Terri Conn Loves Out Loud

Theresa Celeste Conn’s family moved often during her childhood, but eventually settled in Albuquerque, NM. Having forsaken acting for cheerleading in high school, Terri was in her junior year as a communications major at University of San Diego when she went to Florence, Italy — and had an epiphany. Realizing that she really wanted to be an actress, Ms Conn made a deal with her parents: She would move to Los Angeles for the summer to pursue her dream, but would return to finish her senior year. Soon after, she landed a part on the syndicated teen show Breaker High, then auditioned for As the World Turns , conn truly blossomed (along with Katie) when her scheming, high-strung character was paired with Paul Leyden's Simon. Terri was nominated for a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actress in 2001 and for Outstanding Supporting Actress at the Soap Opera Digest Awards that same year. It is no surprise that this beautiful and talented young woman found herself on One Life to Live very soon after As the World Turns ended. As of March 2011 she gets to work with her real life love Austin Peck. It is a great honor to have Ms. Conn as a celebrity greeter on May 11, 2011 at Prohibition.
