A highly versatile actress, Madeleine Stowe possessed an ethereal beauty that belied the intense and emotionally complex characters that she brought to life on the big screen. After many years of playing either the tortured or swooning love interest to several of Hollywood's biggest leading men like Kevin Costner and Daniel Day-Lewis, Stowe made her film debut in the action comedy "Stakeout" (1987), and later surprised critics with her breakout performance in the acclaimed classic "The Last of the Mohicans" (1992), as a hard-hitting aristocrat who survives in the forests of Colonial America. Following a turn in the popular thriller "Unlawful Entry" (1992), she impressed as a clear-eyed wife of a lying cop in the biting comedy "Short Cuts" (1993) and had her first leading role in the taut thriller "Blink" (1994), before joining the mostly female cast of "Bad Girls" (1994). Stowe went on to star opposite Bruce Willis in the sci-fi thriller "12 Monkeys" (1995) before stepping away from acting for three years to focus on being a mother. After her return role in "The Proposition" (1998), Stowe appeared in "The General's Daughter" (1999), "Imposter" (2001) and "We Were Soldiers" (2002), only to leave features to concentrate on television, culminating in her praised performance on the drama series "Revenge" (ABC, 2011-15). Throughout her career, Stowe consistently proved that she was willing and able to tackle more exciting roles usually reserved for the most seasoned and powerful actresses in Hollywood.

QUOTES FROM Madeleine Stowe CHARACTERS

Dr. Kathryn Railly says: Cassandra in Greek legend, you recall, was condemned to know the future but to be disbelieved when she foretold it. Hence the agony of foreknowledge combined with the impotence to do anything about it.
