Birth Name: Jodi Lyn OKeefe
Born: 10/10/1978
Birth Place: Clifford Beach, New Jersey, USA

A striking dark-haired actress, Jodi Lyn O'Keefe began her professional career at age eight as a child model. While still in her teens, she landed a regular role on the NBC daytime drama "Another World" in 1995 as the romantically confused Maggie Cory. The young actress moved to primetime with a regular role on the CBS crime drama "Nash Bridges" (1996-2001) aptly playing Cassidy Bridges, the precocious teenaged daughter of Don Johnson's title character. As the unconventional cop's child, daring Cassidy was often put in dangerous situations, only to be saved by her detective dad. O'Keefe's film debut saw her in another dangerous situation, with a supporting role as Sarah, a prep school student and potential victim of the unrelenting killer Michael Myers in 1998's horror flick "Halloween: H20". She followed with a convincing portrayal of the malicious spoiled rich girl Taylor in "She's All That" (1999). As the fickle ex-girlfriend of the popular Zack (Freddie Prinze Jr) in this high school romantic comedy, O'Keefe turned in a teen villain performance that rivaled James Spader's Steff in the 1986 genre classic "Pretty In Pink".
