Shiri Freda Appleby (born December 7, 1978) is an American actress. She is known for her leading role as Liz Parker in the television series Roswell. Her film credits include A Time for Dancing (2002), where she was one of the two female main characters; Swimfan (2002); Havoc (2005) with Anne Hathaway; and Charlie Wilson's War (2007) with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts.

In 2008, Appleby joined the cast of the final season of ER, playing an intern named Daria Wade, before starring as Cate Cassidy in the CW drama Life Unexpected that ran for two seasons. In the summer of 2012, she starred as Lucy in the comedy Dating Rules from My Future Self. She had recurring roles on both the NBC drama series Chicago Fire and the HBO comedy-drama series Girls. Appleby currently stars in the Lifetime dramedy series UnREAL.


In Hebrew, the word shiri means either "my song," (or "my poem" or simply "sing" (in the imperative)). Appleby said her parents said that when she was born, she was like the song in their hearts.

She has a scar above her left eyebrow that she got when a neighbor's dog bit her when she was young. To get over her fear of dogs, she went on the show Emergency Vets, accompanying staff veterinarian Dr. Kevin Fitzgerald (she also overcame another phobia in the same episode by holding a live snake, one of Fitzgerald's patients) and shortly after adopted a Tabby, which she named Abby.

In July 2012, Appleby was engaged to her boyfriend of two years, chef and restaurateur Jon Shook, during a trip to Ventotene, Italy. Shook is the co-owner with Vinny Dotolo of the Los Angeles restaurants Animal, Son of a Gun, Trois Mec, and Jon & Vinny's. Shook said that he met Appleby through his business partner Dotolo's wife, who was friends with Appleby.

In December 2012, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child in early 2013. Appleby gave birth to a girl, Natalie Bouader Shook, on March 23, 2013. They have since married. In August 2015, it was announced that the couple are expecting their second child.
