Laurene Landon (born March 17, 1957 as Laurene Landon Coughlin) is an American film and television actress. Laurene first began appearing in movies in the late 1970s. She is best known for playing the role of Molly in ...All the Marbles. She is half Irish and half Polish and describes herself as being 'Bi-Polish'. Landon was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and moved to California with her parents at the age of four. As a young woman she entered California State University and began training in their police academy program, but decided that law enforcement was not for her when she came to the realization that she may someday have to use a gun. So she decided to try her hand at acting and began her career as an extra in films. Landon began acting in a bit part in 1979's Bitter Heritage, also released as Naked in My Grave. She was cast as a featured skater in Roller Boogie in that same year.
