Jennifer Morrison is an American Actress, Model and a Producer. She was born as Jennifer Marie Morrison on 12 April 1979. She is none other than that the brilliant and empathetic immunologist in Fox’s hit show “House MD”. Jennifer is the talented daughter of a couple who used to teach music at Prospect High School. Having come from a family of art oriented people, it was probably easy for her to make career choices in theatre and music. Jennifer, who has spent her childhood mostly in Arlington Heights, attended Loyola University Chicago where she earned her Theatre major and also studied English. The very obvious thing for her to do next was to dive into the acting industry. She got training at Steppenwolf Theatre Company before exploring her talent on the big screen.

Jennifer, 37 is multi-talented who did not restrict herself to just acting but also tried her hands in modeling. She lent her face to print media advertisements and also shined on the cover of “Sports Illustrated” with ‘ Michael Jordan’. She began her acting during her teens by playing small but noticeable roles in movies. She first appeared as a daughter to ‘ Richard Gere’, an established name and ‘ Sharon Stone’, already a popular actor, in the movie “Intersection”. Then, she made appearances in many movies after that like “A Stir of Echoes” alongside ‘ Kevin Bacon’. Jennifer experimented with different genres in the cinema and embraced horror/thriller for some time in her career. She is seen haunting Kevin Bacon in this horror flick Stir of Echoes. It was the year 2000, where her face was certainly well registered among the audience with the movie Urban Legends: Final Cut. This thriller sequel gave Jennifer enough screen space for her to explore her acting skills.

Later, Jennifer turned to television and involved herself in it. She thought to utilize her talent in television shows like Dawson’s Creek (2001) where she plays girlfriend to ‘Joshua Jackson’. We see the other side of Jennifer in 2003 teenage comedy Grind, where she dons all possible attributes of a perfect tantrum throwing teenage girl. Her friendship with ‘Ashlee Simpson’ in Hollywood took her as a consistent guest in Simpson’s reality show. Adding to her list of comedy films was Surviving Christmas, which went to theatre in 2004 with ‘ Ben Affleck’ alongside. And Jennifer proves her action skills in the infamous Mr. and Mrs. Smith in 2005.

Jennifer begot a major career-elevating role of Dr. Allison Cameron in House MD which got her immense popularity and which was credited for her acting maneuvers. Cameron is a role of an immunologist who works with Gregory House bring everything that House aka Hugh Grant is incapable of in the role. She plays the sensitive, rational and caring doctor on the show, as opposed to her boss House. It was also this show which was responsible for getting many prestigious award nominations and many accolades. Her role as Cameron will forever be remembered. It was during this show, that Jennifer met ‘Jesse Spencer’ who plays doctor in the same show and later both got engaged in December 23rd, 2006. She confessed that Jesse proposed to her at the Eiffel Tower, the perfect spot for proposals. But this love affair did not last long, and the couple split up the following year.

Jennifer’s stints at the movies continued and she was producing an independent feature film Flourish in which she also acted. The role of a troubled woman in a mental asylum was played by her. She was next seen in the opening scene of Star Trek movie directed by none other than ' J J Abrams', as a mother to James. T. Kirk in 2009. The very next year we saw Jennifer playing ‘Ted Mosby’ love interest in the sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” on CBS. In this popular show, Jennifer has been seen in 13 episodes, and that is the longest by any female role being given in the show.

In the Broadway musical The Miracle Worker, Jennifer bagged the role of Helen Keller’s mother aka Kate Keller. By this, she always kept her love for theatre alive. Jennifer got a lead role in the reality and fantasy convoluting show called Once Upon A Time in 2011. She gained immense popularity in such little time and became an instant favorite among the kids for playing the lost daughter of Prince Charming and Snow White. Jennifer, who plays Emma Sawn in the mystical show is proud of her character and always adores the role. Jennifer personally feels that Emma character is a strong one and she shows great strength in her. ‘ Sebastian Stan’, who was Jennifer’s co-star in the show, was also seen with her off the show. Jennifer and Sebastian were believed to be dating during the show but in 2012 they went their separate ways. Her work in the show, however, caught people’s attention, and the show went on getting renewed for the next season. The dimple-charmed actor talks about filming a mystery and superpower show and explains to us how it involves a lot of hard work to perform stunts and to make it all look real. She admits that the role of Emma is inspiring and zealous to her, not alone in the show but also in real life. She says she is drawn toward Emma and says that Emma brings some sense of authenticity to the show.

Interestingly, Jennifer was a Clarinet player and a choir singer and also a cheerleader in her school days. Her parents being music instructors helped Jennifer   to turn towards music in her life. She has music videos like What I Want and Shut Up to her credit. She was also responsible for bringing the musical drama Glee to come to life. It was Jennifer’s efforts to bring to life; the music shows the concept of Glee, which was such huge success. It looks like her talents never ending, nor her career in Hollywood.

Jennifer, who personally considers Alice in Wonderland and Cinderella as her favorite fairy tales, is often asked about her fitness and her diet. Jennifer is often interviewed asking her everyday diet, and she calmly owes it to exercising six days a week and avoiding junk food. At present (2016), she had her own Production Company and named it as “Apartment 3C Productions”. The brilliant actor will now begin her maiden venture feature film Sun Dogs, which is yet to go down the floor for the shoot.

Jennifer Landon

Jennifer Landon is born to famous actor late ‘Michael Landon’ and his wife, Cindy Clerico. Cindy is the third wife of Michael and had two children with him. Jennifer, who shares the first name with a long list of actresses in Hollywood, was practically a Hollywood child. Having her father in the industry, Jennifer got acquainted with the acting in movies and soap operas since her childhood. She was only five when she first made her debut on-screen in her father’s television series, “Highway to Heaven”. Jennifer, who saw the light in the world on 29 August 1983 in Malibu California, lost her father Michael Landon when she was barely 7, and her brother Sean, just 4. Jennifer had a total of 7 half-siblings from father Michael’s previous marriages. Acting in the movies and television seemed like the obvious choice for Jennifer having graduated from New York University. The acting was in her blood, and it purged out during her college days itself as she was taking part in several theatre productions. Her innings in the film industry started in 2004 in an independent movie called “L.A.D.J.” The very next year she entered into soap operas by playing the role of Gwen Norbeck Munson in “As the World Turns”. This theatre trained actor managed to impress the producers in this show that they extended her role and booked her for next three years for the same show. She also featured as Cleo Babitt in the same show, where she has a similar appearance as that of Gwen Munson. However, this role was cut short sooner in the show. Jennifer has a career highlight of a total of three movie credits so far which includes “Another Bullet Dodged” (2011), and “I Spit on your Grave: Vengeance is Mine”, which released in 2015. The 32-year-old actor has proved her acting skills over and over in the television series and has also bagged Day Time Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actress for a Drama Series three times for her role in As the World Turns. Exploring her talent in different genres, Jennifer also tried her hand at music. Her singing appears in her show As the World Turns where she sings plenty of songs. In 2006, she recorded two songs Slide, and I Saw Love released by her. Although her singing was appreciated, her songs did not match up to the hype and expectations. Jennifer took some time off when her three-year contract was over and so was the show (As the World Turns). She is believed to have taken time off to spend with her family. She is later seen in the hit Television Drama House in 2011, even though not in a prominent role. She made news when she got roped into play Heather Stevens in the popular show “The Young and The Restless” in 2012. Her career took a new phase because of this big opportunity. But it did not last for long, soon after a year, the role of Heather was discontinued. But this did not mean the end of this talented three times Emmy-winning star. In 2016, she is expected to be seen in Banshee, apparently playing the wife of a serial killer.  She will always be reckoned along with her father’s name, and she often shares her fond memories with Michael. Another Version Of This Bio: Jennifer Landon, the daughter of actor, Michael Landon and Cindy Clerico, is an American actress, popularly recognized for her character in “As the World Turns” as “Gwen Norbeck Munson. Her half-brothers in the family tree are Christopher B. Landon and director, Michael Landon Jr. Jennifer Landon did her schooling from Brentwood School, and then, she shifted to the great New York City and joined New York University; there she partook in numerous theater makings.

She worked with her father another time in the pilot of another one of his television series, “Us”, where she got to depict the character of a woman named, “Jennifer Kramer”. This was before the year 1991 before Michael Landon died. Before her performance in “As the World Turns”, Jennifer performed in an independent movie, “L.A. DJ”. In the year 2005, she finally got the role of Gwen Norbeck Munson (As the World Turns), a role that wasn’t supposed to be anything major initially, until the director liked her performance so much that he extended her contract to that of three years for this particular show. For this role of hers, she has won “Daytime Emmy Award” for “Outstanding Younger Actress in a Drama Series”, consecutively for three years (2006-2008). “As The World Turns” has also displayed her amazing talent as an up-and-coming recording artist, given that her role has demanded her to sing numerous times on the show.
