Biography

An actress specializing in portrayals of pampered young socialites and alluring teases, Atlanta native AnnaLynne McCord parlayed her on-camera presence and her countenance into a career as a veritable television mainstay during the mid- to late 2000s. McCord began as a series guest star with a number of bit roles on programs including The O.C., Ugly Betty, and CSI: Miami before landing a regular part as conniving sociopath Eden Lord on the irreverent and satirical primetime medical drama Nip/Tuck. McCord signed for her next major recurring role as the physically loose and freewheeling Loren on the quickly canceled MyNetwork serial American Heiress, then accepted the part of bratty Southern California socialite Naomi Clark on 90210, the spinoff of the Fox network's iconic Beverly Hills 90210. She was in the 2009 cheerleading comedy Fired Up! In 2010 she starred in the drama Gun. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
