Breaking into acting after a brief stint in modeling and television commercials, Brooke Langton first gained exposure on everyone's favorite comely beach-bouncer series, Baywatch. A native Texan, it may seem fitting considering her freshman role that Langton studied Marine Biology at San Diego State University before making the leap from the classroom to the small screen. Living in Japan and modeling for eight months before moving to L.A. to pursue a career in acting, Langton got involved with theater in Portland and Texas before breaking into television on Baywatch and Beverly Hills 90210. After appearing in such made-for-television movies as Moment of Truth: A Mother's Deception (1994) and Eye of the Stalker (1995), Langton landed a role on 90210's mature (at least age-wise) cousin, Melrose Place. Later gaining notice for her role in Doug Liman's breakthrough indie hit Swingers in 1996, Langton returned to television for her role in The Net before going back to the big screen in The Replacements (2000). After the cancellation of The Net, Langton began work on another television series, When I Grow Up (2001). Following the cancellation of that short-lived series, Langton returned to the big screen with roles in Playing Mona Lisa, Kiss the Bride, and The Hulk. She is engaged to be married to Carl Hagmier in February 2005.
