Scream queen Jordan Ladd, the 44-year-old actress best known for “Cabin Fever” and “Death Proof,” looks just like her famous mother Cheryl Ladd, one of Charlie’s Angels in the late-70s TV show.


Apart from “Charlie’s Angels,” Cheryl’s most notable roles were Dawn 'Holli' Holliday on the series “One West Waikiki,” Jillian Deline on “Las Vegas,” and Linell Shapiro on “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.”


Cheryl Ladd’s romantic life

In 1973, the actress married fellow actor David Ladd, who appeared on “The Sixth Sense” and “Kojak” in the 70s. They have one daughter together, Jordan Ladd, born on January 14, 1975.

Even though Cheryl and David parted ways in 1980, she chose to keep his last name, even after marrying music producer Brian Russell in 1981.


Jordan Ladd’s career

As per Jordan’s career, it started when she was just two years old in TV commercials. While she was still in school, she would work next to her mother in TV films like 1990 “The Girl Who Came Between Them” and 1993 “Broken Promises: Taking Emily Back.”

Those were not the only projects that the mother-and-daughter duo worked together, though. In 1998, Cheryl played Connie Hoagland and Jordan portrayed Martha, her daughter, on “Every Mother’s Worst Fear.”


Cheryl and Jordan working together

Most recently, in 2018, both actresses appeared together on the made-for-TV movie “The Christmas Contract.”

About her time working next to Jordan in the film, Cheryl said that it was the longest time they had spent together ever since she left home. The 68-year-old actress added that they are great friends who have “adult-women conversations.”


“We stayed in this beautiful hotel in Louisiana right next door to each other. We had slumber parties! She always says, ‘Mom, remember when you…’ and it makes me laugh every time,” Cheryl told Closer Weekly.

During an interview that Jordan had with Mike Gencarelli, she shared her thoughts on growing up in the business.


Jordan’s thoughts on following her mother’s footsteps

“It is a funny thing when you grow in a showbiz family. You end up kind of signing for your supper,” Jordan said. “I never had the aspiration to be a song and dance gal on Broadway or anything. I just genuinely love movies. It is what I know and what I love.”

Apart from that, she said that, initially, the horror genre was not her thing. “Cabin Fever” was the first movie of that kind that she worked on. Through it, she learned what those kinds of films really were.


Jordan also described her experience on working with Quentin Tarantino on the 2007 horror movie “Grindhouse” as “extraordinary.”

“[Quentin] really wants you to become the role that you’re playing,” pointed out Jordan. “Even down to listening to the music that the character would listen to. It just gave me permission to get a little wild and have some fun.”


Jordan’s romantic life

Even though Jordan’s career in the entertainment career has been quite successful, her romantic life has not been as good as one would expect.

In 2001, she married her longtime boyfriend Conor O’Neill, who works as a film editor and also as an actor. However, they divorced in July 2005. So far, Jordan has not had any children.


Cheryl nowadays

Cheryl, on the other hand, is still married to Brian Russell and is the proud grandmother of the three children that her stepdaughter, Lindsay Russell, has welcomed so far.

During a conversation with Fox News, Cheryl jokingly said that the secret behind a lasting marriage was marrying the right person.

On a more series note, she said that throughout the ups and downs, they are “still good friends who really just love each other.”

Finally, the actress admitted that faith was an important aspect in her life as she described herself as an “avid churchgoer” whose relationship with God has gotten stronger and deeper over the years.
