Born in 1951, American actress Cheryl Ladd's first major role came in 1970 as Jill Valentine on "Josie and the Pussycats". For more than 40 years, she has been a popular and highly sought-after television actress.
Best known for the original "Charlie's Angels" (1977 - 1981) and "Las Vegas" (2003 - 2007). Ladd has had guest-starring roles on just about every mainstream genre of TV series, as well as roles in an equally diverse range of television movies--including horror films.
While not every film Ladd has been in can be described as good by even the most generous-hearted reviewer, she can usually be counted on to be a bright spot even in the most wretched of melodramas--and the same goes for the horror films and thrillers she's been in. Horror highlights on her extensive resume include "Satan's School for Girls" (1973), "Jekyll & Hyde" (1990), "The Haunting of Lisa", "Kiss and Tell" (both in 1996), and "Every Mother's Worst Fear" (1999)
Some of Ladd's few excursions into non-television projects also include thrillers or horror films -- "The Treasure of Jamaica Reef"/"Evil in the Deep" (1975) and "Poison Ivy" (1992).
