A member of Hollywood royalty, petite knockout Jordan Ladd has followed her parents' footsteps into the world of show business. Born Jordan Elizabeth Ladd on January 14, 1975, in Hollywood, she is the daughter of actress Cheryl Ladd ("Charlie's Angels) and producer David Ladd ("The Mod Squad"). Her grandfather is acting great Alan Ladd (Shane). At the tender age of two, Ladd made her acting debut opposite James Garner in a Polaroid commercial.
In the early '90s, while still in high school, she began appearing in television films that starred her mother, including "The Girl Who Came Between Them" and "Broken Promises: Taking Emily Back." By 1994, Ladd had branched out on her own, guest starring on "Saved by the Bell: The New Class" and starring opposite Alyssa Milano in the feature "Embrace of the Vampire." She earned a small role in "Nowhere."
Ladd portrayed Bette Davis' stand-in in the low-budget show business drama "Stand-Ins" before starring with her mother in the television film "Every Mother's Worst Fear." A year later, she landed her first high-profile role as a popular teenager who tortures Drew Barrymore in "Never Been Kissed." Barrymore, who also produced the film, offered Ladd the first crack at a role in her company's big-screen adaptation of "Charlie's Angels."
Not wanting to be stuck completely in the shadow of her mother, she politely declined. Instead, after being named one of the world's 100 Sexiest Women by Stuff magazine, Ladd starred as a strung-out actress vying for an Academy Award in E!'s first original movie, "Best Actress."
Over the next few years, Ladd established herself as an independent darling, appearing in films like "Boy's Life 3" and in the David Lynch short film "Darkened Room." She starred as the lead role in Eli Roth's 2002 horror film "Cabin Fever," which was a moderate success at the box office.
In 2004, she won the role of Penelope in the horror film "Club Dread," and starred in the direct-to-video horror "Madhouse." Ladd appeared opposite Anna Faris, Ryan Reynolds, and Justin Long in the independent romantic comedy "Waiting..."
After small role in the film "Inland Empire," she was cast as Shanna in Quentin Tarantino's segment "Death Proof" of the film "Grindhouse." She won acclaim for her performance as the character Madeline Matheson in the horror film "Grace." It was screened at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival. In 2010, she starred as Cynthia in "Wishing Well," a made-for-television film about a journalist from New York City who gets sent to a small town in Illinois to report on a legendary wishing well. She also stars in a project entitled "First Dates," playing the character Joanna.
