Born into the family business in Toronto, Lori Alter worked initially as the lead singer in her father's band, a popular Canadian combo called The Murray Alter Orchestra, before getting into acting. Some of her earlier appearances were on Kung Fu: The Legend Continues and the movie National Lampoon's Senior Trip (1995). But it was on the successful Canadian TV series Power Play that her love of acting and singing combined to make her a national treasure. It was her exposure on the Showtime series Leap Years, however, that made her a skinternational treasure. That's her only nudity to date, but the hard-working Canuck is likely to get her audience hard whacking again soon.
