SALLY FIELD (Congresswoman Rudd) is a two-time Academy Award® winner for her performances in Places in the Heart and Norma Rae. She received an Emmy Award for her title role as a young woman with multiple personalities in the four-hour television film Sybil, with Joanne Woodward. Appearing on the award-winning series E.R. as a woman suffering from bipolar disorder, Field earned critical acclaim and an Emmy award in 2001. In the fall of 2002, Field also dazzled theater audiences on Broadway in Edward Albee's Who Is Sylvia?. 

In fall of 2000, Field made her feature film directorial debut with Beautiful, starring Minnie Driver as a woman who aspires to become Miss America. Field made her directorial debut in December 1996 with The Christmas Tree, a two-hour ABC telefilm starring Julie Harris. She also served as executive producer and shared writing credit on this project based on Julie Salamon's novel of the same name. She also directed an episode of Tom Hanks' epic miniseries From the Earth to the Moon for HBO. Her episode, titled The Original Wives Club, dealt with the experiences of astronauts' wives. 

Field's film credits include An Eye for an Eye, directed by John Schlesinger, and the hugely successful films Forrest Gump and Mrs. Doubtfire. Her other feature film credits include Soapdish, Not Without My Daughter, Steel Magnolias, Punchline, Murphy's Romance (the latter two produced by Field's production company, Fogwood Films), Absence of Malice, The End, Hooper, Heroes, and Smokey and the Bandit parts one and two. Her first major film was Stay Hungry starring Jeff Bridges and Arnold Schwarzenegger. 

Her television credits are equally expansive, including the role of Aunt Betsey in TNT's adaptation of Charles Dickens's classic David Copperfield and Showtime's A Cooler Climate. Field earned another Emmy nomination for her role in that film. Prior to that, her appearance in A Woman of Independent Means, a six-hour miniseries, marked her return to television – not only as an actor, but also as co-producer – after a twenty-year absence. Field earned Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for the role. 

Born in Pasadena, CA, and raised in a show business family, Field was enrolled in acting classes at Columbia Pictures when she was selected, among 150 finalists, to star in the television series Gidget. She went on to star in The Flying Nun and The Girl with Something Extra.
