    Teri Hatcher: biography

    Teri Hatcher became famous for roles in the famous American sitcom Desperate Housewives and the 18th James Bond movie Tomorrow Never Dies.

    The full name of the actress is Teri Lynn Hatcher, who was born in December 1964 in Palo Alto, California. However, Teri spent her childhood years in the nearby town, being the only child in the family. Her parents had nothing to do with the world of cinema and any other art form. Teri's father was a nuclear physicist, and her mother worked as a programmer.

    Teri Hatcher grew up like her peers. The girl loved to dance and enjoyed her school years. In groups of friends, she became a ringleader, but she never upset her parents with bad behavior or disobedience.

    The only thing that Teri lacked during her childhood was her parents' attention. The Hatchers worked hard and left their daughter alone for a lot of time. At the same time, they always gave her pocket money for entertainment and fashionable clothes.

    Teri Hatcher came to the "dream factory" by accident. Once a friend of the girl asked her to go with him to an audition of a Hollywood project. The girl agreed and did not regret it. Teri was offered the role of a mermaid in a popular T.V. show. Then she got a few more small parts. Thus, by the age of 16, Hatcher already had a respectable bank account.

    After receiving her high school diploma, Teri Hatcher enrolled in the American Conservatory Theater. At the same time with her studies, she continued to receive a mathematical education.


    After graduation, Teri Hatcher's cinematic biography continued. The actress starred in episodes of several popular T.V. series. The Love Boat and MacGyver became the most successful ones. Soon Teri was entrusted with the work in the soap opera Capitol.

After Capitol, the girl performed supporting roles in the acclaimed series Star Trek: The Next Generation, L.A. Law, and Murphy Brown.

    In 1989, Teri Hatcher became widely known after the release of the drama The Big Picture. Famous Hollywood directors gave Hatcher supporting roles in the movies Tango & Cash, Soapdish, and Straight Talk.
