Biography

Gaby Hoffmann began acting at age four and three years later made her film debut playing Karin Kinsella, the daughter of Kevin Costner, in "Field of Dreams" (1989). The real-life daughter of Andy Warhol "superstar" Viva, the brunette Hoffmann grew up in New York City's famed Chelsea Hotel and her unconventional upbringing, predilection for speaking frankly and more traditional cuteness have made her a sought after young actress. As a child, she shone in roles that showcased her candor and precociousness, such as her supporting turns in "Uncle Buck" (1989), "The Man Without a Face" and "Sleepless in Seattle" (both 1993) and as the star of the short-lived NBC sitcom "Someone Like Me" (1994).
