Biography

A migrant to Hollywood from Little Rock, Arkansas, J y Lauren Adams has often played sexy teenagers since her TV debut as Mona, the girl-next-door with a 90s twist in the 1991 Fox series "Top of the Heap". The sexy blonde actress with the little girl voice then reprised the role, lusting after Matt LeBlanc, in the short-lived 1992 Fox spin-off "Vinnie and Bobby". Other TV roles have included a small role in the 1992 "CBS Schoolbreak Special" about literacy, "Words Up!", and guest appearances on "Married With Children" in 1991 and 1992, once as a cornpone cousin of the Bundys, in which Adams employed an Arkansas drawl. But she is perhaps better recalled for "making a man" of David Faustino's Bud Bundy. During the 1996-97 season, Adams had a recurring role on the ABC series "Second Noah" as Darby, the singer girlfriend of Rick (James Marsden).
