Laurette Spang was born in Buffalo, New York but raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She grew up as the middle child of a chemist father and housewife mother. She has an older brother, Richard and a younger sister, Marilyn.

She had a funny dreamy sort of journey into showbiz. She wrote letters to actors constantly, and was a huge fan of Dark Shadows. Laurette went to NYC at age 16 with her dad, who was there on business, and went to the stage door of Dark Shadows.

Laurette walked right in, with the guard smiling at her in her baby blue coat and bow in her hair (yes, a bow). The guard took her upstairs to the set where she met Kathryn Leigh Scott (Laurette answered Kathryn's fan mail for her through high school).

On a second trip to NYC during her Senior year, she again visited the set where Kathryn set up an audition for her at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Laurette also auditioned to be an apprentice at the Williamstown Summer theatre the summer before that.

Spotted by a Universal talent scout, she signed a contract and arrived in Hollywood in 1972. She guest starred in 9 shows her first season there and did 4 television movies. Battlestar Galactica came along after she'd left the contract system, and the rest, as they say, is history.
