Jana Marie Hupp
A dark-haired actress with an attractive screen presence that combined alluring strength with charming vulnerability, Jana Marie Hupp paid her dues with guest appearances in numerous TV series and small supporting turns in several features before landing a regular role on the hit NBC comedy-drama series "Ed" in 2000. A Washington native, Hupp appeared in Seattle theater productions before landing her first film role, a one-line part in the coming-of-age drama "Vision Quest" (1985). This led to a move to Los Angeles, where the actress took guest roles on episodes of the CBS series "Scarecrow and Mrs. King" and "My Sister Sam" in 1986. A featured part in the "Disney Sunday Movie" presentation "Splash, Too" followed in 1988.
