What Has AnnaLynne McCord Been Up To?
AnnaLynne McCord had always her eyes on the prize when it came to pursuing acting. The star was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia but moved to New York City when she was only 15 years old!
After her move to the Big Apple, McCord set her sights on none other than Los Angeles where she would land a number of smaller roles on shows such as Greek, Ugly Betty, and The O.C.
Well, in 2007 the actress got her big break appearing on two hit shows simultaneously, Nip/Tuck, and American Heiress before getting her big break on the reboot CW series, 90210 playing the iconic character, Naomi Clark.
Despite the show coming to a sudden end, Naomi continued to have a successful on-screen career landing the role of Heather on the show, Dallas. In 2016, AnnaLynne scored two lead roles on both Secrets And Lies, and The Night Shift.

The actress had no reservations when it came to sharing the news, as she wanted to break the stigma attached to mental health.
“The way this is talked about is there’s so much shame. I am absolutely uninterested in shame,” the 33-year-old actress said. “There is nothing about my journey that I invite shame into anymore,” she said.
AnnaLynne revealed that she was in such a dark place that she didn’t want to be alive anymore, however, the star is singing a much different tune. “And now I wake up every day and I say thank you I’m alive again,” and we couldn’t be happier!
