GLENN CLOSE had already established herself as an acclaimed stage actress when she made her motion picture debut in The World According To Garp (1982), garnering the first of three Academy Award nominations in as many films (the second for Lawrence Kasdan's The Big Chill in 1983, and the third for Barry Levinson's The Natural in 1984). She completed The Stone Boy opposite Robert Duvall and the title role in Paul Aaron's Maxie, before her tense portrayal of an attorney who grows to fear that her lover/client may be guilty of a hideous murder, in the hit thriller Jagged Edge (1985).

In 1987, Close raised the stakes on marital infidelity as the lover who would not be ignored in Adrian Lyne's Fatal Attraction (opposite Michael Douglas), followed by a tour de force performance as the devious Marquise who manipulates John Malkovich's Valmont in Stephen Frears' Dangerous Liaisons (1988). She received Best Actress Academy Award nominations for both roles. Among her numerous film performances, the gifted actress has portrayed a loyal wife desperate to have a child (Jonathan Kaplan's Immediate Family, opposite James Woods); the miserably rich Sunny von Bulow to Jeremy Irons' Claus in Barbet Schroeder's film adapation of the Nicholas Kazan novel, Reversal of Fortune; the doomed mother to the Prince of Denmark in Franco Zeffirelli's version of Hamlet (opposite Mel Gibson); a delightfully wicked Cruella DeVil in the live action 101 Dalmatians; a neurotic First Lady opposite Jack Nicholson's President in Tim Burton's Mars Attacks!; and a take-charge Vice President in Wolfgang Petersen's hit political thriller Air Force One (opposite Harrison Ford).

During her senior year at the College of William and Mary, Close was discovered by the then-Broadway house, the Phoenix Theatre, for a season of three plays: Love Fore Love, The Member of the Wedding and Rules of the Game. She then honed her talents at some of the country's most prestigious regional theatres in plays ranging from King Lear to Tennessee Williams' Rose Tattoo and A Streetcar Named Desire. In 1978, she returned to Broadway as the villainous Irene St. Clair in The Crucifer of Blood. Close would earn her first Tony nomination two years later for her portrayal of Charity Barnum in the musical hit Barnum. Her continuing stage career includes an Obie Award in 1982 for The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs; a Tony Award for performance as Jeremy Irons' actress wife in Tom Stoppard's play The Real Thing; a second Tony Award for Mike Nichols' production of the Ariel Dorfman drama Death and the Maiden; and a third Tony, the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Performance and a Drama-Logue Award for her riveting portrait of Norma Desmond in Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical stage adaptation of Sunset Boulevard.

Close has received numerous nominations for her both her performances and role as producer on the television productions Something About Mary (Emmy nomination as Best Actress); Sarah, Plain and Tall (Emmy and Golden Globe nominations as Best Actress, and an Emmy nomination for Best Made-For-Television Movie); Skylark (Emmy nomination as Best Actress); Serving in Silence (Emmy Award a
