Angie Harmon biography
Date of Birth: August 10, 1972
Angie Harmon was born to parents who were models, so it was natural when she followed in their footsteps, beginning her career at the age of two days. Growing up in Dallas, Texas, she continued to model, and when she was 15, she won Seventeen magazine's national cover girl contest. Just after graduating from high school, Harmon was chosen as the winner of the Spectrum Model Search, with the previous year's winner, supermodel Niki Taylor, presenting her with the grand prize of $250,000.
Harmon travelled to the glamor capitals of the world while modelling clothes for designers such as Versace, Karan and Armani, and appearing on the covers of Harper's Bazaar, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, Vogue, Glamour and GQ. In 1995 she moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career as an actress. After enrolling in acting classes, she landed her first regular role on the television series Baywatch Knights, which ran from 1995 to 1997. When the show ended, Harmon immediately landed another regular role on the series C-16: FBI. The same year, she made her feature film debut in Lawn Dogs (1997).
Her biggest break came when she was cast as a regular member of the hit television series Law & Order in 1998. The show, well-known for only keeping cast members for a limited number of years, had been a hit since arriving on the small screen in 1990. Playing the role of Abbie Carmichael, Harmon suddenly found herself a household name and stayed with the show for two years. She moved on to starring roles in TV movies such as Video Voyeur: The Susan Wilson Story (2002) and Sudden Fear (2002). In 2003, she made her return to the big screen playing a CIA agent in the teen caper, Agent Cody Banks.
Harmon met NY giants All-Pro defensive back Jason Sehorn when she attended a Giants football game, and he arranged beforehand, without her knowledge, to propose to her when she appeared as a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 2000. They were married on June 9, 2001, and live in the Los Angeles area with Dakota (their dog) and Madeline (their cat).
A natural beauty, Harmon is one of the faces for Neutrogena products.
