Traylor Howard ‘s Bio, Age
Traylor Howard was born in Orlando, Florida, United States, on the 14th of June 1966 to parents Peggy E Howard and Robert M. Howard. She was by no means born to a poor family. Her father, Robert was the president of the Howard Fertilizer and Chemical Company. Every indication suggests she is the only child of her parents and she was so raised. Traylor, who shares a first name with her mother’s maiden name, like many of her peers, graduated from college with a degree in Advertising.
Her introduction to the spotlight came as a child when she starred in a commercial for Juicy Fruit chewing gum. She did not, however, follow her interest in acting at college. Even though it isn’t the normal path most professional actors have taken into the profession, Traylor worked in advertising for a couple of years. She was in an AT&T commercial ‘You Will’ series.
The commercial which was broadcast in 1994 kick-started Traylor’s acting career and resulted in a move to Los Angeles where she auditioned for roles in film and television. She got her first role in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. It was a small role as an office temp in an episode of the show. In the same year, she was cast as Fran in Till the End of the Night.
After the first two credits in 1994, roles became a little difficult to come by for Traylor Howard until 1996 when she secured a role as Joy Barnes in Boston Common. She was a regular on the show, starring in 32 episodes from 1996 to 1997. This role gave her the impetus to secure more acting jobs, appearing in shows such as Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place, which became one of the most popular projects of her career. She starred on the show as Sharon Carter and appeared in a total of 81 episodes. She played the role from 1998 to 2001, during which she starred in three films including Confessions of a Sexist Pig, Dirty Work.
Actors often end up working with another actor multiple times, reflecting natural chemistry they have with the actor. Traylor Howard had that with Jim Carrey, working with the iconic star twice in Me, Myself & Irene, and Son of the Mask.
After Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place, Traylor Howard has starred in other shows like The West Wing, First Monday, The Division, making episodic appearances until she got cast as a lead in Monk, playing the character Natalie Teeger. She won a Gracie Allen Award for her performance in the comedy show.
Monk, which ended in 2009, turned out to be her most significant work till date, with the actress failing to secure a role both in film and television after and eventually retiring from acting in 2010.
Traylor Howard has managed to be married a solid three times. She was married to Cameron Hall from 1991 to 1993 and later to Christian Navarro from 2003 to 2006. Her current marriage is to Jarel Portman, the son of the famous architect, John C. Portman Jr.
There is a discrepancy in the information regarding the number of children birthed by the actress, a few sources say that she has only one child whose father’s identity is not known while others opine that she has two children. For what it’s worth, we know that the actress is a mother.
