Lang’s first credited role was in the 1979 movie Skatetown, U.S.A., with Patrick Swayze, which led to countless roles on television throughout the ‘80s in primetime TV shows like HAPPY DAYS, THE FALL GUY, and RIPTIDE. In 1985, the actress appeared in three music videos: “There’s No Way” by Alabama, and “Getcha Back” and “It’s Gettin’ Late” by The Beach Boys.
She joined B&B for its premiere in 1987 and has starred as the irrepressible Brooke Logan ever since. In fact, she and John McCook (Eric) are the only two remaining cast members who have been with the soap for its entire run. Lang has also played Brooke on B&B’s sister soap, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS, on a few occasions, and in 2016, played herself on an episode of the Australian soap opera NEIGHBOURS. (Which is where B&B castmate Ashleigh Brewer (ex-Ivy) became a big star Down Under!)
During her decades in daytime, Lang has earned two Daytime Emmy Award nominations for her performances, once in the supporting category and the other in lead. She did share in a Daytime Emmy win in 2017 as one of the producers of the web soap VENICE: THE SERIES when it won Outstanding New Approaches — Drama Series.
