Gyllenhaal made her feature film debut in 1992, alongside Jeremy Irons and Ethan Hawke in WATERLAND. This was followed by a memorable performance as "Raven,” the Satan-worshipping make-up artist in John Waters' quirky Hollywood satire, CECIL B.

Also accomplished on stage, Gyllenhaal starred as "Alice” in Patrick Marber's award-winning "Closer” at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles for director Robert Egan, and previously at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre. In 2004, Maggie starred in Tony Kushner's play, "Homebody/Kabul,” which ran in both Los Angeles and at B.A.M. Gyllenhaal is a 1999 graduate of Columbia University where she studied Literature.
