      Glenne Headly

      Glenne Headly

      Highest Rated: 100% Bastard Out of Carolina (1996)

      Lowest Rated: 3% Getting Even With Dad (1994)

      Birthday: Mar 13, 1955

      Birthplace: New London, Connecticut, USA

      A versatile presence in features and television since the late 1980s, actress Glenne Headly moved from broad comedies like "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" (1989) to action epics like "Dick Tracy" (1990) and character-driven fare like "Mortal Thoughts" (1992) with effortless believability that netted her two Emmy nominations over the course of a multi-decade career on screen. An acclaimed stage actress in Chicago, she won praise and awards for her work on and off-Broadway before segueing into movies and television, with her big break coming in 1989 and 1990 with "Scoundrels," "Dick Tracy" and an Emmy nod for "Lonesome Dove" (CBS, 1989). Headly was best used in sympathetic character parts, where her soft voice and expressive features drew audiences' attention in projects like "Bastard Out of Carolina" (Showtime, 1996) and "On Golden Pond" (CBS, 2001). The birth of her son in 1997 slowed her output somewhat, but she remained a reliable presence in independent films and television, co-starring in films such as "The Namesake" (2006) and "Don Jon" (2013) and series such as the Nathan Lane sitcom "Encore! Encore!" (NBC 1998-99), which preserved her status as one of the most dependable character talents in the business. Glenne Headly died on June 8, 2017. She was 63.
