When she arrived in Hollywood she began acting in short-run television shows and got her big break in the film "Clueless". She has also been in a whole slew of films in the last few years but it is her work in Mike Judge's King of the Hill as the character Luanne Platter that has gotten her the most consecutive work and attention.
