Her parents are Cheryl Ladd and David Ladd. She is the granddaughter of Alan Ladd, the great actor.
Jordan was, of course, born in Hollywood. From the time she was a child she loved to entertain her friends and family. Immediately after graduating from high school, she pursued acting professionally and made her debut in the independent film Embrace of the Vampire opposite Alyssa Milano. Jordan plays a bitch and she's very sexy. In Jordan's spare time, she enjoys playing with her Jack Russell terrier, Earl, along with yoga, cooking and gardening.
A natural blonde who often dies her hair black for roles. Very petite. But also very, um, womanly. Hmmmm?
In Gregg Araki's The Doom Generation, Jordan Ladd was going to play the role of Amy Blue but her mother, Cheryl Ladd, vetoed her playing the role at the last minute. After the names of people thanked by the film's producers scroll, a message saying "No thanks to Cheryl Ladd" appears. This film then became Rose McGowan's debut. Rose was partially nude and simulated sex in quite a few scenes. Perhaps this is what Jordan's mom was opposed to. Jordan did appear briefly in Araki's next film, Nowhere.
It was in Nowhere (1997) where I first noticed Jordan Ladd. I thought she was great, but underused, and I thought she was extremely well dressed in the film. She looked great.
Then I really liked her in Never Been Kissed (1999), which I liked, and thought had a great cast. Jordan had her best part yet as popular girl Gibby Zerefski, opposite Marley Shelton and Jessica Alba as Kristin and.Kirsten.
