      Martha Plimpton

      Martha Plimpton

      Highest Rated: 100% Honey Bee (2018)

      Lowest Rated: 25% Josh and S.A.M. (1993)

      Birthday: Nov 16, 1970

      Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

      Actress Martha Plimpton rose from a brief tenure as a teen star to become one of the most respected stage actresses on the New York theater scene, as well as a versatile character performer in films and on television. The daughter of actor Keith Carradine, she made her theater debut at age nine before vaulting to film a few years later; though she was cemented in the minds of many young viewers for her sassy turn in "The Goonies" (1985), she quickly developed into a cagey, complex supporting actress with critically acclaimed turns in "Another Woman" (1988), "Running on Empty" (1988) and "I Shot Andy Warhol" (1996). In the late 1990s, she devoted her attention to plays and musicals, earning several Tony nominations and the respect of the formidable theater community. Over the next decade, Plimpton appeared regularly as a guest star on dozens of television series before joining the cast of the family sitcom "Raising Hope" (Fox, 2010-14). As Virginia Chance, mother of a twenty-something son raising a child of his own, Plimpton showcased her spiky blend of heart, humor and brittle charm that had long made her a favorite with audiences of all ages. She followed that up with another endearingly complex matriarch, conservative Catholic Eileen O'Neal on "The Real O'Neals" (ABC 2016- ).
