Lynn-Holly Johnson (born December 13, 1958) is a professional ice skater and actress. After achieving some success as a figure skater in the mid 1970s, she began an acting career, including a Golden Globe-nominated role in 1978`s Ice Castles. Johnson, a professional figure skater, placed second at the novice level of the 1974 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. She gave up amateur competitive skating in 1977 to join the Ice Capades, and subsequently began an acting career, making her film debut in Ice Castles, where she played a figure skater. The film, a romantic drama co-starring Robby Benson, was a minor success in December 1978, grossing $18 million domestically. Johnson, who was described as "an appealing young woman who actually happens to be a good skater who can act" by film critic Roger Ebert, was nominated for a Golden Globe as "New Star of the Year in a Motion Picture - Female" for her performance in the film.
Johnson was subsequently cast in the lead role of the Disney horror drama, The Watcher in the Woods. The film received a limited release in April 1980, but was pulled from theatres and not given a wider release until October 1981. In 1996 Johnson quit acting to concentrate on her family; her last acting role at that time was a made-for-television film, Fugitive X: Innocent Target. Johnson currently lives in Newport Beach, California with her husband, architect Kelly Givens, and their two children. She has, for the most part, gone by the name Lynn-Holly Givens since her marriage. In the fall of 2007 she returned to acting in a community theater production of It`s a Wonderful Life.
