Biography » theater opera and movie personalities » lindsay lohan


Child actress Lindsay Lohan was already an experienced performer when she made her feature debut in the 1998 remake of The Parent Trap. Born in New York City, Lohan began modeling at age three. After appearing in numerous TV commercials, Lohan moved to series TV with a role on the daytime serial Another World from 1996 to 1997.


Cast as The Parent Trap’s scheming twin sisters after a six month search for just the right girl, Lohan succeeded in filling Hayley Mills’ shoes, winning over audiences with her pert charm as both the Californian Hallie and the British-raised Annie. She subsequently starred in the Disney TV film Life-Size (2000). Subsequently cast in actress Bette Midler’s shortlived sitcom Bette, Lohan took a turn as a teenage gossip columnist (Get a Clue (2002)) before turning up in yet another remake of a Disney classic, Freaky Friday (2003).


As Lohan’s big solo screen debut drew ever closer with the impending release of 2004’s Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen, a much publicized rift with Lizzy McGuire star/pop singer Hilary Duff was eased somewhat as the former publicly extended the latter an olive branch to ease rising tensions. Though only time could tell whether the dueling teen pop stars-turned-actresses would truly halt their ongoing war of words, Lohan’s film drew decent reviews - ensuring that both her and Duff would continue to compete for the spotlight in the years to come
