Early life and family
Brooke Langton, of Swedish-American descent, was born on November 27, 1970, in an on-site hospital in a copper mine in an Arizona town. Her father Jackson Langton, a chief geologist, and her mother, a surgical nurse, raised her in Illinois before moving to Texas, and she also lived for a short period in Portland, Oregon. Her father came from a family of geologists and prospectors from mining companies. Her paternal grandfather was Head Prospector for oil tycoon HL Hunt, while her father became Chief Geologist for Phelps Dodge, and later Vice President of Superior Oil in Indianapolis.
On her mother’s side, she had a World War II bomber pilot for a grandfather, and a Swedish immigrant farmer for a grandmother who settled in Minnesota. She also has an aunt who was a screenwriter.
Brooke’s family kept moving as she grew up, so she attended Herscher High School in Herscher, Illinois, but graduated from LD Bell High School in Tarrant County, Texas. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in marine biology from San Diego State University in 1992.
After college, Brooke moved to Los Angeles to pursue her love of acting and make it her full-time profession.
She attended training programs at The Second City, an improv comedy company that offers training classes and was home to successful actors and comedians such as Steve Carell, Tina Fey, Bill Murray and Stephen Colbert.
In 1993, she began taking small roles on several television shows, such as the hit teen drama series “Beverly Hills 90210” with Jason Priestly and Shannen Doherty, and the “Freshman Dorm” with Paige French and Robyn Lively. She also appeared in several episodes of “Baywatch,” the most-watched TV series about lifeguards in Los Angeles in the 1990s starring David Hasselhoff.
Her film debut came with an unusual role of a drug addict in the 1994 film “Terminal Velocity” starring Charlie Sheen and Nastassja Kinski. It was followed by “Extreme,” an ABC drama series that got its most sought-after timeslot, which happened to be just after the Super Bowl coverage. She was included in the regular cast of the drama series starring James Brolin, but unfortunately it was canceled after airing seven episodes and the remaining six episodes were not aired – the network struggled to get a solid viewership.
Over the next two years, she continued to make guest appearances in several hit TV series, honing her talent and reaching mainstream television audiences.
She was featured in “Chicago Hope” with Mandy Pantinkin and Adam Arkin and “Party of Five” with Matthew Fox and Scott Wolfe both in 1995, and “Sliders” with John-Rhys Davies and Jerry O’Connell in 1996.
A year later, her biggest break came through the TV show ‘Melrose Place’. She joined the hit drama series as a recurring guest in Season 4, and was elevated to the regular cast the following season, playing the role of Samantha Reilly until the seventh episode of the final season. The show ran for seven seasons, but she only appeared in 68 of the 226 episodes.
After she left Melrose Place, she was tapped to star in the TV adaptation of Sandra Bullock’s blockbuster, “The Net.” It ran for one season with 22 episodes, but was canceled due to low ratings.
Brooke also started accepting movie roles in between filming TV series. She was in “Swingers” in 1996 that catapulted the careers of Jon Favreau, Vince Vaughn and Heather Graham to fame; co-starred with Djimon Hounsou in “The Small Hours” in 1997; and participated in the comedy drama film “Reach the Rock” produced by John Hughes in 1998.
Her biggest film role was in 2000 in “The Replacements”, in which she co-starred with Gene Hackman and Keanu Reeves. It was loosely based on a real-life National Football League (NFL) strike in 1987, when the Washington Redskins won three games without their regular football stars, then won Super Bowl XXII to end the football season.
Brooke took on more film roles from independent filmmakers, including “Partners” in 2005 with Jay Harrington, “Beautiful Dreamer” with Colin Egglesfield, and “Primeval” with Dominic Purcell in 2007.
She went back to doing TV series and had a… recurring role for two years in “Friday Nights Lights,” the TV adaptation of the 2004 film of the same name. It ran for five seasons before ending. A string of guest appearances followed on TV, in the long-running drama series ‘The Closer’, ‘Supernatural’ and ‘Bones’, in which she played the mother of the lead character, Temperance ‘Bones’ Brennan, played by Emily Deschanel. She also had a recurring role as Lt. Maddie Rawlings in the action-drama series “The Last Ship”, which aired on TNT in 2018.
In between filming TV series, Brooke took part in a Swedish reality TV game show, “Allt för Sverige” in 2015, as one of the contestants in which they try to trace a person’s ancestors; she discovered that she is related to the Swedish film actor, Adolf Jhar.
Her last TV appearance was in an episode of the TV thriller series ‘The Passage’ in 2019.
Brooke is currently single and she is not known to be engaged. She is quite private and it shocked everyone when it was revealed to the public that she has a son called Zane. She brought the little boy to the 2nd Annual Kidstock Music and Art Festival in 2008.
No one knows who the father is, because there was no news of a pregnancy.
She was in a public relationship before, which was with David Chokachi from 1996 to 1998. There have been several rumors of boyfriends, including George Clooney, Tiger Woods, Andrew Shue and Karl Hagmier, but no one could confirm them.
Brooke is 1.67m tall, weighs about 53kg and her vital stats are 34-24-35. She has a slim and well-muscled body. She is white with dark brown hair and brown eyes. Her dress size is 4 and shoe size 9.
authoritative sources estimates that her net worth is approximately $2 million as of May 2020.
