Redhead of the Week

Jamie Michelle Luner, an American television actress, is probably best known for her role as Lexi Sterling on the night time soap opera Melrose Place. Born in Palo Alto, CA, Jamie is 37 years old.

After guest starring in several episodes of the sitcom Growing Pains, Luner went on to star as Cindy Lubbock in a spinoff, Just the Ten of Us (1988-1990), then returned to television in 1993 in the TV movie, Why My Daughter?, starring opposite Linda Gray. Luner followed this up with a succession of TV movies, most notably Confessions of a Sorority Girl (1994), which began her extended professional association with producer Aaron Spelling.

Luner's next big break came in 1996, when she was cast as scheming vixen Peyton Richards in Spelling's prime-time soap opera, Savannah (1996-1997). Later in 1997, Luner was cast in Spelling's Melrose Place, playing the role of scheming Lexi Sterling until the show's conclusion in 1999. In 1999, immediately following the cancellation of Melrose Place, Luner was cast as Rachel Burke, Ally Walker's replacement in NBC's Profiler. She played the role until the show was cancelled at the end of its fourth season in 2000.

Following the cancellation of Profiler, Luner continued to work steadily, with guest appearances on several television shows including The Outer Limits, CSI: Miami and a three-episode arc on That's Life. In 2000, Luner also starred in the independent feature Sacrifice, along with Michael Madsen. In 2003, Luner starred opposite Nicholas Lea in the SCI FI Channel original movie Threshold, and in 2004 guest-starred in an episode of NCIS.

In 2007, Luner appeared, as Susan in the comedy Black and Bluestein at The Santa Monica Playhouse. Also that year, Luner starred in Nuclear Hurricane, a Sci-Fi Channel original movie, and made a guest appearance on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
