A former model who successfully transitioned to acting, Andie MacDowell persevered in an industry that tried to write her off right from the start. In fact, MacDowell had one of the more inauspicious of film debuts with her leading role in ""Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes" (1984), in which her Southern twang was dubbed over by the more erudite voice of actress Glenn Close. But she managed to shake off the indignity with a more winning performance in "St. Elmo's Fire" (1985) before landing her critically acclaimed breakthrough role in the indie classic, "sex, lies and videotape" (1989). A much different actress than the one derided by critics for her "Greystoke" performance, MacDowell used her effusive Southern charm to endear herself to fans in lighthearted fare like "Green Card" (1990), "The Object of Beauty" (1991) and "Groundhog Day" (1993). Following a winning performance opposite Hugh Grant in "Four Weddings and a Funeral" (1994), the actress took an ill-advised role in the misfire revisionist Western "Bad Girls" (1994) before finding herself playing second fiddle to Michael Keaton in "Multiplicity" (1996) and John Travolta in "Michael" (1997). MacDowell emerged relatively unscathed from the critical and financial disaster known as "Town & Country" (2001) and settled into a steady career as a character actress in film and television, including roles in films as varied as "Beauty Shop" (2005) and "Magic Mike XXL" (2015), while starring in series including "Jane By Design" (ABC Family 2011-12) and "Cedar Cove" (Hallmark 2013-15).
