Indie film darling Parker Posey was born in 1968 in Baltimore, Maryland and raised in Mississippi, before she headed to SUNY Purchase to study drama. After breaking into professional acting with a small role in the TV movie "First Love, Fatal Love" (HBO, 1991), Posey landed supporting roles in "Coneheads" (1993), and cult classic "Dazed and Confused" (1993), which began her iconic role in independent cinema. The same year, she played a recurring role on the limited series "Tales of the City" (Channel 4, 1993; PBS, 1994). Over the next decade, Posey operated almost exclusively in the independent film world. Her breakthrough role came when she played the lead character in the film "Party Girl" (1995), and she continued to create unique characters in films like "Flirt" (1995), "Kicking and Screaming" (1996), and "Basquiat" (1996). In 1997 she was part of the ensemble in "Waiting For Guffman" (1997), the first of many collaborations with actor-director Christopher Guest. However, Posey was not limited to indie films, appearing in supporting roles in mainstream fare such as "You've Got Mail" (1998), and "Scream 3" (2000), as well as lending her talents to TV series, with recurring roles on shows like "Will & Grace" (NBC, 1998-2006, 2017-) and "Boston Legal" (ABC, 2004-08). She was a series lead in Amy Sherman-Palladino's short lived "The Return of Jezebel James" (Fox, 2008) and appeared in a number of episodes of the show "Granite Flats" (BYUtv, 2013-15), while continuing to support independent film with roles in Woody Allen's "Café Society" (2016) and "My Art" (2016). In 2018, Posey was a series regular on "Lost In Space" (Netflix, 2018-), playing the mysterious Dr. Smith. The same year, she published You're on an Airplane, a memoir.
