(Mary Elizabeth Spacek)
actress
Born: 12/25/1949

Spacek was a major star of the 1980s. Though her freckled face and Texas accent are atypical of most Hollywood divas, sheer acting mettle secured her success. She won an Oscar for playing Loretta Lynn in Coal Miner's Daughter (1980; she did the singing, too) and received Oscar nominations for her roles in Carrie (1976), Missing (1982), The River (1984), Crimes of the Heart (1986), and In The Bedroom (2001) (for which she did win a Golden Globe). She also gave memorable performances in 'Night, Mother (1986), JFK (1991), Affliction (1997), and The Straight Story (1999). Spacek is the cousin of actor Rip Torn and mother of actress Schuyler Fisk.
