Interview with iconic actress and fashion mogul Lauren Holly
Lauren Holly is one of the few actresses who can claim legitimate success on both the small and large screen. With a starring role on Picket Fences, Lauren was already a household name by the time she took on her breakout role as Linda Lee in Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, while her role in 1994’s Dumb and Dumber elevated her to star status in Hollywood.
Lauren has found success by playing smaller roles in larger budget films like Any Given Sunday and What Women Want, and taking on starring roles in television miniseries like The Women of Camelot.
Though 1994’s highly successful Dumb and Dumber and the start of her relationship with Carrey represent a major turning point in her career, Lauren had long been an established actress.
Lauren currently stars as Dr. Betty Rogers in ABC’s hit crime drama series, Motive. Motive became a standout amongst the other crime dramas on television because instead of focusing on who committed the crime, the series focuses on why the criminal committed the crime. Lauren brings a quirky sense of humor and warmth that makes her character a standout among the terrific cast!
