Lauren Holly - Rotten Tomatoes

Lauren Holly



American actress Lauren Holly has herself admitted that turning down the female lead in the Jim Carrey vehicle Ace Ventura, Pet Detective (1994) may not have been the wisest career move. Holly was acting on instinct, having co-starred with another highly individual comedian, Andrew Dice Clay, in 1990's forgettable The Adventures of Ford Fairlane. But when profits from Ace Ventura soared, Lauren was more than willing to sign on for the subsequent Carrey vehicle, Dumb and Dumber (1995), during the filming of which she and Carrey became an item. The actress has kept busy ever since her first important TV role as Betty in Archie: To Riverdale and Back Again (1990) and a stint on the ABC soap opera All My Children. Prior to her recent film success, Holly was perhaps best known for her role as Deputy Maxine Stewart on the CBS drama Picket Fences .



In 1995 the actress played a doctor in Sydney Pollack's remake of Sabrina, and went a different direction in 1996's comedy Down Periscope, in which she played Lieutenant Emily Lake. Holly took on a supporting role in Any Given Sunday (1999), a rousing sports drama from director Oliver Stone, and joined Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt to play a supporting role in 2000's romantic comedy What Women Want. The following year Holly would voice Chihiro's mother in the US rerelease of the acclaimed anime fantasy Spirited Away the following year, and from 2005 until 2008 became known for her role as Director Jenny Shepard on CBS' long-running police procedural NCIS. Holly voiced the character of Haulie on the Adventures of Chuck & Friends, an animated series for children in 2010, and continues to be active in film and television.
