Sheryl Lee

Biography: Born in in Germany and raised in Colorado, this blond beauty began acting in school plays while attending Fairview High School. At the end of her studies, Sheryl attended many dramatic arts schools such as the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Pasadena, California, summer programs at the North Carolina School of the Arts and the National Conservatory Theater in Denver.

Afterwards, Lee pursued stage work in Seattle, where she met director David Lynch, who cast her as Laura Palmer, one of the most popular character in television history, in the cult TV series Twin Peaks (1990). She later worked with Lynch again in Wild at Heart (1990) and resurrected Laura Palmer in Lynch's Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me (1992). Since then, Lee has made a decent but discrete career in film and television, starring in John Carpenter's Vampires and television show L.A. Doctors.

In 2005, Sheryl made a major comeback on television as she portrayed the role of Peyton Sawyer's estranged and
cancer-stricken mother on One Tree Hill. After her stint with the CW drama, she again played a dying mother on ABC's Dirty Sexy Money. Expand
