BIOGRAPHY

Lou Mulford was born in North Carolina, raised in Virginia and moved to Los Angeles to pursue her love of story telling as a professional actress. She has worked in the business from age eighteen playing principal roles in hundreds of commercials and has appeared in numerous television and film roles.

In the 80′s you saw Lou every day as an actress/model on the NBC game show SALE OF THE CENTURY, filling in for the Co-Hostess with Jim Perry on occasion as well. She was bitten by the theatre bug at age 8 and has graced the stage on both coasts in many productions. Lou took a long hiatus from film and TV to raise her two daughters. She was head of Calvary Church Drama Ministry in Pacific Palisades from 1995-2005 writing, directing, teaching, performing and producing while her children were growing up.

She returned to her film and television career in 2007 and began rapidly building her resume again. Lou wrote, produced, and starred in a short comedic film INVASION OF THE MONEY $NATCHER$ completed in December 2012 and is currently writing and developing two other feature film projects.

Lou recently guest starred on NCIS with Mark Harmon and Scott Bakula and found the entire NCIS cast and crew to be the most welcoming and supportive of her long career.  One of Lou’s other more rewarding and favorite roles was working with Matt Weiner and January Jones as Betty Draper’s mother on MAD MEN.

Lou lives in Los Angeles with her husband, and her two loony adopted shelter dogs Frankie & Jonnie.

Fun Facts:

Lou’s mentor and friend, the late choreographer and director Joe Layton, encouraged Lou to move to LA after directing her in THE LOST COLONY, Manteo N.C.

Lou played George Clooney’s girlfriend “Shelly” in an episode of the very first “ER”; a 1980’s sitcom starring Elliot Gould, George Clooney, and Jason Alexander.
