      Laura Linney

      Laura Linney

      Highest Rated: 95% Dave (1993)

      Lowest Rated: Not Available

      Birthday: Feb 5, 1964

      Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

      An award-winning stage actress who grew up around New York theaters, Laura Linney's distinctive artistry immediately stood out from the Hollywood crowd when she began hitting film screens in the 1990s. Her multi-layered portrayal of hired actress-wife to unwitting husband Jim Carrey in "The Truman Show" (1998) was a breakout supporting role. Only two years later, she topped critics' year-end lists and earned an Academy Award nomination for her lead in the refreshingly realistic family portrait, "You Can Count on Me" (2000). While residing comfortably under the radar of general public recognition, Linney's rare qualities were coveted by quality filmmakers, and the actress shone in Clint Eastwood's "Mystic River" (2004), Noah Baumbach's "The Squid and the Whale" (2005), and was Oscar-nominated as well for "Kinsey" (2004) and "The Savages" (2007). A multiple Emmy winner and star of the successful "John Adams" (HBO, 2008) miniseries, Linney returned to television to headline her own show, "The Big C" (Showtime, 2010-13) opposite Oliver Platt, and reunited with Eastwood for a key supporting role in "Sully" (2016), a biopic starring Tom Hanks as instantly famous airline pilot Captain Chesley Sullenberger. On stage, film or television, there seemed no limit to the range of this classically-trained chameleon.
