Biography

A former teen model who segued into acting in her early 20s, Ali Larter's fresh look enabled her to play high school students for the first few years of her screen career. After turning heads in "Varsity Blues" (1999), and the blockbuster teen horror films "Final Destination" (2000) and "Final Destination 2" (2003), Larter had a brief flirtation with big screen comedy before establishing her calling card in roles as strong, nurturing women in extraordinary situations. She reached new heights with her ensemble role in the acclaimed sci-fi drama series "Heroes" (NBC, 2006- ), where she initially played a single mother with a split personality. While her first character was written out of the series, Larter was transformed into an aspiring politician with the power to manipulate water. She was an especially popular draw for young audiences, proven by nominations at the Teen Choice Awards. Larter ventured into more adventurous roles with two thrillers, "Resident Evil: Extinction" (2007) and "Obsessed" (2009), which successfully positioned her as a film star for all audiences - one capable of successfully embodying both hero and villain.

Bonus Trivia

.

"Teen movies have been great for me, but I've decided to chill out a little and wait for something else to come along. I've just turned 24 and would like to do something closer to home and to express things that fit more naturally with my life." – Larter quoted in USA Today, March 14, 2000

.

"I'm a pain in the ass. I'm emotional. I'm all over the place. I'm maybe a little bit of a drama queen." – Larter quoted in GQ magazine, February 2003

.

"I was in a lot of teen genre movies as the blonde character, and I wanted to be this dark, intellectual, brooding character instead. But that wasn't me. Once you stop trying to be someone else, once you give up – and for me it was giving up – you can have anything you want. They think I'm a dumb blonde? C'est la vie." – Larter quoted in Playboy magazine, October 2007
