Angelica Bridges (born November 20,
1973 in Harrisonville, Missouri) is an American actress, model and singer.
She was discovered by the president of Elite Model Management when she was
singing at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida.
Angelica was given a pictorial spread in Playboy Magazine's November 2001
issue at the age of 27 and featured as the issue's cover model.
She was married to NHL defenceman Sheldon Souray of the Edmonton Oilers.
She and her daughter Valentina Raine Souray (b. September 22, 2003) moved
to Los Angeles following her separation from Sheldon in 2006; Sheldon and
Bridges reconciled and had a second child, Scarlett Skye (b. June 2007).
A small-town girl,
Angelica was a tomboy throughout her childhood, preferring horseback
riding and fishing rather than playing dress-up. If she did play dress-up,
it was in dance outfits while taking dance lessons since the age of 3.
Dreaming of someday becoming a star, Angelica started out in media with
radio commercials and voice-overs.
The 12-year-old ambitious lass headed to Kansas City, Missouri, to enter a
talent search held by NBC. Angelica may never have needed her looks to
succeed (her prior experience was limited to radio), but now her looks and
talent got her to the next level: she was among the 20 to sign a contract
for future assignments.
Angelica began modeling at 14, and even appeared on the cover of Teen
Magazine and was crowned "Miss Missouri Teen" at 16. After having tried
her hand at music after high school (Angelica was lead singer of a band,
which performed at the "Shanghai TV Festival"), Angelica pursued modeling
more intensively. While performing in Universal Studios, the founder of
the Elite Modeling Agency caught eye of 1992's "California Young Miss
America", and signed her to become an Elite model.
Moving from radio to television, Angelica showed off her model body in
television commercials for products such as Diet Coke, Pontiac, Toyota,
Doritos (pre-Ali Landry), Hanes, IBM, Bally's, Pepsi, American Express (as
a modern-day Ginger Rogers), and most notably, Brut Cologne, as Troy
Aikman's girlfriend. Later Angelica was also known as the "Ultress Girl",
having signed a 2-year contract with Clairol.
After appearing on television in a string of commercials and gracing
several magazine covers, Angelica broke into acting with a recurring role
on the soap opera Days of Our Lives, in 1996. The green-eyed redhead
already had a role in the 1995 comedy California Heat on her resume.
Television guest-appearances began to pour Angelica's way, such as on
Night Stand, NYPD Blue, Cybill, Silk Stalkings, and Conan (as Red Sonja).
In 1997, Angelica did her requisite Baywatch duty, as Lieutenant Taylor
Walsh on the T&A series. Her Baywatch gig didn't last long, and Angelica
continued to do the television rounds, with a recurring role as Omegis in
Mortal Kombat: Conquest, and appearances on Pamela Lee's V.I.P., and the
comedies Suddenly Susan and That '70s Show.
In 1999, the model/actress was cast in a bit part in the film, Mystery
Men, and was then seen in the films Tomcats, Do It For Uncle Manny and The
Month of August.
Angelica currently lives in Agoura Hills, California with husband Sheldon
Souray and their daughter Valentina Raine Souray.
In 2005, Bridges starred as "Stacy" in a popular television commercial for
Geico, helping Tony Little spoof himself in a take-off on his commercials
for exercise equipment.
In June 2006 Bridges starred as "Sammi" in the English independent movie
called Perfect Woman produced by Olympus Productions Limited.
Bridges is the lead singer of the pop group Strawberry Blonde, although
she currently stars at Luxor's topless show "Fantasy" at Las Vegas, but
not as one of the dancers, she is the presenter and singer.
