Biography And Filmography:

Bright eyed and adorable, with elegant features and long curvy blonde hair, actress Heather Graham has often played the sexy bad girl who steals the hearts of audiences, her facial expressions combined with her onscreen humor helping to make her a top rated actress. After debuting as the drunk girl in 1988's "License to Drive", Heather was hired by director Gus Van Sant for his crime drama "Drugstore Cowboy" (1989). Her portrayal of a young and ill-fated drug addict won applause and kudos as well as a Best Actress nomination from the Independent Spirit Awards. The following year she took on the returning role of Annie, an ex-nun who becomes the love interest of Kyle MacLachlan's Agent Cooper, in David Lynch's bizarre series "Twin Peaks".  

In 1991, Heather Graham took on a more traditional role as a college student with parent problems in the musical drama "Shout" (1991) with John Travolta and Gwyneth Paltrow, about a new music teacher  in a 1955 West Texas home for wayward boys who brings new vision and hope for many of the interned boys. Heather returned to television that year with a starring role next to Josh Hamilton and Anne Heche, as the young version of Jessica Lange's character in "O Pioneers!". After revisiting her character of Annie in the "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me" (1992) the actress appeared in "Diggstown" (1992) with James Woods, and "Six Degrees of Separation" (1993) with Will Smith. Graham then appeared in "Even Cowgirls Get the Blues" with Uma Thurman and Keanu Reeves, and the independent dramatic film "Desert Winds" (1994) about Jackie and Eugene who are joined by a mystical wind tunnel which enables them to speak across a 500-mile desert. Believed by the Indians to be an omen of good luck, the wind inspires both characters to face their fears and follow their hearts.


Heather Graham then took a small role in "Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle" (1994) with Jennifer Jason Leigh and Gwyneth Paltrow, about the famous Dorothy Parker who remembers the heyday of the Algonquin Round Table, a circle of friends whose barbed wit, like hers, was fueled by alcohol and flirted with despair. Heather then took a supporting role as Lorraine, a swing dancing beauty who is able to pull Jon Favreau's brokenhearted Mike out of his slump in "Swingers" (1966) with Vince Vaughn. She was next cast in the hip "Boogie Nights" (1977) starring Mark Wahlberg. Graham played Rollergirl, a young porn star who is never without her roller skates. 

Graham followed this role with a guest appearance in "Scream 2" (1997) with Courtney Cox, with the actress playing Drew Barrymore's character from the original in "Stab". Also in 1997, Heather co-starred with Natasha Gregson Wagner and Robert Downey Jr. in "Two Girls and a Guy", a story about at a drifting boyfriend, and the conflict between him and two of his misled lovers. She was the bright spot of the otherwise lackluster film, and she cut loose in her scenes with Downey proving she was a capable actress able to carry a feature film.

After the explicit sexuality of her last two performances, Heather Graham was hired and cast as Dr. Judy Robinson in "Lost in Space" (1998), about the Robinson family that was going into space to fight for a chance for humanity but end up fighting to live long enough to find a way home. In 1999 she co-starred as Felicity Shagwell, 1960's CIA agent in the blockbuster smash hit sequel "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me". Dressed up in sexy flower child clothes and delivering memorably cheeky lines such as "Shagwell by name, shag very well by reputation", her charming and sexy presence was the perfect swinging counterpart to Mike Myers' Austin Powers.Graham followed up with a role in the comedy "Bowfinger" (1999), starring with Steve Martin and Eddie Murphy, where a desperate movie producer fails to get a major star for his bargain basement film, and decides to shoot the film secretly around him. In 2000, she starred opposite Luke Wilson as a discarded wife on a journey to keep her wedding vows, and searching for her husband on a tumultuous road trip in "Committed".

Heather was a good casting choice starring in the romantic comedy "Sidewalks of New York" (2001) opposite Ed Burns about the interlocking lives and loves of six New Yorkers. She then jumped on the teen gross-out bandwagon with  "Say It Isn't So" (2001) about a young man who finds the love of his life but mistakenly believes her to be his sister. She was next cast as prostitute Mary Kelly in the Hughes brothers' film adaptation of the Jack the Ripper comic book "From Hell" (2001) opposite Johnny Deep.

Heather Graham next starred in the erotic thriller "Killing Me Softly" (2002) opposite Joseph Fiennes, and playing her first nude scene as a woman wrapped up in a kinky and sexy affair with a mysterious man. She was then cast in the Indian themed romantic comedy "The Guru" (2003), with rising star Jimi Mistry, where she was cast again as a porn star. She then played a girl caught in a romantic love triangle between Colin Firth and Minnie Driver in "Hope Springs" (2003) and played a bar patron with an amazing private side caught up in the battle of wills between Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler in a small role in "Anger Management" (2003). 

Graham was able to jump-start her career when she signed for an eight episode recurring role on NBC's cult hit sit-com "Scrubs" in 2004. Portraying the charmingly quirky, fast-talking psychologist Molly Clock, she reminded audiences of her comic talents and willingness to do whatever it takes to tell a joke. After appearing in an episode of “Arrested Development” (2003-2006) with Michael Cera, she landed her own sitcom, “Emily’s Reasons Why Not” (2005-2006), playing a book publisher with a series of terrible relationships who develops a system to determine suitable men, but is powerless to follow her own advice. The network promoted the series continuously, with television commercials and billboard advertisement as if it were the only show on their network. The series, however, was canceled after its the third episode because of poor ratings. Adding embarrassment to failure, she was featured in a cover story of Life magazine calling her “TV’s sexiest star” and touting her new show just days after the cancellation announcement.

Heather did not waste any time getting back into the game, starting with the religious based film "Mary" (2005) with Matthew Modine, about an actress who becomes obsessed with Mary Magdalene after playing her in a film. Next was the political thriller "Bobby" (2006) with an all-star cast including Helen Hunt, Ashton Kutcher, Shia Labeouf, Lindsay Lohan, Demi Moore, Christian Slater and Sharon Stone, the story of the assassination of United Stated Senator Robert F. Kennedy who was shot in the early morning hours of June 5, 1968 in the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, and the 25 people in the hotel whose lives were never the same. Next was the comedy "Gray Matter" (2006), a romantic comedy about a brother, a sister and the girl of their dreams. 

The actress started 2007 in the starring role in the drama "Adrift in Manhattan" (2007) about the lives of three lonely strangers who intersect while commuting on New York's 1 and 9 subway lines. Heather Graham ended the year with the romantic "Have Dreams, Will Travel" (2007) with Val Kilmer, Lara Flynn Boyle and Matthew Modine, set in the 1960's about a magical tale of two 12-year-olds embarking on an adventure to find new, cool parents and escape their neglected, overly adult, existence. She was then cast in the dramatic "Seymour's Last Rule" (2008) that traces the journey of a drug addicted but functional trauma nurse, Robbie McIntyre, whose motivation to confront her inner turmoil is precipitated by an unlikely source - a 400-pound patient, Seymour Holmes, who is near death after an apparent accident. 


More comedy followed for the actress in "Miss Conception" (2008) about an ambitious young London professional who learns she has only one month left in which to conceive a child. Following that was the musical themed "Boogie Woogie" (2008) with Gillian Anderson, and the dramatic comedy "Ex-Terminators" (2008) about three women who meet in an anger-management class and decide to form a traditional business with very untraditional methods. She then teamed with Lara Flynn Boyle again in the comedy "Baby on Board" (2008) about life for a successful power couple that gets thrown for a loop when the wife finds out she's pregnant. Heather wrapped the year with the dramatic comedy "Son of Mourning" (2008) with Tim Curry.
