Biography

A captivating, blue-eyed brunette known for projecting softness and vulnerability, Sherilyn Fenn grew up moving constantly from place to place with her keyboard-playing mother. The alluring former Playboy bunny turned sultry leading lady made her film debut in "The Wild Life" (1984) and spent much of the 1980s playing semi-clad vamps in questionable fare like the teen survival flick "Out of Control" (1985), the gangs-on-skateboards pic "Thrashin'" (1986) and the horror thriller "Zombie High" (1987). Fenn landed her first starring role (and bleached her hair blonde) as a Southern debutante experiencing her sexual awakening in Zalman King's camp fest, "Two Moon Junction" (1988), followed by another leading turn in Charles Band's erotic thriller, "Meridian: Kiss of the Beast" (1990). She also made guest appearances in several series (i.e., "Heart of the City" ABC, "21 Jump Street" Fox, "TV 101" CBS) and made-for-TV movies before making her mark as sensual-but-sincere teen temptress Audrey Horne on David Lynch's "Twin Peaks" (1990-91), for which she received a 1990 Emmy nomination.
