Linda Fiorentino –

Proud to be Italian American –

Linda Fiorentino born on March 9, 1960, is an American actress. She has appeared in the films Vision Quest, Gotcha!, After Hours, The Last Seduction, Men in Black, Jade and Dogma. For her performance in The Last Seduction she won Best Actress awards from both the New York Film Critics Circle and the London Film Critics’ Circle. She was also nominated for aBritish Academy Award for Best Actress.

Linda is a product of South Philadelphia, Pa. She is a graduate of Rosemont College in suburban Philadelphia and has studied photography since 1987 at the International Center of Photography in New York City. Fiorentino was married to film director and writer, John Byrum, until their divorce in 1993.

Fiorentino got her first professional role in 1985 when she starred in Vision Quest. She then starred in the action film Gotcha! which was filmed in the U.S., Paris, and East Berlin. Her co-star, Anthony Edwards, later directed her in Charlie’s Ghost Story.

It was not until 1994 that she became widely recognized, receiving accolades for her performance in a modern film noir,The Last Seduction, as the murderous femme fatale, Bridget. Because The Last Seduction was first aired on HBO television, Fiorentino was ineligible for an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress, despite glowing reviews.

She later worked again with director John Dahl, who cast her in his film Unforgettable and played the female lead in Men in Black in 1997. In 1999 she was the female lead in Kevin Smith’s Dogma.

Fiorentino co-starred with Paul Newman in the 2000 heist film Where the Money Is; later she played a woman threatened by a sniper in the 2002 film Liberty Stands Still opposite Wesley Snipes.
