Natalia Cigliuti is an American film and television actress known for her roles as Lindsay Warner on Saved By the Bell: The New Cla$s in the mid-'90s, Anita Santos Warner on All My Children, and Roberta Gilardi on Raising the Bar. She was raised with two brothers (one younger and one older )in New York City by her parents who moved from Uruguay, hence her fluency in speaking Spanish. When she was 14, Natalia began her acting career as she was discovered by a local talent agency during an eighth-grade fashion show. She started with doing various commercials as a teen before auditioning for television roles. Even as Natalia began working professionally, she was still able to finish her studies, graduating from Crescenta Valley High School in La Crescenta, California.
At 15, she already landed her first television series, appearing as Lindsay Warner, the most popular girl in Bayside High, on the spin-off of the NBC teen show Saved by the Bell. She then worked with two Aaron Spelling shows -- a recurring role as Chloe Davis in the teen drama Beverly Hills, 90210 and a lead spot as Rachel Whittaker on the FOX drama Pacific Palisades, which lasted for only one season. Afterwards, she made several guest appearances on other TV series such as That '70s Show, Sabrina, the Teenage Witch, and CSI: Miami.
On the big screen, Cigliuti played Claire Fence, a kidnap victim whom Dennis Rodman (Simon) was tasked to save in Simon Sez (1999). She also had minor roles in the comedies Held Up (2000), which starred Jamie Foxx and Nia Long, and Joe Dirt (2001), with David Spade playing the title character. From February 2004 to April 2006, Natalia portrayed the character of Anita Santos Warner on the ABC daytime soap All My Children. She departed the show as her character moved permanently from Pine Valley to California. In 2008, TNT hired her as Bobbi Gilardi, one of the criminal law attorneys in the legal drama Raising Bar.… Expand
