Rosanna Arquette

Before getting an Emmy nod for her role in the 1982 TV movie The Executioner's Song, Rosanna Arquette displayed her formidable talent in made-for-TV films and the popular series "James at 15."

Born in New York City Aug. 10, 1959, she first appeared on the silver screen in More American Graffiti (1979) and subsequently in Gorp (1980) and S.O.B. (1981). Arquette's first leading role came in Baby It's You (1983), but it was her supporting turn in Desperately Seeking Susan (1985) that made her a star. Later that year, Arquette played opposite Jeff Goldblum in Silverado. Her body of work includes such diverse movies as Nobody's Fool (1986), Pulp Fiction (1994), Buffalo '66 (1996), The Whole Nine Yards (2000) and Good Advice (2001).

The granddaughter of Cliff Arquette (aka Charley Weaver of "Hollywood Squares" fame), Rosanna is the sister of actors David and Patricia Arquette.
