Who Is Taylor Cole and What Do We Know About Her Husband?

Taylor Cole is an American who has achieved a name as a model and actress. She started to model while she was still in high school and upon graduation, she went full-time in the runway career. Her career proved very successful as the gorgeous model got to travel to several countries across the world and also featured in the commercials of popular brands.

Taylor first caught the attention of Hollywood, playing the regular role of Erika Spalding on The defunct WB series, Summerland (2004-2005). The gorgeous Texas-born proved she was good on screen as she was on the runway with recurring roles in TV shows like The Event, CSI: Miami, and The Glades.

Some of Taylor Cole’s film credits include a lead role in April Fool’s Day and a starring role in the action film titled 12 Rounds, which also featured John Cena. In 2016, the talented actress was cast in the role of Sofya Voronova on the TV series The Originals, a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries.

Taylor Cole’s Early Life and How She Started Modeling

Born as Taylor Quinn Cole on the 29th of April 1984 in Arlington, Texas; the brunette was raised by her mother Deborah Quinn and her stepfather Shawn Christian who is also an actor. Both Cole and her stepfather featured in Summerland. She equally has a younger half-brother named Kameron Christian.

Taylor Cole had her high school education at Mirabeau B. Lamar High School in Arlington, TX. As a teenager, she proved to be a gifted athlete and was a very active volleyball player. She eventually got to travel the country as a member of the Junior Olympics volleyball squad, which unarguably gave her the initial exposure that would later launch her into success and fame.

As such, it’s hardly surprising that the highly gorgeous Taylor started modeling as a teenager. Upon graduation from high school in 2002, she relocated to New York to launch her career as a fulltime model. Her modeling career proved successful as she got to travel to several European countries for photoshoots.

As the story goes, she was only visiting her parents in Los Angeles when she came across the audition. After impressing the judges with her exquisite performance, she won the role. So, apart from her early exposure, her talent was also responsible for her career leverage and consequent fame.

After that breakthrough, the actress had recurring roles in series like Heroes: The Recruit, Heroes, Secret Girlfriend, CSI: Miami, and The Glades. In 2010, she landed the main role of Vicky Roberts on the adventure series, The Event, and served in that capacity till 2011. She also guest-starred on numerous popular series including Supernatural, Numb3rs, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Cold CaseNCIS, Two and a Half MenHawaii Five-0Castle, as well as Ballers.

Facts available to us indicate that Cole is currently unmarried. However, she has had a number of high profile relationships in the past. For instance, she is known to have dated Australian actor and comedian Ryan Kwanten. The relationship lasted from 2006 to 2007. Between 2008 and 2009, Cole also had a relationship with fellow actor, model, and singer, Josh Henderson.

Why People Think Kevin Simshauser Is Her Husband

Certain online sources have wrongly reported that Taylor Cole is married to Kevin Simshauser. For us, it is obvious they are mistaking her for the blonde Taylor Cole who acted in an MTV series titled Laguna Beach. The series followed the personal lives of certain students of Laguna Beach High School in California between 2004 and 2006.

The married Taylor Cole was a part of the show since she was a student of the school. The other Taylor attended Mirabeau B. Lamar High School in Arlington, Texas and was never a part of the Laguna Beach show.

In a nutshell, the Taylor we have been discussing throughout this piece isn’t married and Kevin Simshauser is definitely not her husband.
