American actress L. Scott Caldwell is best known for her role on the mystery series "Lost." A native of Chicago, Caldwell got her first taste of acting in her high school's drama club and later graduated from Loyola University with a degree in theater arts and communications. Her first screen credit was in the mystery feature "Without a Trace" in 1983. She made appearances on "The Cosby Show" and "L.A. Law" in the late '80s but also appeared on Broadway, winning a Tony Award for her performance in August Wilson's "Joe Turner's Come and Gone" in 1988. The award did not immediately pay dividends in her screen career, and for the next few years she continued a string of small TV and film roles. She had supporting parts in the 1993 action film "Extreme Justice" and the Harrison Ford adventure "The Fugitive," as well as a small role in the 1996 Sandra Bullock action film "The Net." In the 2000s she began to receive more regular TV work, landing a recurring role on the courtroom dramedy "Queens Supreme" and appearing several times on the drama "Judging Amy." In 2004 she began her role on the smash hit "Lost" and was a supporting cast member throughout the series. During its run she costarred in the football drama "Gridiron Gang," and in 2008 started a recurring role on the family show "The Secret Life of the American Teenager."
