Lesley Ann Down (born March 17, 1954 in London) is a British actress.
At the age of ten, Down began modeling and acting in her native Britain. She won several beauty pageants and at the age of 15, she was voted Britain's Most Beautiful Teenager. From 1973 to 1975, Down portrayed Georgina Worsley on the popular British series Upstairs, Downstairs. She went on to star in such films as The Pink Panther Strikes Again, A Little Night Music, and Hanover Street. Down is also well-known for her roles in television movies and miniseries, including North and South and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Down portrayed Olivia Richards on the NBC soap opera Sunset Beach from the show's debut in January 1997 until the show's cancellation in December 1999. Her character's name was originally to be Sheila but she was concerned that, because the name had a different meaning in Australian slang, they changed it.
She has played Jacqueline Payne Marone on The Bold and the Beautiful since March 2003. In December 2005, Down began very heated contract talks with the serial, refusing to take a substantial pay cut. She has since renewed her contract with the series for another three years.
Married to third husband cinematographer Don E. FauntLeRoy since 1985, Down is the mother to two sons, Jack and George-Edward, and two stepdaughters, Season and Juliana.
