A PERFECT MURDER
GWYNETH PALTROW (Emily Bradford Taylor) first came to public
and critical attention with her performance opposite Meg Ryan
and Dennis Quaid in "Flesh and Bone." Since then, she
has appeared in such motion pictures as David Fincher's hit thriller
"Seven," Doug McGrath's film adaptation of the Jane
Austen classic "Emma" and the independent feature "Hard
Eight." This Winter she will be seen starring in "Sliding
Doors"; "Great Expectations," with Ethan Hawke,
Robert De Niro and Anne Bancroft; and opposite Jessica Lange in
Paltrow's additional film credits include "The Pallbearer"
with David Schwimmer and Barbara Hershey; "Moonlight and
Valentino" opposite Whoopi Goldberg, Kathleen Turner and
Elizabeth Perkins; the Merchant/Ivory production "Jefferson
in Paris" opposite Nick Nolte; "Malice"; and "Mrs.
Parker and the Vicious Circle."
Born in Los Angeles, Paltrow is the daughter of Bruce Paltrow,
a highly-successful television producer ("St. Elsewhere,"
"The White Shadow"), and the award-winning actress Blythe
Danner. She began to pursue a career in acting after appearing
onstage at the Williamstown Theater in her late teens.
Paltrow's first film audition resulted in an offer for a supporting
role in the feature film "Shout" with John Travolta.
A chance meeting with Steven Spielberg led the director to ask
her to play Young Wendy in "Hook." Soon after, she accepted
a role in the mini-series "Cruel Doubt" in which, ironically,
Blythe Danner would later be cast in the role of her mother.
When Paltrow was asked to audition for "Flesh and Bone"
she was in rehearsals for "The Sweet By and By" at Williamstown
Theater. She was cast in the role of Ginnie, a smooth-talking
grifter, which brought Paltrow rave reviews.
