This dark-haired attractive actor began her career in juvenile parts and made the transition to more adult roles. The daughter of 1960s folk singer Donovan, Skye was raised by her mother in California and Connecticut. She began as a child model. Director Tim Hunter saw her in a fashion layout and cast her as Clarissa in "River's Edge" (1986). Skye went on to appear as a female friend of River Ph nix's title character in "A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon" (1988) and gave a winning performance as high school heartthrob Diane Court in Cameron Crowe's fine, bittersweet love story, "Say Anything" (1989). She shone as the surly older daughter in Allison Anders' "Gas Food Lodging" (1992), which also co-starred her brother, actor-producer Donovan Leitch. Skye appeared as a coven member in Anders' "Strange Brew" segment of "Four Rooms" (1995) and made her directorial debut with the short comedy "Bed, Bath and Beyond" (1996), co-directed with Andrew Durham and Sofia Coppola. Skye portrayed an aspiring actress in the romantic comedy "Dream for an Insomniac" (filmed in 1996; released in 1998).
