MARY ELIZABETH WINSTEAD (Lucy McClane) recently co-starred in the
Quentin Tarantino-directed film Death Proof, the second half of the Tarantino/Robert
Rodriguez Grindhouse double feature from Dimension Films. Last year, she appeared in
the ensemble film Bobby directed by Emilio Estevez and in the remake of the 1974 horror
classic Black Christmas released on Christmas Day.
Winstead last starred as the female lead in Final Destination 3. Previous film
credits include The Ring Two with Naomi Watts, Sky High opposite Kurt Russell and
Kelly Preston and the independent film Checking Out.
On the small screen Winstead is probably best known for her role as Jessica
Bennett in the popular NBC daytime drama Passions for which she received nominations
from The Hollywood Reporter's Young Star Awards and the Young Artist Awards for
her performance on the show. Other television credits include the CBS series Wolf Lake,
the MTV original film Monster Island, and guest roles in popular shows such as Touched
by an Angel, Tru Calling and Promised Land.
Winstead, a cousin of the legendary Ava Gardner, is no stranger to the stage. She
began her career in the performing arts as a dancer for which she studied ballet, tap and
jazz. Her theatre credits include The Nutcracker and the Broadway production of Joseph
and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat with Donny Osmond.
Originally from Rocky Mount, North Carolina, Winstead now mostly resides in
Los Angeles or wherever her next project takes her. Despite her busy schedule, she is
still finding time for higher education, taking college courses online.
