Model and actress Donna Dixon started her career upon finishing her degree in anthropology at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. She became successful early in her modeling career, becoming Miss Virginia USA in 1976 and earning representation with the Wilhelmina Modeling Agency. Her big break came in her first recurring role, on the cross-dressing television sitcom "Bosom Buddies," which starred Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari. Dixon was cast as the beautiful nurse Sonny Lumet, who lives at the same women-only hotel as the characters played by Hanks and Scolari. Dixon's won her first film role in 1983 when she had a supporting part in the wild comedy "Doctor Detroit." During this film, she became involved with star Dan Aykroyd, and the two would marry later that year. Many of her subsequent film roles came in movies that also featured Aykroyd, including the lead female part in "Spies Like Us," Aykroyd's 1985 Cold War comedy with Chevy Chase. Dixon had small roles in television series like "Who's the Boss" and "Moonlighting" throughout the 1980s. She is also well known for her brief but memorable part as the Dream Woman in the Mike Myers and Dana Carvey 1992 comedy "Wayne's World." Although he continued to act occasionally, Dixon spent most of her time raising her three daughters with Aykroyd.
