Rosanna Arquette is still best known for her early film roles in 1985's Desperately Seeking Susan (co-starring Madonna) and After Hours (directed by Martin Scorsese), even though she has appeared on screen regularly since her debut in the late 1970s. She frequently appears in independently made films and is known for offbeat characters and a distinctive overbite. Her notable film appearances include Baby, It's You (1983), Pulp Fiction (1994, directed by Quentin Tarantino) and Crash (1996, based on the novel by J. G. Ballard). In 2002 she directed a documentary, Searching For Debra Winger, featuring interviews with movie stars such as Jane Fonda, Gwyneth Paltrow and Daryl Hannah.
Arquette comes from a family of actors, including her grandfather Cliff Arquette ("Charley Weaver" on the old Hollywood Squares TV show) and her siblings David, Patricia and Alexis... She's the "Rosanna," of the 1983 Toto song that won a Grammy for Record of the Year.
