A young woman on reruns of Law & Order looks so much like the model Angie Harmon who does the Neutrogena ads and commercials. Am I correct in assuming it's the same person? If so, what else can you tell me about her?

You're right, the women are one and the same. Angie Harmon, 30, co-starred on NBC's Law & Order as Assistant District Attorney Abbie Carmichael from 1998-2001. The Dallas native was discovered by David Hasselhoff on an airplane flight and went on to star with him in Baywatch Nights for two seasons. She also co-starred in the short-lived C-16: FBI before hitting it big with Law & Order. Harmon inherited her model looks from her parents, both of whom were models. She got into the business as a child and won the national cover girl contest for Seventeen magazine at age 15. After graduating from high school in Texas, she moved to New York and concentrated on modeling. Harmon has been featured in magazines such as Vogue, Bazaar, and Cosmopolitan. Films include Good Advice and the upcoming Agent Cody Banks. She has been married to Jason Sehorn of the New York Giants for more than a year. Sehorn surprised Harmon by proposing to her on NBC's The Tonight Show on March 13, 2000.
