Calista Flockhart Biography

After graduating from Rutgers University, New Jersey, in 1987 with a Fine Arts degree, the twenty-three year old actress put her school and community theater experience to use to become a full-time actress. She took on bit parts in day-time television dramas and role in the TV series Darrow, and the HBO special The Secret Life of Mary Margaret: Portrait of a Bulimic, but it was stage work on and off Broadway and in Chicago and Williamstown theaters that kept her busy and for which she won her first formal acclamations. Her credits include The Loop, All For One, Sophistry, Wrong Turn At Lungfish, Beside Herself, Bovver Boys, The Three Sisters, Our Town and Death Takes A Holiday. One of People Magazines 50 Most Beautiful People (1998) at 36, this frail and pretty actress is a professional heavyweight in the industry, with a solid background and a promising future.
