Early life

Angie Harmon was born on August 10, 1972 in Highland Park, Texas, the daughter of Daphne Demar (née Caravageli) and Lawrence Paul "Larry" Harmon, a hospital information-network executive in Dallas.[1] Her mother is of Greek descent.[2]

Harmon worked as a Donna Karan and appeared on the covers of ELLE, Cosmopolitan, and Esquire. She is signed with IMG Models in New York City.


Harmon began acting in 1995 after being discovered on a plane by David Hasselhoff.[4] She then starred in several television series, including Baywatch Nights, Baywatch and C-16: FBI. She also appeared in the 1998 film, Lawn Dogs, which received only a limited theatrical release. In the late 1990s, Harmon became better known by joining the long-running NBC series Law & Order, playing ADA Abbie Carmichael from 1998 to 2001. During this time, she also voiced Barbara Gordon in the animated film Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, succeeding Stockard Channing in that role.

Harmon left Law & Order to concentrate on her film career, saying that she preferred working in film to television.[5] After appearing in the 2001 direct-to-video film Good Advice, she had a supporting role in Agent Cody Banks (2003), playing the CIA handler of a teenage agent (Frankie Muniz).[6] In 2006, Harmon co-starred with Cuba Gooding Jr. and James Woods in the direct-to-DVD political suspense drama End Game.

In 2006, Harmon starred as the lead in the ABC pilot Secrets of a Small Town, which did not go to series. She also starred in another failed television show on NBC, Inconceivable, which was canceled after two episodes. The following year, she starred in another ABC pilot, Women's Murder Club. The police drama was picked up, but only ten of the thirteen episodes aired.

Harmon was one of five actresses who posed discreetly nude for the May 2008 issue of Allure magazine, alongside Gabrielle Union, Zoe McLellan, Jill Scott, and Ana Ortiz.[7]

In 2010 Harmon hosted an infomercial for "UpLiv", a stress management program and also appeared in an infomercial for Olay "Pro-X" wrinkle cream.[8][9]

Since July 2010, she has co-starred with Sasha Alexander in the TNT crime-drama series Rizzoli & Isles, playing Boston, Massachusetts, police detective Jane Rizzoli. The show premiered July 12, 2010.[10]

Harmon appears in the music video for This Ole Boy", released in January 2012.

In July 2012, during promotions for a new season of Rizzoli and Isles, Harmon revealed on Conan O'Brien's late night series that she was a fan of and very interested in playing a movie version of the She-Hulk from Marvel Comics should such a movie become available.[11]

Harmon won Outstanding Female Actor in a Leading Role in a Drama Series for Rizzoli & Isles at the 2012 Gracie Allen Awards.[12]

Personal life

Harmon is married to former NFL player Jason Sehorn.[13] The two were engaged on March 13, 2000.[14] Harmon was taping an interview segment on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno when Leno called Sehorn out as a surprise guest. Sehorn immediately walked up to Harmon, knelt down on one knee and proposed.[14] They were married on June 9, 2001,[15] and have three daughters:[16] Finley Faith (born October 14, 2003),[17] Avery Grace (born June 22, 2005), and Emery Hope (born December 18, 2008).[13] Harmon and Sehorn announced their separation in November 2014, after 13 years of marriage.[18]

Harmon is a 2004 Republican National Convention.[19][20] She supported John McCain for president in 2008.[21][22] Harmon is a devout Christian and has stressed the importance of prayer in her daily life.[23][24]
