Christa Miller was the actress who played Jordan Sullivan on Scrubs. She also was the music supervisor


Christa was born in New York City, daughter of model Bonnie Trompeter. As a toddler, Christa Miller was photographed by the acclaimed Francesco Scavullo for an Ivory Snow ad with her mother, throwing her into entertainment at a very young age. At age 3, she appeared on the cover of "Redbook". Christa aspired to be an actress, but her father wanted her to be a lawyer, and her mother, a 1960s supermodel, wanted her to avoid the entertainment business due to its difficulty and stress.
