Tony Award-nominated actress Carrie Coon spent the first ten years of her career treading the boards before making a successful transition to TV and film with acclaimed performances in "The Leftovers" (HBO, 2014-) and "Gone Girl" (2014). Born in Copley, OH in 1981, Coon first developed a love of acting during her English and Spanish studies at the University of Mount Union when, as a freshman, she successfully auditioned for the Department of Theatre's production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream." Following her graduation, she went onto earn an M.F.A. in acting from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, spent four years working with the American Players Theatre and landed various voiceover and training video roles before moving to Chicago where she joined the Steppenwolf Theatre Company. Coon appeared in various plays including "The Diary of Anne Frank," "The Merchant of Venice" and "The Night of the Iguana," and also found the time to make her first on-screen appearance when she landed a guest role in the short-lived '60s-set drama, "The Playboy Club" (NBC, 2011). In 2013, Coon received a Tony Award nomination for her debut Broadway performance as Honey in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?," and added to her television credits with one-off parts in police procedural "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (NBC, 1999-), the remake of classic detective show "Ironside" (NBC, 2014) and espionage drama "Intelligence" (CBS, 2013-14). Coon then earned rave reviews for her sensitive portrayal of Nora Durst, the grief-stricken mother who lost her whole family in the 'Sudden Departure,' in the adaptation of Tom Perrotta's bleak post-apocalyptic novel, "The Leftovers" (HBO, 2014-17). Coon's profile received a further boost later that year when she played Margo Dunne, the supportive twin sister of Ben Affleck's Nick, in David Fincher's engrossing mystery, "Gone Girl" (2014). In 2016, Coon was announced as the star of the third season of the mystery drama "Fargo"
