After brief screen stints in 1991 TV movie
Deception: A Mother’s Secret
and 1996’s drama
, Faris finds a role she can really sink her teeth into with
. She plays Jannelle Bay, who falls prey to a Valentine’s Day killer with a steel hook. More worryingly, isn’t there a missing apostrophe in that title?
On the home front, Faris met her ex-husband, Ben Idra, while filming
. They married years later in 2004, but divorced after four years citing irreconcilable differences..
Faris is best known for her comedy chops, and she shines here as a snarky high schooler. The drama goes on around her.
