Lori Loughlin is an American actress, best known for her role as Rebecca Donaldson-Katsopolis on the ABC sitcom Full House.

Lori's best known to American viewers for having turned down the lead in the Blue Lagoon (which went to Brooke Shields) and accepting the part in Full House. Yes, she worked with the Dream Team that was Bob Saget, John Stamos, and the Olsen Twins. It took Lori a while to get over John "Wild Stallion" Stamos, both on screen and off, but she returned to TV recently with a show she co-created, Summerland.

Lori was born in Queens, New York, but moved with her family to Oceanside, New York at a young age. She attended Oaks Public Elementary School #3. At the age of 12, she became a print model, and was seen in national print ads for Sears and Bradlees Weekly Flyers.

In 1979, Lori got a national TV ad, playing a cheerleader in a Tab commercial, and her career was underway. She next landed a part on the soap opera, The Edge of Night. After three-and-a-half years on the soap, she began trying out for work in feature films. While this didn't immediately pan out, she did land a part on the sitcom, Full House. Her role of Rebecca Donaldson is her most recognizable role to date. As Lori realized the hard way, once you work with Saget it's hard to get the stink off.

Following Full House, Lori landed a slew of small film parts, and television cameos. Notable amongst these were her appearances on Seinfeld, The Drew Carey Show, and in the film, In the Line of Duty: Blaze of Glory, with Bruce Campbell. Lori took a break from acting before returning to the small screen in 2004 with Summerland, a WB series she co-created. The show ran into 2005 before being cancelled. Lori is married to the man behind Mossimo clothing, so hopefully she can strategize her next entertainment move while relaxing in a crisp new set of his volleyball threads.

She can currently be seen in the CW network's revamped 90210.

In 2019 Loughlin and her husband Giannulli were among 50 individuals charged by the FBI and U.S. Attorney's Office for fraud- and bribery-related offenses on March 12, 2019, in a nationwide college entrance exam cheating scandal. The indictment against the couple alleged that they had paid $500,000 to the Key Worldwide Foundation, disguised as a donation, so that the admissions committee of University of Southern California (USC) would believe their two daughters would join the women's rowing team, although neither had trained in the sport nor had plans to do so. The following day, Loughlin and her husband surrendered to federal authorities in Los Angeles.

As a result, the Hallmark Channel terminated their business relationship with Loughlin on March 14, and edited out her previously recorded scenes from the yet un-aired season six of When Calls the Heart. On March 16, Netflix dropped her from Fuller House, and technology firm Hewlett-Packard announced it would remove Loughlin and her daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli from its advertising. Loughlin's daughters were able to remain enrolled at USC.

After first pleading not guilty, on May 22, 2020, Loughlin switched her not guilty plea to guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, and her husband pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and honest services wire and mail fraud. Sentencing took place on August 21, 2020. Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison while her husband was sentenced to five months. She served her two-month prison sentence at FCI Dublin in Northern California from October 30, 2020 to December 28, 2020, when given a two-year supervised release, which will expire in December 2022. In addition, she was fined $150,000 and ordered to complete 100 hours of community service upon her release.
