LISA GAY HAMILTON plays Frank Beachum's devoted wife and the mother of his young daughter. Her sincerity and fundamental decency underscore Everett's urgency in saving the condemned man he has come to interview.

Hamilton's film credits include "Palookaville" and "Drunks," Quentin Tarantino's "Jackie Brown" and, most recently, the critically acclaimed "Beloved," in which she portrayed young Sethe. She is currently a series regular on the television drama "The Practice," created by David E. Kelley. She has also been seen on "Law & Order" and "Homicide: Life on the Streets."

A graduate of the Juilliard School's drama division, Hamilton's extensive theater credits include the New York Shakespeare Festival production of "Measure for Measure" opposite Kevin Kline and Andre Braugher, and the original Broadway production of August Wilson's "The Piano Lesson."

In 1997, Hamilton earned an Ovation nomination for Best Actress for her portrayal of Veronica in Athol Fugard's play, "Valley Song," at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. Her performance previously earned her an Obie Award, the Clarence Derwent Award and a Drama Desk Award nomination.

Recently, Hamilton was invited to attend the prestigious Filmmakers and Screenwriters Lab at the Sundance Institute.
