Allison Munn (born October 7, 1974) is an American actress, who played Caroline Dupree in the Fox sitcom That '70s Show. She also portrays Tina Haven in The WB sitcom What I Like About You, Lauren in The WB/CW drama One Tree Hill and Anne Harper in the Nickelodeon sitcom Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn.

Early life[edit]

Munn was born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina, to Russell and Nadine Munn.[citation needed]

Munn graduated from AC Flora High School and The College of Charleston. From there, she moved to New York, where she won a role in the Off-Broadway classic, The Fantasticks.

Career[edit]

Munn's further auditions led to small roles in Hollywood productions; most notably in the drama White Oleander opposite Alison Lohman, Michelle Pfeiffer, Robin Wright-Penn and Renee Zellweger, based on the Janet Fitch novel of the same name, and in Cameron Crowe's romantic tragicomedy Elizabethtown opposite Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst.

Munn's biggest break came in September 2003 when she won a co-starring role, opposite Amanda Bynes and Jennie Garth, on The WB sitcom What I Like About You in the second season as Tina Haven, Holly Tyler's new best friend. Although their characters are the same age, Munn is eleven-and-a-half years older than her co-star Bynes. Munn remained on the show until the show ended with the fourth season on April 24, 2006. Munn is also known for her recurring role as Caroline, Fez's borderline stalker girlfriend on the Fox sitcom That '70s Show.

Munn co-starred as Cindy in the short-lived ABC sitcom Carpoolers that ran from October 2, 2007 to March 4, 2008. In 2009, Munn began a recurring role on The WB drama One Tree Hill plaing Lauren, Jamie Scott's teacher who begins to date Skills Taylor at the end of the sixth season.

In 2014, Munn began co-starring opposite Brian Stepanek as Anne Harper, the mother of the titular quadruplets in Nickelodeon sitcom Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn.

Personal life[edit]

Munn began dating her childhood friend, actor Scott Holroyd in 2004. They became engaged in Paris in December 2006 and married on November 17, 2007, at the French Huguenot Church in Charleston, South Carolina. They reside in Los Angeles with their pet terrier, Buster Keaton.[1] In November 2011 Munn announced, via her Twitter account, that she and Holroyd welcomed their son Nathan Powell Holroyd.[2][3] She gave birth to their daughter Nora in 2015.

Political activism[edit]

Munn lends her name and support to the non-profit political organization Rock the Vote, where she is actively involved in encouraging young people to register to vote.
