Piper Perabo (Bio)
Piper Perabo was born in 1977 in Toms River, New Jersey, the
daughter of an English Professor, and attended Toms River
High School North. Someone who knew her in high school
describes her as "a sweetheart who was very kind and caring".
After high school she studied acting at Ohio University
where she graduated summa cum laude in 1998 with a BFA in
After graduating she studied
theater at the LaMama Theater in New York and then had roles in 2 short,
low budget films in 1998 & 1999. The first was in a short film called
Single Spaced (1998). This was followed by a role in Knuckleface Jones
(1999) in which she played the part of a giant squid!
Piper's first big role was the lead female part in the film Whiteboyz (1999)
in which she played the girlfriend of wannabe gangster
rapper. That role will pale in comparison to the big break
she had when she was cast in the role of Violet in the big
budget Hollywood film, Coyote Ugly, a film whose plot sounds
a lot like Piper's own life - moved from New Jersey to New
York and worked in a bar while waiting for a big break.
Piper appears in the recent
release "Rocky & Bullwinkle" and is already busy with her next role in
the film Lost & Delirious which is currently being filmed in Canada.
Piper has 2 younger
brothers, Adam and Noah. Adam will be a senior in High School this year
and is apparently also very talented, being able to sing as well as act.
