Biography

Despite lacking any outward pretense of wanting to become an actress, Chloë Sevigny generated considerable buzz in her adopted home of New York City even before the independent film world showcased her onscreen allure. Sevigny emerged from her Fairfield County background with both the grace of privilege and the awkwardness of an outsider, a duality that shaped her beguiling persona and added dimension to her screen presence in her cinematic debut, "Kids" (1995). Though she continued to challenge herself with offbeat features like "Gummo" (1997) and "Julien Donkey-Boy" (1999), Sevigny strangely found herself as something of a fashion maven, thanks to her unique, offbeat style. But instead of allowing herself to become a mere pop-culture star, she delivered an Oscar-caliber performance in the gut-wrenching independent drama, "Boys Don't Cry" (1999). Despite her mainstream success, Sevigny continued along her indie path, appearing in films like "Party Monster" (2003), "Shattered Glass" (2003) and "The Brown Bunny" (2004); the latter of which earned the actress considerable notoriety for an explicit onscreen sexual act. Nonetheless, she landed a surprise regular-series turn on the popular and acclaimed "Big Love" (HBO, 2006-2011), which allowed the talented actress to display her gifts to a wider audience.
