Biography

This striking, serious-looking actress, after a brief stage career, became one of the leading ladies of problem-of-the-week TV-movies. Zimbalist played a kidnap victim in "Yesterday's Child"; a grieving family member in "In the Matter of Karen Ann Quinlan"; and a lovelorn teenager in "Forever". She is probably best known for her role as stylish sleuth Laura Holt on the long-running detective series, "Remington Steele" (NBC, 1982-87), opposite Pierce Brosnan. Zimbalist has since given strong, sympathetic performances portraying independent working women in the TV movie "The Story Lady" and in the off-Broadway surrogate-mother drama, "The Baby Dance" (both 1991).
