THE OTHER SISTER
JULIETTE LEWIS (Carla
Tate) was born and raised in Southern California. Her father,
actor Geoffrey Lewis, and graphic-artist mother supported her
choice for independence at the age of 15. The early family-supported
emancipation allowed Lewis to bypass any legal limitations that
stood in her way of working.
Her first leading role was at age 12 in Showtime's miniseries
"Homefires" and she went on to star in several motion
pictures, including "Christmas Vacation" with Chevy
Chase and "Crooked Hearts" with Jennifer Jason Leigh.
Lewis also had a recurring role in the critically acclaimed television
series "The Wonder Years." The NBC movie-of-the-week
"Too Young To Die?" soon followed.
In 1991, Lewis starred in Martin Scorsese's remake of the classic
thriller "Cape Fear," co-starring Robert De Niro, Nick
Nolte and Jessica Lange. Lewis was nominated for both an Academy
Award and a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress.
Following "Cape Fear," Lewis starred opposite Woody
Allen in "Husbands and Wives," playing an educated college
student with a penchant for older men. Her additional film credits
include "That Night" with Leonardo DiCaprio, "Kalifornia"
with Brad Pitt, "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" with
lohnny Depp, "Romeo Is Bleeding" with Gary Oldman, and
Oliver Stone's 'Natural Born Killers" with Woody Harrelson
and Tommy Lee Jones, "Mixed Nuts" opposite Steve Martin,
'Strange Days" and "From Dusk Till Dawn" with George
Clooney and opposite Shirley MacLaine in "The Evening Star."
