      Amy Wright

      Amy Wright

      Highest Rated: 100% Heartland (1979)

      Lowest Rated: 11% Besotted (2001)

      Birthday: Apr 15, 1950

      Birthplace: Chicago, Illinois, USA

      This off-beat, gap-toothed blonde actress began her career in waifish, juvenile roles and later graduated to droll oddball character parts. Amy Wright was born and raised in the Midwest and worked as a schoolteacher before heading to NYC in the mid-1970s to pursue an acting career. Shortly after her arrival, Wright joined Rip Torn's Sanctuary Theater where she appeared in "Agnes and Joan." Roles in stock and regional theater followed before she garnered attention for her turn in a revival of Lanford Wilson's "The Rimers of Eldrich" in 1976. Two years later, she had the featured role of 13-year-old Shirley Tally in Wilson's acclaimed "Fifth of July," making her Broadway debut in the part in 1980. Wright continued to make stage appearances into the 90s, most notably as a devotee of psychologist Melanie Klein (played by Uta Hagen) in the Off-Broadway success "Mrs. Klein" (1995-96).
