AnnaLynne McCord (born July 16, 1987) is an American actress. Known for playing a range of vixen-type roles,[1] McCord first gained prominence in 2007 as the scheming Eden Lord on the FX television series Nip/Tuck, and as the pampered Loren Wakefield on the MyNetworkTV telenovela American Heiress. In film, she has appeared in the action feature Transporter 2, as well as the thriller Day of the Dead.

In 2008, she was the second actor to be cast in the CW series 90210, portraying antiheroine Naomi Clark. Initially, the part of Clark was conceived as a supporting role. By the end of the first season, however, various media outlets had begun referring to McCord as the series' lead.[2][3]

Apart from acting, she has also contributed to charities in her free time, and has been labeled by the Look to the Stars organization as "one of the strongest young female philanthropists standing up in Hollywood and fighting for the charities she believes in."[4] In 2009, McCord was nominated for a Teen Choice Award, and received the Hollywood Life Young Hollywood Superstar of Tomorrow award.

Career

McCord was born in Atlanta, Georgia. She was home-schooled and graduated from high school at the age of 15, after which she joined the Wilhelmina Modeling Agency and appeared in ads for various brands, including Estee Lauder and also briefly modeled for Seventeen magazine.[5]

McCord appears in the 2005 Italian film Natale a Miami, 2007 horror film remake Day of the Dead. In addition to appearances on Close to Home and The O.C., she played rebellious Loren Wakefield on the MyNetworkTV limited-run serial American Heiress.[6] She was also cast as the star in another MyNetworkTV telenovela, Rules of Deception, but the show never aired, due to a change in the network's programming strategy away from telenovelas. In addition, she has guest-starred in episodes 119 and 120 of Ugly Betty, an episode on the first season of Greek, and an episode on the fourth season of Cold Case.

McCord portrayed Eden Lord, a character in the fifth season of the FX series Nip/Tuck. She reprises her role as a guest star in several season 6 episodes. In 2008, she joined the debuting series 90210 as Naomi Clark, a part which media outlets have since referred to as the central role.[3][7] In 2009, McCord was the recipient of the Hollywood Life Young Hollywood Superstar of Tomorrow award.[8] She was also nominated for a Teen Choice Award for her portrayal of Naomi.[9] McCord was being considered for the role of Heidi in New Moon, the sequel to the 2008 film Twilight, according to E! Online. However, she did not get the role. According to McCord herself she turned the part down because she was "in need of some R&R."[10] The role went to Noot Seear.[11]

Personal life

During her free time, McCord has contributed to various charities, stating that she is a "strong believer in working with organizations and giving back."[4] She is the Goodwill Ambassador for the Blind Project. McCord is the cover model for the July 2009 issue of Signature magazine, a Los Angeles regional magazine. The cover story highlights her dedication to The Blind Project, "a charity organization that builds factories in third world countries to educate and employ victims of human trafficking." According to the article, she moved her sisters from Atlanta to Los Angeles so they would be able to help her with this cause. The sisters created a clothing line, "The Sisters 3" to donate to the charity.[12]
