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.
