ASHLEY JUDD (Linda Porter), an eighth-generation Eastern Kentuckian, first proved her acting abilities in her debut feature film role as Ruby Lee Gissing in Victor Nunez' internationally acclaimed Ruby In Paradise. Now a film star in her own right, Judd has demonstrated her range as an actress and is a proven box office draw with her successes in Double Jeopardy, Kiss the Girls and Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood.

Judd most recently starred in the thriller Twisted for director Philip Kauffman. The film co-stars Samuel L. Jackson and Andy Garcia.

Judd was last seen on Broadway at the Music Box Theater in the leading role of Maggie in Tennessee Williams' "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” Judd was the first actress to portray Maggie on Broadway since Kathleen Turner in 1990; the production was produced by Bill Kenwright and directed by Anthony Page, and her co-star was Jason Patric.

Judd had a very successful and diverse 2002. She had a small but significant appearance in the Julie Taymor-directed biopic of Frida Kahlo, Frida. She also starred in High Crimes, which re-teamed her with her Kiss the Girls co-star, Morgan Freeman; the film was written by Joseph Finder and directed by Carl Franklin. Also, Judd starred with Greg Kinnear and Hugh Jackman in Someone Like You for director Tony Goldwyn.

Judd's other film credits include Where the Heart Is opposite Natalie Portman, Bruce Beresford's box-office success Double Jeopardy opposite Tommy Lee Jones, and Eye of the Beholder with Ewan McGregor. Judd also starred in the drama Simon Birch, based on the John Irving novel A Prayer for Owen Meany.

In 1997, Judd starred opposite Morgan Freeman in the box-office hit Kiss the Girls as well as The Locusts, co-starring opposite Vince Vaughn and Kate Capshaw. Judd was also seen in Michael Mann's Heat, for which she won critical acclaim opposite Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Val Kilmer. In the summer of 1996, she appeared in Joel Schumacher's A Time to Kill, opposite Samuel L. Jackson, Sandra Bullock and Matthew McConaughey. In late 1996 she was seen starring opposite Luke Perry in John McNaughton's Normal Life.

Also in 1996, Judd received an Emmy nomination and a Golden Globe nomination for her portrayal of Norma Jean in HBO's Norma Jean & Marilyn.

Judd made her debut theatre performance in the Naked Angels' production of "Busted,” directed by Timothy Hutton. She went on to star as Madge on Broadway in William Inge's Pulitzer Prize winning play "Picnic” at the Roundabout Theatre Company, simultaneously filming a supporting role in Smoke as the daughter of Harvey Keitel and Stockard Channing. A Kappa Kappa Gamma and Honors Program student of the University of Kentucky with a major in French and four minors, Judd has studied the Meisner technique in acting for several years. She resides in Tennessee with her husband.
