Linda Fiorentino:Fiorentino was born Clorinda Fiorentino
in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Her father was a steel contractor and her mother,
also named Clorinda, was a homemaker. Fiorentino is of Italian American Catholic
background. She has studied photography, off and on, since 1987 at the
International Center of Photography in New York City. She was married to
director John Byrum for a time, but they divorced in 1993. She is still very
close to Byrum's children. She splits her time between Westport, Connecticut and
New York City.
Fiorentino got her first professional acting role in 1985 when she starred in the movie Vision Quest. It was not until 1994 that she was widely recognized, when she received rave reviews and accolades for her performance in the movie The Last Seduction, where she plays femme fatale Bridget, almost the textbook example of a murderous seductress in a modern film noir. Because it was aired on HBO television she 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. Her co-star from Gotcha!, Anthony Edwards, has also directed her in one of his films. She was placed 66th in the list of "100 Sexiest Stars in Film History" by Empire magazine. In 1997, she won the role in the science fiction comedy movie Men in Black during a poker game.
Her most recent film role, in Liberty Stands Still, received little attention, because it was filmed months before and was released a few months after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. She is working on a film about the Russian poet Anna Akmatova and producing and directing a documentary about the 14th amendment to the Constitution.
The Chicago indie pop band, The Injured Parties, has a song about Fiorentino on its debut album, Fun with a Purpose (2007).
