Susan Ward (born April 15, 1976) is an American actress and model.

Career[edit]

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.[1] 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.[1]

In late 1996, Ward landed a role on Aaron Spelling's daytime soap opera Sunset Beach, where she played the virginal Meg Cummings.[2] 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.

In 2009, she landed the role Chloe Kmetko, mother of a young gymnast, on the ABC Family drama series Make It or Break It. She was part of the main cast during the show's first two seasons.

Personal life[edit]

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.[1] 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 "Hey - You're Supposed to be Over There........". They met when he cast her in the movie in 1999 and wed on June 4, 2005. Dr. Wayne Keltner, a friend of the bride, performed the ceremony.[3] They welcomed their first child, a boy, Cameron, on July 14, 2013.[4] She has one brother, Michael Ward.
