A native of the Sunshine State, Molly Ringwald was born into a musically inclined family, with her father Bob Ringwald being blind but serving as a banjo player and the frontman of the Great pacific Jazz Band. Being the youngest of her siblings and having two older sisters, Molly didn’t get spoiled and instead was displaying her acting chops as early as age five, when she performed in a local production of Alice in Wonderland. She upped the ante completely the following year when she recorded and released a jazz music album title I Wanna Be Loved by You. The music was played by none other than her father’s band.
By the onset of the 1980s, Molly’s film career had taken off and she was making great strides following her debut role in the 1979 flick The Facts of Life. Her portrayal of Miranda in the 1982 film adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Tempest earned her a Golden Globe nomination and led to her being cast in 1984’s Sixteen Candles by John Hughes. Playing the character of Samantha, her performance resonated with the young viewers and earned Molly a "Best young Actress" Young Artist Award. Molly’s rising popularity and incisive approach towards the characters that she was being cast for made her the ideal choice for playing Claire in Hughes’s The Breakfast Club and then the lead in his 1986 film, Pretty in Pink.
Molly seemed to have gotten disenchanted with Hollywood towards the late eighties, starting with her turning down the lead role of Amanda Jones in Some Kind of Wonderful and the now iconic roles of Vivian Ward in Pretty Woman and Molly Jenson in Ghost that made megastars out of the respective actresses Julia Roberts and Demi Moore in 1990. Molly instead moved to France and started doing French films and acting on stage, where she met her first husband, writer Valery Lameignère and married him in 1999. However, following their divorce just three years later, Molly returned to the US and restarted her acting career and is currently part of the main cast of ABC’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager, playing the mother of a teen mom.
