Biography

Laurie Holden was born Heather Laurie Holden in Los Angeles, California, to actors Glen Corbett and Adrienne Ellis. When she was five, her parents divorced, and her mother married director Michael Anderson. Laurie then split her time between L.A. and Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Holden traveled the world with her family on various locations growing up, and got her first break as Rock Hudsons daughter in Ray Bradburys The Martian Chronicles (1980). The young actress who was cast to play Hudsons daughter suddenly fell through and, at the age of nine, Laurie was thrown in to take over. Not bad for her first acting job. As a teenager, she won the Look of the Year modeling pageant in Toronto. An avid academic, Holden initially looked at acting as a hobby and had plans to pursue a career in investment banking. She attended McGill University, where she studied economics, but made an unexpected switch to theater at the end of her freshman year. She transferred to UCLA and completed her BA in theater arts in 1993.
