Susan Ward (born April 15, 1976) is an American actress and model.
Ward began modeling at the age of 13, leaving school and moving to New York to do so, deciding to try her hand at acting several years later. She appeared in soap orera All My Children in 1995, and later was cast in NBC's short-lived primetime teen drama Malibu Shores produced by Aaron Spelling.
In late 1996, Ward landed a role on Aaron Spelling's daytime soap opera Sunset Beach, where she played the virginal Meg Cummings. Sunset Beach aired between 1997–99. In 1999 she began to pursue a movie career, and starred as the psychotic Brittany Foster in the erotic thriller The In Crowd. The movie was a commercial disappointment in theaters, but found some success on cable and home video. The following year, Ward played a supporting role in the hit movie Shallow Hal. She has also acted in numerous other direct-to-DVD movies, and has made guest appearances in various TV shows, most notably Friends.
Ward was born in Monroe, Louisiana. She attended a private, Christian school (Monroe Christian School) as well as Ouachita Parish High School, in Monroe, LA. She briefly attended Northeast Louisiana University (now University of Louisiana at Monroe).
Ward is married to David C. Robinson, the vice-president of Morgan Creek Productions, the movie studio that produced The In Crowd. They met when he cast her in the movie in 1999 and wed on June 4, 2005. Dr. D.H. Clark, a friend of the bride, performed the ceremony. They welcomed their first child, a boy, Cameron, on July 14, 2013. She has one brother, Michael Ward.
