Teen icon Molly Ringwald began her career at the tender age of 5 as the Doormouse in Alice in Wonderland. At 11, she and her adorable red curls were cast in Different Strokes and Facts of Life. Molly is most worshiped for her roles in John Hughes' Brat Pack films. She won over high schoolers everywhere when she played Sam Baker in Sixteen Candles, and then starred in offbeat classics Pretty in Pink and The Breakfast Club. Then came the '90s. Too bad for Molly, but much like scrunchies and side ponytails, she was out of style. She packed up her bags and headed to France for four years. When she came back stateside, Molly turned her attention to Broadway, starring in Cabaret and Enchanted April. She also appeared in the short-lived series Townies, as well as Since You’ve Been Gone.
She may have been out of the limelight for a few years, but Molly is back on our radar in Secret Life! She plays Amy’s mom, and deals with a pregnancy of her very own –– both on and off screen. Good thing Molly is used to teen drama!
