Biography

Audrey Landers, (born July 18, 1956, in Philadelphia), is an American actress and singer, who is probably best known for her role in the television drama series Dallas as Afton Cooper.

Landers debuted with a country and western song that she wrote and performed at the age of twelve, which led to a Nashville recording contract for Epic Records, a performance on the Merv Griffin show, and a yearlong role on the daytime drama, The Secret Storm. During her teen years, she acted on the daytime drama Somerset, and studied music at the Juilliard School in New York, while majoring in psychology at Columbia University. Her feature film debut was in The Tennessee Stallion (1978) with her younger sister, Judy Landers.

After college, she moved to Los Angeles, and landed her role in Dallas, which she held from 1981 to 1984 and a brief return in 1989. Landers starred on Dallas during its highest rated seasons. In the four seasons that Landers appeared frequently, Dallas was the #1 rated show three times (and #2 behind only 60 Minutes the other year). It never held the #1 ranking in a season that Landers did not appear. She is also remembered as "Val" in the film version of A Chorus Line (1985), and has had guest roles on many television series. From 1990-1991, Audrey played the role of "Charlotte Hesser" on the ABC daytime drama series, One Life to Live.

As a singer and composer, she has earned 10 gold singles, 4 gold albums, and 2 platinum albums. She is currently playing in a USA original series Burn Notice as the girlfriend of the characther Sam. Her character is Veronica.
