      Highest Rated: 88% Gone Girl (2014)

      Lowest Rated: 7% Dragonfly (2002)

      Birthday: Jul 9, 1955

      Birthplace: Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA

      Born in Chagrin Falls, OH in 1955, Lisa Banes' professional acting career got off to an auspicious start in the 1980 Roundabout Theatre Company production of "Look Back in Anger" by John Osborne. The production was roundly applauded, and eventually brought to the big screen that same year, filmed by Lindsay Anderson and David Hugh Jones over the course of three days of performances. Once started, she worked constantly, on stage and screen, mainly in supporting roles. She appeared as the ill-fated matriarch of the Berry clan in the adaptation of John Irving's bestseller "The Hotel New Hampshire" (1984), and in two summer blockbusters in 1988, "Young Guns," and "Cocktail." Banes landed her first series regular role with "The Trials of Rosie O'Neill" (CBS, 1990-1992). The show created by Barry Rosenzweig for Sharon Gless (the two were married in 1991) as her return to television after the hit series "Cagney & Lacey" (CBS, 1982-88). Banes was a series regular on the series "Son of the Beach" (FX, 2000-02), a spoof of "Baywatch" (NBC, 1989; syndication, 1991-1999), playing Mayor Anita Massengil. She had multi-episode arcs on "Six Feet Under" (HBO, 2001-2005) and "Royal Pains" (USA, 2009-). She portrayed the mother of Ben Affleck's missing wife, Amy, in "Gone Girl" (2014) and appeared in "The World's Strongest Man" (2015), which premiered at Sundance in 2015.
