Lauralee Bell, who is the daughter of Y&R creators William J. Bell and Lee Phillip Bell, began her daytime career with the series in 1977 at the age of nine as an extra in a non-speaking part and continued to make several more such appearances over the next five years. At 13, she was rewarded with a brief scene and a few lines in a role that slowly became a recurring one. Following her family's gradual move from Chicago to Los Angeles, Bell became a full-time cast member while completing her senior year in high school in 1986.
In addition to acting, Bell is an accomplished model and has appeared in many national publications. She also co-owns an upscale ladies clothing boutique called On Sunset, which is located in the Sunset Plaza in West Hollywood, California. The boutique carries such labels as Roberto Cavalli, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Blumarine.
Bell is married to photographer Scott Martin. They have two children, Christian and Samantha. She has blonde hair and blue eyes, and stands 5' 6" tall. Her birthday is December 22.
