Faye Dunaway


Primarily a movie star of the 1970?s, Faye Dunaway often played highly driven, high-strung, sexy women. She was seen in such pivotal films as ?Bonnie and Clyde,? (1967), earning her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress, and ?Chinatown,? (1974), her second Oscar nominated performance for Best Actress, and ?Network,? (1976), which won her a Best Actress Oscar.

Born in Florida to an Army officer, Dunaway traveled constantly in her early years. After studying theatre arts at the University of Boston, she went on to join the Lincoln Center Repertory Theater in New York, studying under Elia Kazan and Robert Whitehead. Her early stage roles included ?A Man for All Seasons,? and ?After the Fall.?

After her widely praised performance in an off-Broadway production of ?Hogan?s Goat,? Dunaway launched a film career that was dotted with smashing successes and outright disasters. Her occasional forays back to the stage had similar up and down results. Dunaway?s firing from the musical ?Sunset Boulevard,? definitely lies in the latter category.

In 1995, Dunaway penned her autobiography ?Looking for Gatsby: My Life.?
