Born as Laurene Landon Coughlin in Toronto, Canada, Landon's family moved to the United States when she was four. The 5'10" Landon’s image and movements were rotoscoped for Spider-Woman the animated television series, based on the Marvel Comics character Spider-Woman.The series was produced by DePatie–Freleng Enterprises and Marvel Comics Animation (both owned by Marvel Entertainment), and aired on September 22, 1979, to January 5, 1980, one season of sixteen episodes, on the ABC-TV network. After numerous boring modeling jobs, Laurene tested the waters for an acting career. She starred as "Molly", one of two female wrestlers, who are managed by 'Peter Falk', in Robert Aldrich's uproariously raucous comedy, ...All the Marbles. The fiercely athletic and aggressive Landon also performed all of her own stunts in the film. 2,000 women auditioned for the much-coveted role. Landon was very funny as a daffy stewardess in Airplane II: The Sequel and was excellent as Mike Hammer's loyal secretary "Velda" in I, the Jury and garnered rave reviews for her performance from THE CHICAGO SUN TIMES. Laurene was especially strong and impressive in two delightful action/adventure features for director Matt Cimber: she's the rugged warrior woman in Hundra (doing nearly all 38 stunts except one) and a gutsy half-Native American spitfire in Yellow Hair and the Fortress of Gold. Landon was once again, on the money, effective and engaging as courageous policewoman "Teresa Mallory" in the terrific Maniac Cop and its superior 1990 sequel, Maniac Cop 2. After a regrettably lengthy absence from acting, Laurene made a return to screen with a sizable co-starring part in the Masters of Horror episode, Pick Me Up. She then went on to be cast in the Zoe Cassavetes directed movie DAY OUT OF DAYS. Soon thereafter, Landon co-starred in SKY – opposite Diane Kruger, receiving rave reviews from THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER. Most recently, Laurene has had starring roles in the Mafia thriller, SYNDICATE SMASHER, NIGHT TERRORS, TERROR TALES and a featured role in NATION’S FIRE opposite Bruce Dern. Her horror movie AGRAMON’S GATE has won first place at innumerable film festivals. She is currently filming CLOWN MOTEL2.
