Tracey Renee Needham (born March 28, 1967) is an American actress who has acted primarily in television roles such as Paige Thatcher on Life Goes On series' second to fourth seasons (1990–1993), Lieutenant Junior Grade (LTJG) Meg Austin on the first season of JAG (1995–1996), and as Inspector Candace DeLorenzo on The Division (2001-2003).
In 1975, when Needham was 8 years old, her parents moved to Denver, Colorado, and her father's work dictated the family move back and forth between the two cities. She attended both Cherry Creek High School and Plano Senior High School.
1980, in the 8th grade, Needham reached her adult height (she stands 5 ft 11 in (1.80 m)). Her high-school teacher said she was too tall to appear on stage, instead working on the technical crew. After her high-school graduation, Needham traveled throughout Europe and Australia.
1988, Needham went to Los Angeles to study acting and audition for roles. She made her TV acting debut on Jake and the Fatman. After acting classes, she landed the role of Paige Thatcher, the big sister, on Life Goes On, beginning in the series' second season.
While growing up, she was always jumping into football games, wanting to be treated equally by the males and not have boys take it easy on her. She re-called her past to play the strong feminine LTJG Meg Austin in the first season of JAG. Needham portrayed a Navy judge advocate and a computer-weapons expert.
