|Born July 11, 1966, Debbe Dunning has been in showbiz since the early 1990s, making a number of various guest appearances on television shows. She guest-starred on programs such as "Who's The Boss?", "Married...with Children", and "Baywatch." But Dunning's career didn't lift off until in 1993 when she was cast as Heidi Keppert, the "Tool Time" girl that would replace Pamela Anderson on the hit ABC comedy "Home Improvement." In Dunning's first season, "Home Improvement" finished number one in ratings. Dunning's fanbase grew strong, even though the actress often didn't have much more to say than her famous seven word line: "Does everybody know what time it is?" After some time, Dunning's character Heidi got some more attention as the series continued to be a hit with audiences.|
|Starting in 1997, Dunning's character became considered part of the regular "Home Improvement" cast, being listed in the opening credits. During her time on "Home Improvement", which recently ended its 8-year run, Dunning made guest appearances on other TV shows such as "American Gladiators," "Tales From the Crypt," "Silk Stalkings," and "Boy Meets World." She has had significant roles in two direct-to-video films: The Misery Brothers (1995), and Leprechaun 4: In Space (1996). Her most recent project, and likely most notable work, came in April 2000 in the Fox Family Channel horror movie The Spiral Staircase. She also has a career as a model. Dunning has also made a number of other appearances, including on "Hollywood Squares," and E!'s special "Wild on the Beach." Dunning is married to Olympic gold medalist Steve Timmons. They have one daughter. In a 1996 "Home Improvement" episode, Dunning's character gave birth to a daughter in a gas station, around the same time the actress' real daughter was born.|
