Biography

A contemporary equivalent to actress Jean Seberg, Kim Dickens developed a reputation playing daunting and sexually powerful women on television and in film. Appearing in a wide array of roles for the better part of a decade, Dickens finally earned her due as a prostitute-turned-madam on the critically acclaimed Western series "Deadwood" (HBO, 2004-06). Before giving that breakthrough performance, she gave notable turns as Vincent Gallo's tomboyish girlfriend in "Palookaville" (1996), a Janis Joplin-like singer in "Things Behind the Sun" (Showtime, 2001) and a spurned wife in the drama "The House of Sand and Fog" (2003). But it was her turn on "Deadwood" that broadened her appeal and offered her better opportunities, including noted recurring roles on "Lost" (ABC, 2004-2010) and "Friday Night Lights" (NBC, 2006-2011). After returning as a leading player on another critically acclaimed series, "Treme" (HBO, 2010- ), Dickens affirmed her status as one of Hollywood's more respected, but underappreciated character actresses.
