After starting her career as a concert cellist, ethereal actress Lori Singer made the smooth transition to the screen with a handful of supporting parts that later helped her land leading roles. Singer came to acting via Juilliard and a brief stint as a fashion model, before making her series debut as a naïve Midwesterner trying to make good in the big city on the short-lived drama "Fame" (NBC, 1982-83). But her leading role in the hit movie, "Footloose" (1984) helped propel her career to greater heights. Singer next delivered co-starring performances in "The Falcon and the Snowman" (1985) and "The Man with One Red Shoe" (1985), while earning critical praise for her turn in the otherwise mediocre noir "Summer Heat" (1987). Following appearances in little-seen indies like "Equinox" (1992) and "Sunset Grill" (1993), Singer gave arguably one of her finest performances as a depressed cellist in Robert Altman's excellent ensemble drama, "Short Cuts" (1993). Following a brief return to series television with "VR.5" (Fox, 1995), Singer left the acting business altogether in order to refocus on performing music, only to re-emerge in 2011 with a guest starring performance on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (NBC, 1999- ), which sparked renewed interest in the enigmatic actress' career.
