NOTD Scream Queen: Diora Baird "Lily"

Diora Baird (born April 6, 1983) is an American actress and former model for Guess? who has appeared in films such as Wedding Crashers (2005) and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006). She plays "Lily" in the remake of Night of the Demons, which is slated for a DVD Release on October 31, 2010.

In 2004, Baird also started earning acting roles, such as a guest appearance on the Drew Carey Show and in the low-budget film Brain Blockers. Her breakthrough appearance in a major film was in Wedding Crashers in 2005, which she followed up with roles in Accepted and Hot Tamale. In 2006, she appeared in four films, most notably a major role in the horror prequel The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. In 2009, Baird portrayed an Orion starfleet officer in Star Trek directed by J. J. Abrams but was cut from the final version of the film. However she can be seen in the deleted scenes of the home video release.

Baird had featured photo spreads in several magazines including Playboy, FHM, Stuff, Maxim (in which she was ranked #76 on the Maxim magazine Hot 100 of 2007 list and #64 on the Maxim magazine Hot 100 of 2008 list), Toro and Esquire (UK). One advantage in her modeling career seems to be her large natural breasts, which measure 32DD. She lent her voice to the Scarface video game as one of Tony Montana's possible girlfriends.

Baird has also guest-starred in episodes of Big Day, Shark, The Loop, and Two and a Half Men (the 2009 episode "She'll Still Be Dead At Halftime"). She is to star in the movie 30 Days of Night: Dark Days, directed by Ben Ketai, who is produced from Columbia Pictures and Ghost House Pictures Baird stars also in the FEARnet webseries Tea Party Massacre, which is part of the series Women in Horror Month. She also starred in the 2009 comedy Stan Helsing.
