Robin Kelly portrays Laurie Forman, Eric's college
drop-out sister who constantly torments him and his
friends on That '70s Show. There is nothing in Lisa
Robin Kelly's petite figure that reveals the strength
and personality inside. The young actress craves empowering
roles, and her new co-starring role on FOX's THAT
'70s SHOW allows Lisa the freedom to be as sassy as
she can be. The
24-year-old actress says she enjoys the energy and
gratification of working in front of a live audience.

Lisa is no stranger to working with seasoned actors,
she came face to face with professional idol, James

Ed Begley Jr. She also found gratification in the
challenge of portraying a drug-addicted stripper in

got the bug at age seven," says Lisa, and she
went on to star in various productions in her hometown
of Toledo, Ohio. After auditioning for the Chicago
Academy of the Arts, Lisa and her mother relocated
to Chicago where she was anxious to take on the world
of acting and theater. Her experiences while at the
performing arts high school only made her more hungry
to begin a professional career as an actor. "The
escapism of acting was very appealing to me,"
says Lisa. Upon graduation with emphasis in opera
and theater she immediately found representation in
Chicago but had her sights set on bigger seas and
soon after decided to make the move to California.
With a love for performing in musicals and studying
dance, she maintains ambitions of Broadway, and with
her traditional training in live stage acting and
voice, the move from the silver screen to the Broadway
stage may not be that far from Lisa's future. During
her time off Lisa enjoys practicing yoga and entertaining
her neighbors with her talents in karaoke. She also
volunteers her time with philanthropic organizations
that touch her heart such as Hollygrove, the Sierra
Club, and PETA.
