Laurette married John McCook on February 16, 1980, and in 1984 she retired from acting.
More DetailsHide DetailsShe had three children with McCook: Jake, Rebecca and Molly. Jake became a film editor and filmmaker, Becky became an assistant kindergarten teacher, and Molly is an actress/singer who has appeared on such shows as Monk, 10 Things I Hate about You, and Glee.
She was spotted by a Universal Studios talent agent in 1972, where she signed a 7 year contract.
More DetailsHide DetailsThe contract led to guest starring roles in Emergency! Adam-12 (Episode: Venice Division), The Streets of San Francisco, Happy Days, Chase, Isis, Charlie's Angels, and Lou Grant. This also led to television movies, including Short Walk to Daylight, Runaway! Sarah T. - Portrait of a Teenage Alcoholic, and "The Day the Bubble Burst." She also co starred with Jean Peters, William Windom, and Joseph Bottoms in a production of "Winesburg, Ohio" on KCET's Hollywood Television Theatre.
After leaving the contract system, she was cast as Cassiopeia in the Battlestar Galactica TV movie, "Saga of a Star World." An initial draft would have led to her being eaten by the Ovions; however, this death was averted and the network kept her on in a regular role but with a change of profession. Standards and Practices would no longer allow her to be a "socialator" (prostitute) so they switched her character to a medtech in the series.
Following graduation in 1969, Laurette returned to Michigan where she attended Adrian College, living dorm life on a small campus, but not far from her family in Ann Arbor.
