Mini Bio (1)

Cynthia Gibb was born in Bennington, Vermont, USA on December 14, 1963 to a ballet dancer and teacher. Gibb's early dance training lent grace to her fresh-faced beauty, qualities which won her a modeling contract with New York's Eileen Ford Agency at age 14. Within a year she was on the cover of "Vogue" and "Young Miss." Spotted in a magazine by Woody Allen, Gibb was cast in a minor role as an autograph seeker in the filmmaker's Stardust Memories (1980) and promptly switched to an acting career. Cynthia Gibb graduated high school with honors, but with a sister at Yale and no financial aid available to her, she decided on an acting career. After appearing off-Broadway in "Nathaniel," she landed the recurring part of scatterbrained Suzi Wyatt Carter of daytime television's Search for Tomorrow (1951) right after high school graduation in 1981 at the age of 19. She joined the cast of Fame (1982) and spent three seasons as drama major Holly Laird on the popular series. Between the show's first and second seasons, she starred as a hockey coach's daughter, with whom Rob Lowe fell in love, in Youngblood (1986). Between the second and third seasons, she starred in the much praised Salvador (1986), as a lay worker (based on the real life Jean Donovan) who, along with four nuns, was murdered by an El Salvador death squad. Just before filming Malone (1987), Gibb finished Modern Girls (1986), in which she played, not surprisingly, a young actress. She appeared in the television movies, "Mary Christmas" (2002) (TV) played Mary Maloney opposite actor John Schneider. Cynthia has also appeared in many movies including "A Crime of Passion" (2003) (TV), "A Family Lost" (2007) (TV), "An Accidental Christmas" (2007) (TV) and "A Nanny For Christmas" (2010) with Emmanuelle Vaugier, 'Dean Cain (I)' and Sarah Thompson. She also starred in "Cinnamon" aka "My Dog's Christmas Miracle" (2011) (V) with Greg Evigan and Ashley Leggat.
