Biography

As the tough, foulmouthed, gun-slinging Calamity Jane on the gritty revisionist Western series "Deadwood" (HBO, 2004-06), actress Robin Weigert found herself a known commodity after a career previously spent in relative obscurity. Weigert was unforgettable as the toughest woman on the frontier, more than holding her own with some of the roughest characters assembled on television, which opened the doors for more prominent roles both on television and the big screen. Prior to "Deadwood," she was an occasional guest star on New York-based procedurals while cutting her teeth on the stage, including in an acclaimed Broadway revival of "Noises Off" (2001) and a prominent role in a Mike Nichols production of "The Seagull" (2001). Her performance in the latter led the director to cast her in a supporting part for his acclaimed miniseries "Angels in America" (HBO, 2003). By the time she did "Deadwood," Weigert was seen in studio releases like "The Good German" (2006) while landing a small recurring role on the popular series "Lost" (ABC, 2004-2010). Though sticking mainly to guest appearances and short series arcs after "Deadwood" left the air in 2006, Weigert nonetheless remained a talented and highly-sought after character performer.
