A stage-trained actress whose brief foray in daytime drama eventually led her into a feature-film career, Lucinda Jenney's star has been on the rise since the early 1980s. Alternating effortlessly between television and film throughout the course of her career, the talented and attractive blonde actress always had a slant toward the dramatic. A Long Island-native whose impressive run in the Broadway production of Gemini (1977-1981) proved the catalyst for her subsequent onscreen career, Jenney's first feature roles came with the made-for-TV efforts First Steps and Out of the Darkness (both 1985). Roles in Peggy Sue Got Married (1986) and Rain Man (1988) were quick to follow, and, in 1989, the actress rounded out her impressive first decade as John Belushi's onscreen wife in the biopic Wired. Though the film was widely panned, it proved Jenney's most substantial role thus far and she escaped relatively unscathed. As the 1990s rolled in, she was nominated for a Best Actress Independent Spirit Award for her performance in 1993's American Heart and a recurring role on the television series High Incident found her gaining something of a following on the small screen. With her performance as one of Demi Moore's sole allies in G.I. Jane (1997), Jenney continued to balance bit roles in such efforts as Leaving Las Vegas (1995) and Thinner (1996) with meatier, more dramatically substantial parts. Supporting roles in high-profile Hollywood releases became increasingly common for Jenney, and following key roles in Thirteen Days (2000) and The Mothman Prophecies (2002), she joined the cast of the acclaimed police drama The Shield. The following year, Jenney appeared in the action thriller S.W.A.T.
