Born: July 11, 1956 Cause of Death:
Birth Place: Meridian, Mississippi, USA Profession: Cast ... actress model advertising art director


Dark-haired and fair-complected with fine features and expressive brown eyes, actress Sela Ward began her career as a model before beginning work in features and television and eventually hitting the big time with memorably evocative regular roles on the series "Sisters" (NBC) and "Once and Again" (ABC). This Southern belle moved to New York City following her graduation from the University of Alabama, expecting to pursue work in advertising. She instead began modeling and went on to appear in dozens of national television commercials. Ward soon moved to Los Angeles, where she studied acting and launched a career in that capacity. In 1983 the actress made her feature debut in Blake Edwards' remake "The Man Who Loved Woman" and bowed on the small screen that same year with a regular role as privileged ice princess Hilary Adams on the CBS primetime soap "Emerald Point, N.A.S." (1983-84). Ward could next be seen as a controlled businesswoman dating Tom Hanks in Garry Marshall's comedy-drama "Nothing in Common" (1986), before making her feature co-starring debut in the actioner "Steele Justice" (1987).
