Jordan Ladd

An angel in her own right, actress Jordan Ladd will soon add yet another film project to her already impressive resume. She recently returned from Mexico starring alongside the Broken Lizard Comedy Troupe (Super Troopers) and Bill Paxton in Fox Searchlight's island resort comedy caper Club Dread, which will be released in Fall 2003.

Ladd previously portrayed a snotty high school student who tormented the likes of Drew Barrymore and Leelee Sobieski in FOX's romantic-comedy Never Been Kissed. She also appeared in the dysfunctional superhero saga The Specials, starring alongside Rob Lowe and Jamie Kennedy.

Though her acting debut came at age 2, opposite James Garner in a Polaroid commercial, her career finally got a jump-start once she returned to Los Angeles after studying for a year at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.

Since then, she has appeared with Mimi Rogers and Gabriel Byrne in the acclaimed HBO feature Weapons of Mass Destruction, as well as the Gregg Araki film Nowhere, in which she portrayed a spiritually minded sexpot.

In addition, Ladd has starred in E! Entertainment Television's first original production Best Actress. She also traveled to Toronto where she starred in the Lifetime Original telefilm The Deadly Look of Love, opposite Vincent Spano. On the horizon is the independent feature The Perfect You as the virginal girlfriend to Chris Eigeman as well as the thriller Puzzled. Ladd most recently guest starred on Alan Ball's new HBO series Six Feet Under.

With more plum roles due out this year, it is quite apparent that this young actress is soon to climb the ladder of Hollywood success.
