Actress Angela Harmon

Angela Harmon biography

Angela Harmon was born in Dallas, Texas, on August 10, 1972. A model from an early age, beauty was in her genes as both her parents were former models.

She won the national cover competition for Seventeen magazine at age 15, selected from a group of 63,000 other teenagers. A car was one of the competition's prizes. After a trip to New York to participate in a national photo shoot, Harmon returned to his studies at Highland Park High School. Upon graduating in 1990, Harmon settled in New York and began modeling, although her childhood dream was to become an actress.

Her successful modeling career included appearances in magazines such as Vogue, Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, GQ, and Esquire, as well as European fashion magazines. She also strutted her stuff down runways in the world's fashion capitals, catching the eyes of designers such as Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, and Isaac Mizrahi.

After a few years of modeling, she began taking lessons from acting coaches in New York and Los Angeles. Her dream came true when David Hasselhoff saw Angie on a plane. Hasselhoff and the producers of Baywatch Nights were looking for an actress to play Ryan McBride, the female lead for a spinoff of the most popular syndicated television show of all time. And they thought she would be perfect for the role. Harmon was hired after her audition, and she was ready to make her network television debut.

In 1995, the same year Baywatch Nights debuted, Harmon made a guest appearance on the television series Renegade. Following his role as Ryan McBride on Baywatch Nights, Harmon starred in the television series C-16: FBI in 1997 with Eric Roberts. She also gave the film a shot in the 1997 independent film Lawn Dogs, directed by John Duigan. The film gained some exposure when it was screened at the Toronto Film Festival and the Sundance Film Festival.

Harmon's big break came in 1998 with her role as Assistant District Attorney Abbie Carmichael on the long-running courtroom drama Law & Order, the show that also spawned Benjamin Bratt's career. She has also appeared as Abbie Carmicheal on Law & Order:

Special Victims Unit, a spinoff of the hit NBC show, in 1999 and 2000. In March 2000, Harmon made headlines when her boyfriend, New York Giants defensive back Jason Sehorn, proposed to her during her appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jay Leno on March 13. Leno, who was in on the plan, had just asked her if she was dating anyone special, to which she replied that she doesn't discuss her personal life in public. She accepted the marriage proposal on national television, and the couple exchanged vows on June 9, 2001.

Since Harmon departed from Law & Order in 2001, it seems her career has taken a backseat to her family life. Although she no longer works steadily on television, Angie appeared in the 2001 film Good Advice and starred as Susan Wilson in the made-for-TV movie Video Voyeur: The Susan Wilson Story in 2002. She also lent her voice to the character of Commissioner Barbara Gordon in the TV series Batman Beyond from 2000 to 2001. In 2003, Angie Harmon appeared in the successful children's film Agent Cody Banks, starring Frankie Muniz and Hilary Duff. In 2004, she added Bob the Butler, with Tom Green and Brooke Shields, to her resume.

Harmon is not only a Dallas Cowboys fan, but she is also a nature lover. Angie has always wanted to create a ranch in West Texas for underprivileged children to give them an outdoor experience. Angie and Jason welcomed their first child, Finley Faith Sehorn, into the world on October 14, 2003.
