Robyn Lively has gained a worldwide audience and a steady fan base with her many memorable roles in film and television. She is beginning her second season of Amazon’s critically acclaimed, "Gortimer Gibbon’s Life On Normal Street." She was recently seen in the thriller "Ouija," produced by Michael Bay. But, Robyn may be best known for her role as the southern temptress, Lana Budding Milford in David Lynch's, "Twin Peaks," or starring with Jason Bateman and Bob Newhart in "George & Leo," or as Mandy Patinkin’s nurse in David Kelly’s, "Chicago Hope." The role of Lane McKenzie in Aaron Spelling’s hit series "Savannah" put Robyn on the cover of TV Guide. But, it was her role as “Louise Miller” in the quirky cult-classic movie "Teen Witch" where she gained most of her “popularity” and stole the hearts of many. At any given moment, Robyn’s sister, Blake Lively ("Gossip Girl," "The Town") and her younger brother, Eric Lively ("Madea’s Christmas," "The L Word") will break out into song and dance to reenact the most memorable scenes in the movie.
Robyn began her acting career at the age of 3 in Powder Springs, Georgia. By age 5 she had numerous national network commercials and print work under her belt and had appeared in the critically acclaimed tv movie "Summer of My German Soldier." The acting family soon felt the pull for greater opportunities so they packed up the motorhome and headed west.
As a teenager, Lively was easily cast for quintessential adolescent roles, such as Goldie Hawn’s pink haired, punked out daughter in "Wildcats" with Woody Harrelson and as Robin Williams’ daughter in "The Best of Times." A few years later, she was cast as the female lead opposite Ralph Macchio in "The Karate Kid III." Robyn was nominated for an Emmy for her performance in "The Less Than Perfect Daughter."
Lively’s additional television credits include "30 Rock," playing Tina Fey’s nemesis, “Kelsey Winthrop” in the Golden Globe winning episode "Reunion." She also appeared in "Major Crimes," "Longmire," "Psych," "It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "CSI," "The Mentalist," "Body of Proof," and "Saving Grace" opposite Holly Hunter to name just a few. Some of Robyn’s most recent film credits include "Sironia" with Tony Hale ("Veep"), "Chasing Ghosts" with Tim Meadows, "One Heart," "Catch," and "Letters To God."
Robyn resides in Los Angeles with her husband, actor Bart Johnson ("High School Musical" franchise), and her three children Baylen, Kate and Wyatt.
