Thanks for the info on Jessica Biel's background. I wonder why AIFTV hasn't included her in its annual report cards on TV's diversity.

Here's the lowdown on her:


A blend of French, English, German and Choctaw (Native American) ancestry, Jessica Claire Biel was born on March 3, 1982, in Ely, Minnesota.
