Biography

This tall (5'11"), blonde, blue-eyed former Ford model gave up the runways of international high fashion to pursue an acting career on the small screen. Shortly after she moved to L.A. to study acting in 1988, Needham landed a guest spot on the crime drama "Jake and the Fat Man". She found regular TV work joining the cast of the family drama "Life Goes On" (ABC, 1990-93) during its second season. Needham succeeded Monique Lanier in the role of Paige Thatcher, the older half-sister of Kellie Martin's character, a troubled college drop-out looking for direction. She subsequently appeared in several TV-movies on broadcast and cable including a starring role in "Bonnie & Clyde: The True Story" (Fox, 1992) and a substantial role in "Lush Life" (Showtime, 1994) starring Jeff Goldblum and Forest Whitaker.
