      Kay Lenz

      Kay Lenz

      Highest Rated: 78% Falling From Grace (1992)

      Lowest Rated: 11% The Secret Lives of Dorks (2013)

      Birthday: Mar 4, 1953

      Birthplace: Los Angeles, California, USA

      Reedy, wistful brunette lead of the 1970s turned versatile character actress of TV in the 80s and 90s. Lenz began as a child actress in local California TV and had played roles on "Ironside," "The Andy Griffith Show" and "The Tammy Grimes Show" before being cast in George Lucas's "American Graffiti" (1973). She enjoyed one of her best-remembered parts that same year when she played a precocious drifter who becomes involved with an older man in Clint Eastwood's third directorial effort, the sensitive if minor "Breezy." Films including "White Line Fever" (1975) and "Moving Violation" (1976), however, did not reinforce her status as a prominent new ingenue, and she began alternating leads with supporting roles later in the decade. Whether playing tough in "Stripped to Kill" (1987) or sexy in the poor country-western drama "Falling from Grace" (1992), Lenz rose above her often middling material, but she was less well-served by "Mean Dog Blues" (1978), and her credits include mostly obscure items like "Fear" (1988) and "Streets" (1990).
