Laura Prepon is an American actress, best known for her role as Donna Pinciotti in the long-running Fox situation comedy That '70s Show, for all eight seasons. She is also known for the role of Hannah Daniels on the ABC drama October Road. She has voiced characters in animated TV series such as American Dad! and King of the Hill, as well as a character in the video game Halo 2.

Prepon was born in Watchung, New Jersey, the daughter of Marjorie, a high school teacher, and Michael, an orthopedic surgeon, who died during heart surgery in 1993. Prepon is the youngest of five children. She attended Watchung Hills Regional High School. She studied at Caroline Thomas' Total Theater Lab in New York City. Her father was of Russian Jewish descent and her mother is of Irish Catholic background. In a December 2007 interview in Women's Health, Prepon stated that she was a Scientologist.

She started studying acting at the young age of 15 as well as dancing--ballet, jazz, and modern. She also played soccer and other sports. Before acting became her profession, she was a model, working in Paris, Milan, and elsewhere in Europe.

Laura resides in Watchung when not filming in Los Angeles. She loves sneakers and vintage clothes. Her favorite book is 'The Hobbit' by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Prepon's first job was on a TV commercial for MCI, which used to be a phone company people knew about, until it was bought by Verizon. Her big breakout hit was That 70's Show. Prior to that she did a few movies, and was a model in Paris, Milan, and Brazil. Prepon can be seen in the new ABC show October Road, which debuted March 15, 2007 playing the feature role of Hannah.

It's worth noting that Prepon was an executive producer of Robert Hall's debut film Lightning Bug. But even with a title like that, people around the office insisted on calling her Donna.
