(Anna Cogez) achieved enormous success playing Kris Munroe in
the hit 70s series "Charlie's Angels" and has gone on
to star in more than 35 telefeatures and feature films. Most recently,

A native of Hurron, South Dakota, Ladd began acting, singing and
dancing at an early age. She sang with a local group that eventually
landed in Los Angeles; the band broke up but Ladd remained in
LA. Her first break came as the singing voice of Melody on the
popular animated series "Josie and the Pussycats." She
also starred (alongside Steve Martin and Teri Garr) in "The
Ken Berry WOW Show" before being cast as Kris Munroe.
While still on "Charlie's Angels," Ladd began to star
in other projects, beginning with "When She Was Bad"
(a hard-hitting telefeature dealing with child abuse-Ladd developed
the project and eventually became an ambassador for Childhelp
USA, the largest national non-profit organization combating child
abuse). Her additional television credits include starring roles
in the miniseries "Grace Kelly," "Jekyll and Hyde,"
"A Death in California," "Bluegrass," "Crossings,"
"Changes," "Deadly Care," "Tangled Web,"
"Perfect Little Angels" and "Every Mother's Worst
Fear," in which she starred opposite her daughter, Jordan
Ladd. Her additional feature film credits include "Poison
Ivy," "Millennium" and "Purple Hearts."
Ladd's humanitarian efforts have been recognized by Childhelp
USA, who awarded her their "Woman of the World" Award
in 1987, and by the Washington, D.C. Touchdown Club, who awarded
her (the first female to be so honored) with the prestigious "Hubert
H. Humphrey Humanitarian Award."
