Jennifer Lyons is an American actress and model. She is known best for appearing in films such as "Can't Hardly Wait" and "Dorm Daze 2," as well as TV series such as "That '70s Show" and "Workaholics."
Jennifer Lyons was born in Pasadena, California on August 6, 1977. From the moment she came into this world, she was surrounded by entertainers. While it may be difficult to consider her mother's job as a school principal to be a job in the entertainment industry, it's hard to deny that her father being a Flamenco guitarist and her grandparents comprising an old Vaudeville team don't fit firmly into the category. Did we mention that her uncle, James Best, played Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane on the TV series "The Dukes of Hazzard," because he certainly became one of Jennifer's biggest influences growing up.
A dancer from a young age, Jennifer studied ballet for 17 years, which played a large part in joining the Pasadena Civic Ballet Company, which even lead to her performing in other countries such as England and China. Her love of dancing for an audience soon grew into a strong interest in musical theatre as well. By high school, she was heavily involved in the performing arts, and interest that extended to college, too.
Jennifer has made a great living playing small roles on television series ever since her debut as Tutor #2 on "Beverly Hills, 90210" in 1995. Of course, since then, the roles have only gotten bigger, even extending to roles in films such as "Can't Hardly Wait" and "The Amazing Spider-Man." While she has yet to play the lead in any major motion pictures, her long career as a side character has her well on her way.
When Jennifer isn't acting, she is modeling. Under the name Jen Lyons, she's been one of Los Angeles–based lingerie company Trashy Lingerie's most successful models for years.
