Laurene Landon


B: March 17, 1957 in Toronto, Ontario

Laurene Landon Coughlin’s family moved to the United States when she was four and it’s best to think of her being Canadian only because she was born in Toronto. Often remembered for playing the daffy stewardess in Airplane II: The Sequel (1982), which was directed by Ken Finkleman. She was impressive in two action/adventure features for director Matt Cimber playing the titular rugged warrior woman in Hundra (1983) and spitfire in Yellow Hair and the Fortress of Gold (1984), which is sometimes titled Yellow Hair and the Pecos Kid. Landon is especially well known for her role as the courageous policewoman Teresa Mallory in Maniac Cop (1988) and Maniac Cop 2 (1990).
