Molly Ringwald

American actress Molly Kathleen Ringwald was born in 1968 in the sunny state of California into the family of a blind jazz pianist Robert Scott Ringwald and Adele Edith. Her career was set off early on as she participated in the stage performance of Alice in Wonderland. Then, at the age of 6, she recorded a song "I Wanna Be Loved by You" with her father and his band, The Fulton Street Jazz Band. Since then she was noticed by TV producers and agents, which led to her filming in various commercials.

In 1979, she appeared in one of the episodes of the series Different Strokes, which was later followed by a role in the TV-show Facts of Life.

Her breakthrough into the big-screen performance was the role in the John Hughes' flick Sixteen Candles. Then in 1985 she was cast in the teenager blockbuster The Breakfast Club with Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson and Anthony Michael Hall. That film opened the door for many others to follow, such as Pretty in Pink, The Pick-up Artist and Fresh Horses. In the mid 80s she was one of the hottest new sensations.

Now she is on The Secret Life of the American Teenager.
