Last week we took you through the evolution of Heidi Montag to whet your appetite for the "The Hills" final season premiere, and this week, we're looking back through the years of another original cast member, Audrina Patridge. Audrina had originally said she would be appearing for the last time on "The Hills" back in its fifth season so she could focus on her own reality show, but surprised us all by coming back for the sixth and final season. But really, who could resist staying on MTV's biggest hit since "The Real World" all the way through until the end?
Audrina was born on May 9, 1985 (happy early 25th birthday!!) and was raised in Yorba Linda, Calif. — about 30 miles north of Laguna Beach and 30 miles east of Los Angeles. So it seemed like it was fated that Audrina would end up meeting Lauren Conrad after she moved to L.A. for a job at Quixote Studios as a receptionist. Audrina met the girl then known as "LC" and her then-BFF Heidi when they moved into her building in 2006, thus putting first season of "The Hills."
The show proved profitable for Audrina as she worked at Epic Records from the second to fifth season of "The Hills" and it kick-started her film career. She landed a small role in the 2009 direct-to-DVD film "Into The Blue 2: The Reef," and also was one of the main characters in the remake of "Sorority Row" for which she received the ShoWest award of Female Star of Tomorrow. Audrina also had the honor of being spoofed on Funny or Die by Mila Kunis, which is an honor any young starlet should wish to have.
As aforementioned, Audrina had originally said she would be leaving "The Hills" in its fifth season to pursue her own MTV reality series called "The Audrina Show," but pushed its debut back until mid-2010 to participate on the final season of "The Hills." That means more drama, more intrigue and more fights over Justin Bobby.
As for life after "The Hills," Audrina told MTV News, "I plan on taking a vacation. I really want to go to Europe and just travel and hang out with my friends and family down in Orange County."
She added about future film roles, "I would love to do a time piece, like, medieval. I love 'The Tudors' and I love 'Troy' and those types of movies. So, that's my dream."
"The Hills: Final Season" airs tonight at 10 p.m. ET/PT followed by "The City" at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
