Molly Ringwald is an American actress, singer and dancer who became popular with teenage audiences in the 1980s as a result of her starring roles in the John Hughes movies Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink.

She is also known for her starring role as Anne Juergens on the television drama series The Secret Life of the American Teenager, from 2008-2013.

Molly began her film career at age 13 with a Golden Globe-nominated performance in Paul Mazursky's The Tempest.

In the '80s, she starred in such beloved coming-of-age movies as Sixteen Candles and Pretty in Pink, then moved to Paris in 1992 and acted in such films as Seven Sundays and King Lear, a screen adaptation directed by French film legend Jean-Luc Godard.

Molly's film credits include the Australian film Cut, as well as In the Weeds and Cowboy Up.

On TV, you might have seen her in the series Townies, Stephen King's The Stand, or in the Emmy-nominated Something to Live for: The Alison Gertz Story.

But Molly's also done a ton of theatre. She starred as Sally Bowles in Cabaret on Broadway, in a London stage production of When Harry Met Sally, and in the Tony-nominated Enchanted April.

She also appeared off-Broadway in Tick Tick Boom, in an off-Broadway production of Modern Orthodox, and in a national tour of Sweet Charity.
