Peri Gilpin (born Peri Kay Oldham; May 27, 1961) is an American actress. She portrayed Roz Doyle in the U.S. television series Frasier, and Kim Keeler in the ABC Family television drama Make It or Break It.
Gilpin was born in Waco, Texas, as Peri Kay Oldham, daughter of James Franklin Oldham and his wife Sandra Jo Hauck. After her parents divorced, her mother married Wes Gilpin in 1969. Peri then took her stepfather's surname, as her mother (a model and actress) thought that it would be fun for the whole family to work together.
Gilpin grew up in Dallas, where her family encouraged her acting abilities. After studying at the Dallas Theater Center, she pursued acting at the University of Texas at Austin and the British American Drama Academy in London.
Gilpin appeared on the TV series Cheers, playing Holly Matheson in the 21st episode of the 11th season, which aired in April, 1993.
From 1993 until 2004, Gilpin played Roz Doyle in the television series Frasier, a spin-off of Cheers, starring Kelsey Grammer as Frasier Crane, the role he had played on Cheers since 1984.

In 2009, Gilpin appeared in the ABC Family drama Make It or Break It, for which she received a Gracie Award in the category of "Outstanding Female Actor in a Supporting Role in a Drama Series".
Gilpin and Frasier co-star Jane Leeves ran a production company, "Bristol Cities" (named from the cockney rhyming slang), whose projects included a Fox network pilot titled Minister of Divine, an American remake of the British sitcom The Vicar of Dibley with Kirstie Alley (another Cheers regular) in a starring role.

She also had a recurring role in Men at Work on TBS as editor of Full Steam magazine. In the second season of Scorpion, she was introduced as Katherine Cooper, a team superior in homeland security.
