Always prim and proper in front of the cameras, this actress is a real red-haired sexpot in her real life. Lauren Holly was born October 28, 1963 in Bristol, Pennsylvania. With both her parents being professors it was hard to imagine Holly to choose another profession not to follow parents' path. Indeed, when Lauren entered Sarah Lawrence College to study English Literature there, it seemed she had made up her mind to become a teacher. Nevertheless, after college graduation young Holly moved to Los Angeles to try acting. The same year she was cast to star in a popular soap opera All My Children. Holly stayed with this project for three years and then appeared in the film Archie: To Riverdale and Back Again. Though with seven years of acting experience, Holly had her debut breakthrough role only in a movie Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story. The most successful film with Holly as a leading actress is a comedy Dumb and Dumber (1994). During a film shooting Holly met a comic film star Jim Carrey and married him in 1996, but eventually divorced in a year. The following year you may see Lauren Holly in a film You're So Cupid! in a role of Audrey Valentine.
