  Audrey Landers is an accomplished actor, singer, writer, director, composer, producer, and business woman. She is best known to fans all over the world for her memorable role as “Afton Cooper” for eight years on “Dallas” and her expansive television career spanning hundreds of television gigs in the 1980s and 1990s. In 2013/2014, Miss Landers reprised her role in the new “Dallas” series on TNT.

Keeping it all in the family, her mother Ruth has managed and produced Audrey’s career for over 30 years, and continuing their long-standing business partnership, Audrey and Ruth co-created Landers STAR Collection, a women’s clothing and accessories company, providing affordable glamorous fashion to women across the globe. Their fashion philosophy is, “Every woman is a star and she deserves to shine.”


As a teen, Audrey studied music at the Juilliard School in New York, while majoring in psychology at Columbia University and landing professional acting roles. She literally grew up in front of the camera and on stage. As a child and young teen in the 1970s, she starred on daytime television (Secret Storm and Somerset,) followed by hundreds of guest roles in the 1980s and 1990s (Love Boat, Fantasy Island, The Cosby Show, Murder She Wrote, Hotel, The Dukes of Hazzard, MacGyver, among others) and, of course, her long-run on Dallas through the 1980s to the show's end in the 1990s.

During that time, she also became a popular frequent celebrity participant on every game show from Match Game and Hollywood Squares to $100,000 Pyramid and Password.

 

In 1985, she starred as “Val” in  A Chorus Line: The Movie. In 1990- 92 she co starred as Charlotte on the daytime drama One Life to Live. She also continued to perform live shows in Europe, Las Vegas and Atlantic City, headlining with Billy Cryst al, Glen Campbell, Bob Hope, Rich Little, and many more. She co-starred and/co produced films such as Ghost Writer and California Casanova.


With toddler boys at home, Audrey co-wrote 47 half-hour episodes and 200+ original songs and also  performed in the award-winning musical educational children’s television series, The Huggabug Club. The TV series was produced by Ruth, who donated the series to public television for five years. The Huggabug Club continues to run on various stations today.


In 2008, Audrey co wrote and directed "Circus Island," a full length feature film, produced by Ruth Landers. It was a family adventure in more ways than one!

Miss Landers has appeared in a recurring role as "Veronica" on USA Network’s Burn Notice. She also costarred in Fox Films remake, Bachelor Party, and costarred as Nadia in the Jackie Mason feature, In a Pickle. She also continues to produce and direct music videos for a variety of up and coming recording artists.


While working in the U.S., Miss Landers was breaking records in Europe as a singer and composer. She  has earned 10 gold singles, four gold albums and two platinum albums.


In 2012, the Florida Motion Picture & Television Association, Inc. voted unanimously to bestow its Lifetime Achievement Award upon Audrey Landers at their 22nd Annual Crystal Reel Awards.


Audrey Landers had stayed somewhat under the radar and behind the scenes in the U.S., raising her twin sons, managing and mentoring her son, Daniel Landers in his rising music career. She continues to be a record-breaking singer/songwriter in Europe (recording and performing in several languages). A children’s book series is in the works, and Landers Productions is developing a mock reality situation comedy based on - the Landers Family.
