While Swanson was young, she expressed an interest in acting and began by taking part in television commercials – one of her first appearances was in a doll house commercial which would lead to several more opportunities. Meantime, she attended and matriculated from El Toro High School.

Later, Kristy would join The Actors Workshop and was still mostly given television advertising roles. She would then appear as a guest in TV series such as “Cagney and Lacy” and “Alfred Hitchcock Presents”. In 1986, she made her film debut in “Pretty and Pink” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” though only minor roles, so her first major role came in 1986’s “Deadly Friend” in which she played Samantha, and was then cast in the adaptation of the best-selling novel entitled “Flowers in the Attic”. She continued her career by appearing in numerous television shows, including “Knot’s Landing”, and had a lead role in both “Nightingales” and “BL Stryker” but they were short lived. She then concentrated mostly on films, and starred in 1992’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” which was not an initial hit but eventually found success. Other films she was a part of include “The Program” and “Hot Shots!” Thanks to her numerous opportunities her net worth started to increase.

In “Higher Learning”(1995) she played Kristen Connor, a student who’s discovering her sexuality; the success of the film and her well-received performance by critics helped increase Swanson’s net worth a bit. She also appeared in the film adaptation of “The Phantom” and “8 Heads in a Duffel Bag” which didn’t really find success at the box office. In 1998, she joined “Early Edition” playing Erica Paget who would become a love interest of the main character Gary Hobson. The following year, she appeared in the movie “Big Daddy” as the girlfriend of Adam Sandler, then in 2000 she returned to television in “Grapevine” which was a revamp of a 1992 television series. Her net worth rose steadily.

In 2002, Kristen posed nude for Playboy Magazine, and would win in the television program “Skating with Celebrities”. Five years later, she would appear as a guest in “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” and the lesbian web series “3Way”. In 2009, she made her first film in 10 years entitled “What If…” and one of her latest appearances was in an episode of “One Tree Hill”.

For her personal life, it is known that Swanson dated actor Alan Thicke and they were engaged in 1988, however did not marry. She also had a relationship with her “Skating with Celebrities” partner Lloyd Eisler despite the fact that he was married. They had a son and eventually married just a month after Eisler’s divorce in 2009. The family currently live in Santa Clarita, California.

# Quote
1 I’ve always been this strong-willed person and I’ve always been in love with acting. I love every aspect of show business and that includes both the show part of it and the business part of it.
2 I won’t date a guy who doesn’t own a toolbox. I’m not saying you need to be able to knock down a wall or build a house or anything like that. But I’ve been out with a couple of guys who didn’t own toolboxes, and they couldn’t even change a light bulb.
