      Amy Madigan

      Amy Madigan

      Highest Rated: 94% Gone Baby Gone (2007)

      Lowest Rated: 11% Virginia (2010)

      Birthday: Sep 11, 1950

      Birthplace: Chicago, Illinois, USA

      A powerful presence famous for her strong, unglamorous characters, Amy Madigan started off as a rock musician but made her big-screen debut as a pregnant teenage inmate in "Love Child" (1982) with Beau Bridges. She met and married Ed Harris when they played adulterous lovers in "Places in the Heart" (1984) and earned an Oscar nomination as Gene Hackman's angry daughter in "Twice in a Lifetime" (1985). Supporting roles as John Candy's girlfriend in "Uncle Buck" (1989), Holly Hunter's lawyer in "Roe vs. Wade" (NBC, 1989) and Kevin Costner's wife in the cinematic home run "Field of Dreams" (1989) cemented her onscreen legacy, but she would go on to notch roles in successes like "Pollock" (2000) and "Gone Baby Gone" (2007). In her later career, Madigan landed juicy television roles, including a murderous sister on "Carnivàle" (HBO, 2003-05), the title character's therapist on "Grey's Anatomy" (ABC, 2005- ) and the mother of the mysterious sci-fi superagent Olivia on "Fringe" (Fox, 2008-2013). Although she never became a major movie star, the multiple award-winning Amy Madigan consistently delivered accomplished, fiery performances.
