You may remember Traylor Howard for her role in “Monk” but this thespian continues to excel even after vanishing from the screen for a while now. What is she up to these days, here is everything you need to know about her.
Traylor Howard: Age
Traylor Howard was born on June 14, 1966, in Orlando, Florida, to Peggy E and Robert M. Howard, Jr. president of the Howard Fertilizer and Chemical Company. There is no information concerning her siblings or if she has any.
Traylor’s interest in the entertainment industry started when she was little as she appeared in the commercial for Juicy Fruit chewing gum. Her parents must have viewed her in a lab coat mixing chemicals but the wheels of fortune turned her attention to the movie world.
Traylor attended Lake Highland Preparatory School in Orlando and after her graduation, she moved to Florida State University where she bagged a degree in communications and advertising. She worked in the advertising sector for a while to and it was during the period of her regular 9-5 job that she landed an opportunity to appear in an AT&T commercial for the ‘You Will’ series. The role felt like a homecoming for something she loves to do. Traylor then moved to Los Angeles to pursue an acting career.

Traylor Howard: Career
Although she had a passion for the screen job, after a couple of roles on TV she dropped her acting gloves and disappeared. However, the films she has starred in such as the “Son of the Mask” as Tonya Avery would continue to remain evergreen in the minds of many who watched her during her active days. And not just film alone. Traylor played the main role in the comedy-drama television series “Monk” as Natalie Teeger in up to 87 episodes of the series, her longest in a TV show.
For her role in the film, she won a Gracie Allen Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress. “Monk” is primarily a police procedural series but also exhibits comic and dramatic tones in its exploration of the main characters’ personal lives.
She played the role of Alice O’Connor in the CBS sitcom “Bram & Alice”. The series centered on Bram Shepard, who won a Pulitzer Prize twenty years earlier for writing the best-selling novel Matthew Kent, and Alice O’Connor, who came to his door one day and informed him that she was his daughter, the result of a one-night stand he had when he was a guest lecturer at Vassar College.
She appeared in the Foo Fighters’ music video “Breakout” and also appeared in an episode of “The West Wing”.
Traylor has been married three times before she finally found love. It is understandable that marriages don’t last forever and she is not the only actress who has tested this pool infested pond of divorce more than two once.
She was previously married to actor Cameron Hall on February 2, 1991. The marriage ended in divorce on March 12, 1993; the couple had no children. Her second marriage was to actor Christian Navarro on April 26, 2003, which ended in divorce in 2006. They also had no children
