Texas native Angie Harmon, known to the Law & Order faithful as Abbie, got her start in the entertainment industry at 15 when she was selected as the winner of a Seventeen magazine contest, appearing on the magazine’s cover in 1988.
Later, the young talent, who was working as a model, was spotted on an airplane by David Hasselhoff and offered a role on Baywatch Nights, where she began earning her acting stripes. After Baywatch and a four-year run on Law & Order, Harmon tried her luck on the big screen, appearing in Agent Cody Banks and Fun With Dick and Jane.
Harmon is married to New York Giants football player Jason Sehorn, who proposed to the actress on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno in 2000. The couple has three daughters, Finley, born in 2003 and Avery, born in 2005, and Emery Hope, born in 2008.
