Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

She was born into a show business family, but actress Jordan Ladd resisted the easy path to a thriving acting career, paving her own way in small-budgeted films before finding her niche in the works of popular genre filmmakers Eli Roth and Quentin Tarantino. As the sadistic pleasures of Roth's "Cabin Fever" (2003) and "Hostel: Part II" (2007) and Tarantino's "Grindhouse" (2007) unfolded, Ladd had clearly taken up residence in projects far from the relatively sedate offerings from her famous clan - mother, Cheryl Ladd of "Charlie's Angels" fame and grandfather, big screen tough guy, Alan Ladd.

Notes

"Playing sexy is not my shtick. I'm no Bond girl. But I agreed to it because it was comedy. Let's face it. At the end of the day, tits are pretty funny." - Ladd on doing a topless scene in "Broken Lizard's Club Dread" Premiere, October 2003

"When I'm continually identified with a TV show my mother did 20 years ago, it's a tough pill to swallow. it has nothing to do with anything I've done. I'm looking for whatever job it will take to make people forget I'm my mother's daughter. It's hard because I love talking about her, but I resent that my choices are identified with her."---Jordan Ladd on her mother actress Cheryl Ladd, fomer Angel Biography Spring 2004
