Bio

Laurie Holden is an American actress best known for her starring role as civil rights attorney Andrea on the television horror series The Walking Dead. The series marked her third collaboration with Director/Executive Producer Frank Darabont, having worked with him previously when he cast her as the female lead opposite Jim Carrey in The Majestic and opposite Thomas Jane and Marcia Gay Harden in Stephen King's The Mist.

She is also known for her recurring roles as Marita Covarrubias on The X-Files, for co-starring with Jim Carrey in the film The Majestic and playing the police officer Cybil Bennett in the Silent Hill movie.

Holden got her first break as Rock Hudson's daughter in Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles, directed by her stepfather, veteran film director Michael Anderson.

Upon graduating from UCLA, Holden was accepted as part of the National Honor Society and received the Natalie Wood Award for Best Actress. She went on to study the classics at The Webber Douglas Academy of Art and honed her craft under the tutelage of Larry Moss at The Larry Moss Acting Studio.

She has worked steadily in original films for HBO and Showtime and co-starred with Vanessa Redgrave in the TNT miniseries Young Catherine. Holden starred as the only female lead opposite Michael Biehn in the remake of the MGM classic The Magnificent Seven for CBS.

Her episodic work on television is vast and includes a comedic turn in the critically acclaimed Due South for which she was nominated for a Canadian Gemini Award.

Her memorable feature film roles include such hits as Fantastic Four (where she played Michael Chiklis' love interest) and the cult hero Cybil Bennet in Christophe Gans' artistic-horror video game adaptation of Silent Hill.

She gained notoriety playing the role of Marita Covarrubias, the U.N. informant to Fox Mulder, on the long running hit The X-Files and for her portrayal of Agent Olivia Murray in FX's critically acclaimed show The Shield.

Named as one of the top 100 Most Creative People in Hollywood in Entertainment Weekly's It List and One of Ten Actors to Watch by Variety, Holden is actively producing film, theatre and television projects in addition to her acting pursuits.
