Bridgette Wilson Bio: Early Life, Parents, and Education
Bridgette is the daughter of Kathy and Dale Wilson, and grew up in a small coastal town, where in high school she was a part of the volleyball team. For her looks, stunning since she was a little girl, Bridgette was advised by everybody to compete in the Miss Teen USA pageant, and was victorious in 1990 when she was 17 years old. She finished high school in 1991 and after her reign as the Miss Teen USA ended, she decided to pursue acting.
Rise to Prominence and Career Decline
The role of Sonya Blade launched her to stardom, but she failed to use the momentum as she only appeared in a minor role in the film “Nixon” (1996), and co-starred in the Japanese film “Sweet Evil”, also known as “Final Vendetta”. However, before the ‘90s ended she made a couple notable appearances, such as in the romantic comedy-drama “The Real Blonde” in 1997, starring Matthew Modin, Catherine Keener and Daryl Hannah, featured in the horror film “I Know What You Did Last Summer”, and in 1998 starred in the not so successful drama film “Starstruck”. Bridgette also starred in the romantic comedy film “Love Stinks” next to French Stewart and Bill Bellamy, and made a minor appearance in the horror film “House on a Haunted Hill”, both in 1999.
Since the start of the 2000s, Bridgette’s career has slowly declined, and she became more focused on her family. She remained active as an actress until 2008, during which time she appeared in such films as “Extreme Ops” (2002), and then in 2005 she had a supporting role in the film “Shopgirl”, an adaptation of the novel written by Steve Martin.
