Megan Marie Ward was born on September 24, 1969 in LA, California, USA. She was the youngest of four siblings, and her parents were both professional actors and acting coaches. When Ward was four years old, the family moved to Honolulu, Hawaii. At the age of nine, she began doing commercials for local department stores. In her early teens, she went to Japan for modeling jobs and stayed for several years. Having previously learned to speak the language from her schooling in Hawaii, she landed a job hosting a Japanese television show, "Science Q," a science TV program broadcast in NHK from 1988 to February 1989. She graduated from Kaiser High School, Hawaii in 1988.
When Megan was nine, her mother was working at a modelling agency, and that's how Megan started modelling. In the mid-1980's, Japan was a lucrative market for many Western models, and Megan had a fresh, youthful look that landed her one assignment after another. Her first acting job was a part in a commercial which never aired because the product never came out. However, because of this job she got the SAG card, which she needed. Work in commercials soon led to a string of parts in mostly forgettable low-budget films and her career path might be characterized as more that of a long-distant runner than a sprinter. Rather than landing a breakthrough role at the outset, she slogged her way through the trenches of low-budget and direct-to-video releases. Her first film role was in the 1990 Sci-Fi feature film "Crash And Burn." Megan's next two feature films were the Sci-Fi adventures "Trancers II" (1991) and "Trancers III" (1992) playing Alice Stillwell opposite Tim Thomerson. Then followed "Amityville 1992: It's About Time" (1992).
If the projects themselves were undistinguished, Megan herself was steadily building both her craft and her confidence, and each performance was consistently better than the one preceding it. "I feel like I paid my dues," Megan said, reflecting unapologetically on her resume. "I didn't get lucky like that, where the first thing I did was huge. I did a bunch of B-movies. In "Encino Man" (1992), renamed "Californian Man" outside the U.S.A., a hit comedy starring Pauly Shore and Sean Astin as two high-school nobodies who become the coolest dudes on campus when they discover a frozen caveman played by Brendan Fraser while digging a hole for a swimming pool, Megan played Robin Sweeney, the most happening girl in school. However, she had a lot of storyline cut out because Pauly Shore and Brendan Fraser tested higher with preview audiences.
Marriage, Affairs and Divorce

She is 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 52 kg. She is now 49 years of age. She is an American actress.
