[Photo] Like Lisa, Vanessa Angel scores high marks in the areas of beauty and intelligence. The British-born actress began her career at age 16 as a model when she was discovered by world renown agent Eileen Ford. She admits to gaining life experience when, at such an early age, she relocated to New York, traveled the world and appeared on magazine covers from "Cosmopolitan" to "Vogue."

Angel's transition from modeling to acting came rather suddenly when, in 1985, she was chosen by director John Landis to play a Russian spy in the film, "Spies Like Us." She quickly mastered a Russian accent and was later featured in the Paul McCartney video of the same name.

[Photo] A versatile actress who has studied under Sondra Lee and Frank Casaro at The Actors Studio in New York, Angel has had roles in the feature films, "Killer Instinct," "King of New York," "Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot" with Sylvester Stallone and "Sleep With Me" with Eric Stoltz and Meg Tilly. In 1994, she co-starred on the theatrical film, "Cityscrapes" -- a tragic story of young adults with dysfunctional relationships who live in Los Angeles, and she just finished a co-starring role in the upcoming feature film "Kingpin," with Woody Harrelson and Randy Quaid.

In addition to her work on film, Angel has guest starred on several television series including, "Melrose Place," on which she played the recurring role of a bisexual model, and "Reasonable Doubts." She was also featured in the Jackie Collins mini-series "Lady Boss" and the high-rated USA Network movie, "The Cover Girl Murders."

Weird Science is produced by St. Clare Entertainment in association with Universal Television.
