sitcom Married with Children.


If you are under the age of 20, you probably know her from two comedy series, Samantha Who? and Up All Night. However if you are closer to 30 and older, she is probably “Kelly Bundy” to you.

Do you remember the hilarious sitcom Married with Children that told the story of the Bundys. The show ended in 1997 after a long and successful run, and Applegate’s career progressed much better than her on-screen brother David Faustino (Bud Bundy). She has kept getting guest and leading roles and starred in various successful TV series.  Currently, she is starring in the modern comedy Up All Night.
