Leigh Taylor-Young

Highest Rated: 83% Jagged Edge (1985)
Birthday: Jan 25, 1945
Birthplace: Not Available
Sylphlike actress LeighTaylor-Young first came to the attention of televiewers in 1966, when she was cast as Rachael Welles on the nighttime soap Peyton Place. She rose to film prominence with a series of "flower child" characterizations, notably the hash-brownie baking heroine of I Love You, Alice B. Toklas. Previously wed to her Peyton Place co-star Ryan O'Neal, Taylor-Young began curtailing her acting appearance upon her 1978 marriage to Columbia Pictures executive Guy McElwane. She reemerged as a character actress in the early 1980s, essaying such meaty film roles as the surprise murder witness in The Jagged Edge (1985), and playing recurring characters on such series as The Devlin Connection (1982, as Lauren Dane), The Hamptons (1983, as Lee Chadway) and Dallas (1987-88 season, as Kimberly Cryder). In 1993, Leigh Taylor-Young won an Emmy award for her ongoing portrayal of Rachel Harris on the weekly TVer Picket Fences.
