Who is Taylor Cole?

Born Taylor Quinn Cole on the 29th April 1984, in Arlington, Texas USA, she is an award-winning actress, probably best known to the world as Erika Spalding in the TV series “Summerland” (2004-2005), and also as Rachel Corelli in the comedy film “Dumbells” in 2014, among other differing roles. She is also recognized for her modeling work, especially for advertisements and commercials for Old Spice, Crest toothpaste,  and Dooney & Bourke handbags.

Growing up, Taylor started playing volleyball, and once in Mirabeau B. Lamar High School, she became a part of the Junior Olympics volleyball squad. In addition, Taylor also started modeling.

Career Beginning

During her high school years, Taylor signed a contract with the Los Angeles agency Nous Models Management, and started doing commercials for various brands, which helped her get the first feel of being in show business. However, she would gradually lean towards acting, and the first time a chance appeared for Taylor to start as an actress, she used it.

Acting Career

She returned home for a brief time, and her step-father, Shawn Christian, helped her secure the part of Erika Spalding in the TV series “Summerland”, and together they co-starred in the series until 2005, when it was canceled. This show certainly helped kick-start her acting career, and in the next few years she honed her skills with parts in films and TV series such as “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” in 2006, then a minor role in the action crime-drama film “Loaded” in 2008, and in 2010 her first starring role was as Shade in the horror film “The Violent Kind”, next to Cory Knauf and Bret Roberts.

Rise to Prominence

With the role of Shade, Taylor’s acting career saw her become more popular as an actress, which resulted in higher profile roles, portraying Vicky Roberts in the crime-drama mystery series “The Event” (2010-2011), while in 2012 she was Jennifer Starke in the highly-acclaimed action crime-drama series “The Glades”. However, it was in 2014, that her name became popular all over the world, when she was chosen for the lead role in the comedy film “Dumbbells”, next to Brian Drolet and Hoyt Richards. She then signed a contract with the Hallmark channel, and starred in several romantic drama films for the channel, including “Appetite for Love” and “My Summer Prince” both in 2016, then “Christmas Festival of Ice” in 2017, and “One Winter Weekend”, released in 2018. Most recently, Taylor was cast as Fiona Lane in the TV sci-fi drama-thriller series “Salvation”; her character was planned only as a guest appearance, but thanks to the praise she received from critics, her character has been written into the script and she became a permanent cast member for the second season.
