REBECCA DE MORNAY (Richard's Mom) began her acting training in Los Angeles at the Lee Strasberg Institute, studying under Shakespearian mentor Kristin Linklater. She became an apprentice at Francis Ford Coppola's Zoetrope Film Studio, and soon thereafter made her film debut opposite Tom Cruise in the 1983 box office hit "Risky Business”), in which she gave a seductive and critically acclaimed performance as a streetwise call girl. She went on to international stardom with her portrayal of a chillingly twisted nanny in the hugely popular "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle” Other acclaimed film work includes "Runaway Train” with Jon Voight, the Horton Foote-written classic "The Trip to Bountiful” with Geraldine Page and "Backdraft” with Kurt Russell.

She was most recently featured on television as Cissy Yost, the bitchy matriarch of a surfing family in David Milch's HBO cult favorite "John From Cincinnati.” Her network TV work includes the tour-de-force role of Arlie in "Getting Out” based on Marsha Norman's play; the tragic title character in Dominick Dunne's "An Inconvenient Woman” with Jason Robards; the remake of "The Shining" produced by Stephen King; a multi-episode story arc about a cancer survivor on "ER"; and Hallmark Hall of Fame's "Night Ride Home” with Ellen Burstyn.”

On stage, she starred as Billie Dawn in "Born Yesterday" at the Pasadena Playhouse, as Charlotte Corday in "Marat/Sade" at the Williamstown Festival, and as Anna in "Closer" at the Mark Taper Forum.

Rebecca's directing debut was with a segment of Showtime's "The Outer Limits" starring John Savage and Frank Whaley.

Ms. De Mornay currently resides in Los Angeles with sportscaster Patrick O'Neal and their daughters, Sophia and Veronica.
