Jennifer Rachel Landon (born on August 29 1983 in Malibu, California) is a three-time Emmy-winning American actress. She is only the second actress next to Jennifer Finnigan to win three of the awards in a row.

Landon is the daughter of the late actor Michael Landon and his third wife, Cindy Clerico. She is also the half-sister of screenwriter Christopher Landon ("Disturbia") and director Michael Landon Jr.

Career

Jennifer Landon got her first acting job from her father, actor Michael Landon, when he cast her to play a little girl in one of the final episodes of his television series, "Highway to Heaven", when she was only five years old. Jennifer would work with her father once more, before cancer took his life, when he cast her as Jennifer Kramer in the pilot for his next television series, "US".

Landon graduated from Brentwood School before moving to New York City to attend New York University where she appeared in several theater productions. In 2004, Jennifer co-starred in an independent film, L.A. DJ. In early 2005 she was cast to play the character of Gwen Norbeck for one episode on the soap opera, "As the World Turns", but the producers liked her performance so much they decided to add the character to the cast and signed her to a three-year contract. The new character of Gwen Norbeck was eventually tied into the show by making her the half-sister of an existing established character, Carly Tenney.

Landon is also a budding recording artist. Since the character of Gwen Norbeck was first introduced on "As the World Turns" as a musician and the lead singer in an all-girl rock band, Jennifer has sung several times on the show. In late 2006, the character's storyline focused on her pursuing a music career and two singles have been recorded, "Slide" and "I Saw Love", both were written by Nini Camps, a singer/song-writer from New York, NY. [http://www.ninicamps.com] Both singles were released under Jennifer Landon's name and made available on iTunes.

In April 2007, Landon juggled dual roles on "As the World Turns". She continued to play Gwen Norbeck Munson and Cleo Babbitt, a Gwen look-a-like with dark-brown hair and a gap-toothed smile until Cleo was written off the show July 10.
