Maggie Gyllenhaal Biography

After playing several smaller roles in motion pictures, Maggie Gyllenhaal made her debut as a full-fledged, first-billed star in Secretary in 2002. Her sweet looks and demeanor are given complicated depth onscreen with a subtle style that enhances the characters she plays, large part or small. With the exception of a few television-movie roles, Gyllenhaal has established herself as a big-screen player, and early in her career already showed her presence taking shape. While born in Los Angeles (on November 16, 1977), Gyllenhaal resides in New York City where she settled after attending Columbia University. She earned her B.A. in English, although she had much theater experience while in college in addition to her literary focus. She also studied briefly at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London.
