A SIMPLE PLAN

BRIDGET FONDA (Sarah Mitchell) spent this past year as an abused wife, a conniving wife, a drugged-out surfer chick and a Marilyn Monroe impersonator in four very different films. She recently wrapped production on "The Break Up," as an abused wife pushed to the edge, and last Christmas Fonda was seen in "Jackie Brown," directed by Quentin Tarantino and starring Robert De Niro, Samuel L. Jackson and Michael Keaton. She has also completed the independent film "Finding Graceland," with Harvey Keitel and Jonathan Schaech. Currently she is filming "Lake Placid."

Deeply committed to acting and a self-avowed film fan who loves all movie genres, Fonda has purposely chosen roles in a wide variety of films.

After studying drama at New York University and the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute, as well as training with acting coach Harold Guskin, Fonda made her feature debut in Franc Roddam's segment of "Aria," a 1988 film composed of short works directed by ten filmmakers. Soon after, she starred in the comedy "Shag," with Phoebe Cates, and in 1989 she earned critical acclaim and a Golden Globe (TM) nomination as Best Supporting Actress for "Scandal," the story of the Profumo Affair which rocked the ruling party of Great Britain in the 1960s.

Fonda's other credits include "City Hall" with Al Pacino; "The Road To Welville" with Anthony Hopkins; "Strapless;" "The Godfather Part III;" "Doc Hollywood;" the psychological thriller "Single White Female;" and "Singles," in which she plays a college-educated, espresso-bar waitress who dreams of being an architect.

Her other credits include "Tough Magic," directed by Clare Peploe; "Touch," directed by Paul Schrader; "It Could Happen To You" with Nicolas Cage; "Little Buddha," directed by Bernardo Bertolucci; "Point of No Return" with Gabriel Byrne; and "Bodies, Rest and Motion" with Phoebe Cates, Tim Roth and Eric Stoltz.

On television, Fonda starred in PBS' critically acclaimed "Jacob Have I Loved" and an episode for HBO's "The Edge" series, in addition to her Emmy-nominated role in HBO's "In The Gloaming" directed by Christopher Reeves.
