Anne Heche has proven herself an exceptional actress in film, television and stage. Her talents have earned her critical praise as well as both Tony and Emmy Award nominations.

Heche earned her first primetime Emmy Award nomination for her portrayal of a drug-addicted mother in the 2004 Lifetime Television original movie, “Gracie’s Choice,” alongside Diane Ladd. She recently appeared in the Lifetime movie “Fatal Desire” and the Hallmark Channel’s holiday movie, “Silver Bells,” on CBS, which was seen by over 16 million viewers. She has created memorable characters in several guest-starring performances on hit shows including “Nip/Tuck,” “Everwood,” “Ally McBeal” and HBO’s telefilm “If These Walls Could Talk,” directed by Cher.

On the big screen Heche was last seen opposite Nicole Kidman and Lauren Bacall in New Line Cinema’s “Birth,” directed by Jonathan Glazer. The plot line involved a woman (Kidman) who, to the dismay of her friends (Heche) and family, believes that a 10-year-old boy is the reincarnation of her deceased husband. “Birth” was screened at the 2004 Venice Film Festival and the Deauville Film Festival.

Heche won The National Board of Review Award for Best Supporting Actress for Barry Levinson’s “Wag the Dog,” in which she appeared opposite Robert DeNiro and Dustin Hoffman. She starred opposite Harrison Ford in “Six Days Seven Nights,” with Tommy Lee Jones in “Volcano,” and achieved critical acclaim for her role in “Donnie Brasco.” She co-starred in Gus Van Zant’s update of “Psycho” with Vince Vaughn and Julianne Moore, and in “Auggie Rose,” alongside Jeff Goldblum, which was screened at the Montreal Film Festival. In 2002 Heche co-starred in the Denzel Washington drama, “John Q,” and opposite Christina Ricci in the Miramax film, “Prozac Nation.”

In 2002 Heche made her Broadway debut in the critically acclaimed production of the Tony Award-winning play “Proof.” She garnered rave reviews across the board from theatre critics, and the show was extended, making it one of the longest running non-musical plays in recent history. She triumphantly returned to Broadway in the Roundabout Theater stage production of “Twentieth Century” in 2004. Her critically acclaimed performance opposite Alec Baldwin earned her a Tony Award nomination for Best Lead Actress in a Play.
