Birthplace: Watchung, NJ

Religion: Scientology
Race or Ethnicity: White

Occupation: Actor

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Donna on That '70s Show

Laura Prepon played the gorgeous redheaded girl-next-door on That '70s Show. She left high school at 15 to study acting, worked for a few years as a model, and made her professional acting debut in a commercial for MCI. Before That '70s Show, she starred in They Go On, a mid-1990s hybrid soap opera and Levi's commercial that was streamed on-line.

Unlike the wry-witted tomboy Donna Pinciotti, Prepon says she is shy and introverted, and she loves fashion magazines like Allure, Glamour, and Mademoiselle. Raised in a family of mixed Jewish and Catholic heritage, she converted to Scientology when she began dating Chris Masterson, who played the eldest son on Malcolm in the Middle.

Prepon has been in a few low-profile feature films which suggest she may have more than mere sitcom talent. Lightning Bug is an endearing drama about a young man's escape from a dysfunctional family with Prepon as his saintly and sexy girlfriend, and Karla features Prepon in a crazed performance as true-life Canadian killer Karla Homolka.
