Second daughter of Judy Garland, who got her start singing in Vegas clubs and on variety shows. Always in her sister Liza Minnelli's shadow, she headed to Broadway in the early 1970s where she appeared in Promises Promises, They're Playing Our Song, Extremities, and many other touring companies of hit musicals. In 1982, Lorna appeared in Grease 2, the sequel to Grease, but the movie bombed. Her second attempt at a film career, Where the Boys Are '84 failed to get her any more roles.
