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. Despite her parents' request, she pursued a modeling career. At age 16, she landed her first commercial, for Polaroid cameras, and has been acting ever since. Miller is married to Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence. They have 3 children.
Miller has appeared in the shows The Drew Carey Show, Northern Exposure, Seinfeld, Party of Five, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. She can be seen in the films Deceived and Love and Happiness.
She currently plays the character Ellie Torres in Bill Lawrence's new show Cougar Town
