Tara Reid stars in "Sharknado 2: The Second One" on Syfy as April Wexler, reprising the role from the original movie "Sharknado."

Best known for her role in the 1999 hit comedy "American Pie" and its sequels "American Pie 2" and "American Reunion," actress Tara Reid is famous for playing the infamous blonde vixen. Her first major film role came in 1998, playing Bunny Lebowski, opposite Jeff Bridges, in "The Big Lebowski." She then appeared in the teen horror film "Urban Legend," also released in 1998.

Raised in Wyckoff, New Jersey, with her three siblings, Reid began her acting career at the tender age of six. After showing an exceptional gift for acting, she was enrolled by her parents in the Professional Children's School in New York City.

Reid began her career by appearing in many television commercials for products such as Jell-O, McDonald's and Crayola. In 1995, she broke into television drama, landing a recurring role as Ashley on the daytime soap opera "Days of Our Lives."

In 1999, Reid appeared in "Cruel Intentions." The same year, "American Pie" hit the big screen, which catapulted her career to the next level. In 2000, she starred in director Robert Altman's "Dr. T & the Women," opposite Richard Gere, Helen Hunt, Laura Dern and Liv Tyler. Reid also appeared in "Just Visiting" with Christina Applegate, Jean Reno and Christian Clavier. In 2001, Reid starred in "Josie and the Pussycats" and the blockbuster hit "American Pie 2." In 2002, she starred in National Lampoon's "Van Wilder," opposite Ryan Reynolds, playing his love interest. Three years later, Reid starred in "My Boss's Daughter," opposite Ashton Kutcher. From 2003 to 2005, she guest-starred in the NBC hit comedy "Scrubs." In 2007, she starred in the comedy "If I Had Known I Was a Genius" with Whoopi Goldberg and Sharon Stone.

In 2008, Reid launched her clothing line, Mantra. Her designs are made with a goal in mind — to have women feel super sexy and comfortable — and each piece contains a specially beaded piece always containing the eye of protection.

Reid currently resides in Los Angeles.
