THE TRUMAN SHOW

LAURA LINNEY (Meryl) has created a series of memorable characters since making her motion picture starring debut in Paramount's hit jungle adventure "Congo."

A graduate of the Juilliard School, Linney received critical acclaim for her role as a tough prosecuting attorney in the suspense thriller "Primal Fear," in which she co-starred with Richard Gere and Edward Norton. She also starred opposite Clint Eastwood, Gene Hackman and Ed Harris in "Absolute Power" as Kate Whitney, the attorney daughter of a master thief (Eastwood). Linney's other feature credits include roles in "Lorenzo's Oil," "Dave," "Searching for Bobby Fischer" and "A Simple Twist of Fate."

Linney's television appearances include the leading role of Mary Ann Singleton in PBS's "Tales of the City." In June, Linney will reprise her role as Mary Ann Singleton in Showtime's "More Tales of the City." She also starred opposite Joanne Woodward in the Hallmark Hall of Fame presentation "Blindspot."

Linney, an accomplished theatre actress, will next be seen in April, starring on Broadway in Gerald Gutierrez's "Honour." She won a Theatre World Award and a Drama Desk nomination for her performance in "Sight Unseen." Her theatre credits also include roles in the Broadway presentations of "Six Degrees of Separation," "The Seagull" and "Hedda Gabler," the latter earning her a 1994 Calloway Award. Last year, she returned to Broadway, starring in Phillip Barry's "Holiday," a comedy of manners, opposite Tony Goldwyn and she also starred in John Guare's "Landscape of the Body" at the Yale Repertory Theatre.
