KAY LENZ, who portrays Sandy, Roger Cobb's lovely ex-wife in 'House' has been entertaining audiences all her life. Having made her successful television debut at the tender age of two months, Kay continued to act, and while most girls her age were busy playing hopscotch and jumping rope, Kay was displaying her talents in another arena as well -- that of the Rodeo. Kay Lenz

Born in Los Angeles on the 4th March 1953, Kay was the only child of producer/commentator Ted Lenz and model/radio engineer Kay Miller Lenz. While her father was producing the Al Jarvis 'Hollywood on Television' show, it was decided that guest Dottie O'Brien, a Capitol recording artist, should hold a real baby while singing a lullaby. At eight weeks old, Kay's career was launched in the arms of O'Brien, who struggled to keep her singing voice above the wails of the infant. The hilarious first time performance brought Kay her first fan mail.

SandyFront that moment on, she literally grew up in front of the TV cameras, appearing in many of the TV commercials produced by her father, and as a guest performer on nearly every children's and teenage show in Hollywood.

At the age of 11, she acted and sang in 'My Genie and Me,' a little theatre musical that ran for 165 showings. Two tears later, she starred with Henry Darrow and Monte Markham in the Pasadena Playhouse of 'Dark of the Moon.'

Throughout her childhood, Kay's passion for acting was split with her love of the rodeo. When she wasnt in school or acting, Kay could invariably be found on the local rodeo circuit. However at the age of 17, she found herself having to choose between a career in the rodeo or a career as an actress -- acting won out.

Kay went on to appear in the series' 'The Monroes,' 'The Andy Griffith Show,' 'Ironside,' and 'The Tammy Grimes Show,' before graduating from Grant High School in Van Nuys, Ca.

Sandy and JimmyKay is probably best known for her sensitive portrayal of a young hippie in the title role of the hit film 'Breezy,' in which she starred opposite William Holden. Directed by Clint Eastwood, the role propelled her into the limelight and led to a succession of other film roles including 'White Line Fever,' 'The Great Scout and Cathouse Thursday,' 'The Passage,' 'Mean Dog Blues,' 'Prisoners of the Lost Universe,' 'Trial by Terror,' 'American Graffiti,' and 'Fast Walking.'

In television, Kay starred in the Hallmark Hall of Fame production of 'Lisa Bright and Dark,' which earned her widespread critical acclaim; and in the movies of the week 'Playmates' and 'Weekend Nun,' in addition to 'Summer Without Boys,' 'Heart in Hiding,' 'Journey from Darkness,' 'The Initiation of Sara,' 'Seeding of Sara Burns,' 'Father Brown, Detective,' and 'Rich Man, Poor Man.' She has also had featured roles in the episodic TV shows 'Finder of Lost Loves,' 'Matt Houston' and 'Cagney and Lacey.'
