Early life and education Born in Los Angeles and raised in Toronto, Holden holds dual citizenship in both the U.S. and Canada.

She received her first film role when she was a young child. While on the set visiting her step-father, director Michael Anderson, a child actress hired to play Rock Hudson's daughter in The Martian Chronicles never made it and Laurie filled in. "All of a sudden, I'm Rock Hudson's daughter."As a teenager, she won The Look of the Year modeling contest in Toronto and was given a minor role as a babysitter in Anderson's comedy Separate Vacations (1986). After graduating from the Bishop Strachan School, she attended McGill University, where she studied economics and political science. She transferred to University of California, Los Angeles and received a degree in theater and film in 1993. At UCLA, she was a member of the National Honor Society and received the prestigious Natalie Wood Acting Award. She pursued a Master of Human Rights degree at Columbia University. Career Early in her career, Holden made a name for herself by costarring opposite Burt Reynolds in Physical Evidence (1989), Vanessa Redgrave in Young Catherine (1991), and William Shatner in the TV Movie TekWar: TekLab (1994). She also played Mabel Dunham in the TV Movie The Pathfinder (1996) (based on the novel of James Fenimore Cooper). Onstage, she starred in Time and the Conways, written by J. B.

After making various guest appearances on Due South, Murder, She Wrote, and Poltergeist: The Legacy (when she played a dual role), Holden found some success playing a memorable recurring role on the seminal sci-fi series The X-Files: Marita Covarrubias, a mysterious government worker who becomes an informant to Special Agent Fox Mulder, from seasons four through the final one (1996–2002).
