POUND RIDGE, N.Y. --Happy birthday to Pound Ridge's Carey Lowell.
Carey Lowell, an actress and model, turns 55 on Thursday.
Lowell was born in Huntington, N.Y., the daughter of geologist James Lowell. She spent much of her childhood living in various countries, including Libya, the Netherlands and France, and in the United States in Houston and Denver, where her family settled when she was 12.
After a year at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she majored in literature, she moved to New York City to pursue modeling, and modeled for such clients as Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, and attended New York University.
She also studied at Manhattan's Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre. Lowell broke into acting in the film “Dangerously Close,” followed by a small role in the Robin Williams movie “Club Paradise.”
She went on to roles including those of Bond girl Pam Bouvier in the James Bond movie “Licence to Kill” (1989) and, starting in 1996, Assistant District Attorney Jamie Ross on the television drama “Law & Order,” a character she reprised in 2005 for a guest role on its spinoff, “Law & Order: Trial by Jury.”
In 2012, Lowell lent her likeness and voice while reprising her “Licence to Kill” role in the video game 007 Legends.
