FactShe is a natural blond like her mother, but she dyes her hair black on occasions because she doesn't want people to recognize her as merely the daughter of Cheryl Ladd. She wants to get acting jobs on her own merit and talent. She appears in many of her films with dark hair, such as The Specials (2000) and Never Been Kissed (1999). However, she seems to have decided to stick with her blond hair in recent films like Cabin Fever (2002).


The daughter of “Charlie’s Angels” star Cheryl Ladd shares her mother’s stunning looks and acting talent, but has worked extremely hard to make it own her own, trying to appear from out of the shadow of her very famous family.

Early life

Jordan Elizabeth Ladd was born 14 January 1975 in Hollywood, California, USA, making her a third-generation actress in the Ladd family. Her mom Cheryl Ladd (nee Soppelmoor) was born on 12 July 1951, to an ordinary family completely unfamiliar with the life of fame Cheryl would create for herself and marry into, best known for being cast in the ABC (American Broadcasting Company) television series ‘Charlies Angels’ as Kris Monroe.

Jordan’s dad on the other hand was born into a family very familiar with fame. Actor David Ladd was the son of actress and talent agent Sue Carole, and actor Alan Ladd. Even her stepsister, Lindsay Russell aspired to be an actress, so it was hardly a surprise that Jordan followed in her famous family’s footsteps.

Early education

In 1993 Ladd finished high school and then attended Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. Despite her family’s fame, Jordan managed to have a relatively normal life, commenting ‘When I was in high school, I used to go to the clubs, and of course that’s exciting. You want to drink before you can and get into places you can’t’ but said once she started her acting career she didn’t want to get involved in Hollywood’s nightlife.


Jordan’s first appeared on camera when two years old, was cast in a few television commercials, the first being for a polaroid camera. In school she took on a few acting jobs with her mom in “The Girl Who Came Between Them” in 1990, and “Broken Promises: Taking Emily Back” in 1993, but didn’t take up acting professionally until after she finished high school.Her first acting job as an adult was in 1994 when she made a guest appearance in “Saved by the Bell: The New Class” an NBC (National Broadcasting Company) series. It wasn’t until she appeared with Alyssa Milano in “Embrace of the Vampire” that she began getting noticed. Over the next six years, Ladd appeared in a few independent movies such as “Inside Out”, “Taking the Plunge”, and “Stand-ins”.

Her first notable role was in 1999 when she starred opposite Drew Barrymore in “Never Been Kissed” as the popular girl in high school who bullies an insecure student who attended her school. The movie was a huge success making roughly $84.5 million, and Ladd globally known.

In 2000 Ladd was seen in a variety of movies, playing very different characters. First, she appeared in ‘The Special’ a superhero comedy movie playing a neurotic superhero Nightbird. Later that year Ladd played a movie star competing for an Academy Award in “Best Actress”, as well as appearing in the critically acclaimed film “Boys Life 3”. In the horror film “Cabin Fever” she was the victim of a virus that ate her flesh – the movie started filming very soon after 9/11, when talking about her experience she said ‘We shut down, we got up and running, and then we shut own again.

We just hoped to finish the move and hoped people would really understand and appreciate it.’ The movie was made on a budget of $1.5 million, but made $30.5 million and a huge profit margin at the box office.

This role was the start of Jordan appearing in a string of horror films. In 2002 she was a distressed, upset woman in “Darkened Room” a Japanese type horror movie, in 2004 she played the suspect of a killing spree while holidaying on an island in “Club Dread”, andlater that year a nurse in a mental institution in “Madhouse”.

In 2005 she had a quick break from horror movies, when Ladd appeared in the comedy “Waiting…” opposite big Hollywood names such as Justin Long, Ryan Reynolds and Anna Faris.

Quentin Tarantino’s movie “Death Proof” had her cast alongside her mother as a Texas party girl and murder victim. She also added a few more famous colleagues, working alongside Tracie Thoms, Zoë Bell, Rosario Dawson and Kurt Russel.

Her next horror film – “Grace” – was filmed in 2009 when she played a woman whose unborn baby dies when she is in a car accident, and despite doctor’s recommendation carries the baby to term.

In 2010, after five years Ladd was cast in the comedy “First Dates”, a movie that follows the dating lives of a few single people, but quickly went back to horror with “Murder on the 13th Floor”, in which she plays a wife who exacts revenge upon finding out that her husband is cheating on her with their live-in baby-sitter.

2015 was the year Ladd appeared in an episode of “Scary Endings”, a YouTube horror series directed by John Fitzpatrick. The next year Ladd and Fitzpatrick worked together again on ‘Brentwood Strangler’, in which she plays a sad, lonely women set-up on a date with a serial killer. 2017 to date is the last time Ladd appeared on screen, in “Stage Fright” as an opera singer, and in “Blue Line” playing a woman who escapes her abusive husband, and goes on a revenge mission with her best friend.

Meeting famous spouse

Jordan met Conor O’Neill in 1997 and they dated for four years before marrying in 2001, but the marriage only lasted four years – the couple divorced in 2005.

Five years later he was nominated for another award for “Blood Brothers” by the Tony Awards for Best Actor in a Musical.

He appeared in a five-part TV drama, “Criminal Justice” in 2008, playing solicitor Ralph Stone, and then played Joe Meek in both the 2008 film and 2005 play “Telstar: The Joe Meek Story”.

His next role was in 2011 at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester, playing Eddie Carbone a dock worker in Arthur Millers “A View from the Bridge”, which won him the award for Best Actor from the Manchester Theatre Awards. Between 2013-2019 he played in various series, such as “The Bible”, “Happy Valley”, “Chernobyl”, and “Ordinary Lies.”

Other relationships

Although Jordan’s childhood and family life are widely publicized, she has done a very good job of keeping her love life private, and away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi. Hollywood being Hollywood she has been romantically linked to a string of actors, but with the exception of her marriage she has not been in any other confirmed relationships.

Net worth

Since the start of her career Jordan has appeared in well over 50 films and television series which have all added up to create her net worth. Sources say the she is worth over $1 million which is not bad considering it will only increase over the next few years as her career hopefully continues.

Physical Characteristics

Jordan’s uncanny resemblance to her mother is largely due to her blue eyes and blonde hair, but has been known to dye her hair dark, because although she loves her mother, she wants to distance herself as an actress so that she is seen independently.

Ladd is 5ft (1.52m) tall, weighs about 115lbs (52kgs) and her vital statistics are 34-26-36.
