Anjelica Huston Speaker Profile
Anjelica Huston was born in Santa Monica, California, and is the daughter of director and actor John Huston and ItalianAmerican prima ballerina Enrica Ricki (ne Soma), from New York.Huston spent most of her childhood in Ireland and England. She grew up in Saint Clerns House near Craughwell, County Galway, Eire. In 1969, she began taking a few small roles in her fathers movies. In that same year, her mother, who was 39 years old, died in a car accident, and Huston relocated to the US, where she modeled for several years. While she modelled, she worked with photographers such as Richard Avedon and Bob Richardson. On the photoshoots with Avedon, her hair was often done by Ara Gallant.
Huston has an older brother Tony, a younger maternal half-sister named Allegra, whom she called Legs, and a younger paternal half-brother Danny. She is the aunt of Boardwalk Empire actor Jack Huston.

Deciding to focus more on movies, in the early 1980s she seriously studied acting. Her first notable role was in Bob Rafelsons remake of The Postman Always Rings Twice (1981). Later, her father cast her as the calculating, imperious Maerose, daughter of a Mafia don whose love is scorned by a hit man (Jack Nicholson) in the film adaptation of Richard Condons Mafia-satire novel Prizzis Honor (1985). Huston won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance, making her the first person in Academy Award history to win an Oscar when a parent and a grandparent had also won one.
Huston earned a Best Actress Oscar nomination for her portrayal of an iron-willed con artist in Stephen Frears The Grifters (1990). She also starred as the lead in her fathers final directorial film, The Dead (1987), an adaptation of a James Joyce story.
She was then cast as Morticia Addams, in the hugely successful 1991 movie adaptation of The Addams Family. In 1993, she revived the Morticia role for the movie sequel: Addams Family Values. Anjelica also starred in the 1998 Hollywood blockbuster, Ever After: A Cinderella Story alongside Drew Barrymore and Melanie Lynskey as the Baroness Rodmilla De Ghent. She starred in two highly lauded Wes Anderson films, The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004), as well as in 2007s The Darjeeling Limited. She voiced the role of Queen Clarion in the Disney Fairies film series starring Tinker Bell. On January 22, 2010, Anjelica was honored on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Houston will be part of the new television series, Smash, which will air on NBC in the 201112 television season.
Huston has recently expanded her horizons, following in her fathers footsteps in the directors chair. Her first directorial credit was Bastard Out of Carolina (1996), followed by Agnes Browne (1999), in which she both directed and starred, and then Riding the Bus with My Sister (2005).
