Sherilyn Fenn as Madame Renee in Magic City (2013)
Ms. Sherilyn Fenn has had the advantage of working with many great writers, directors and co-stars in her career with a number of films including The Wild Life, skater film Thrashin’, and teen-fantasy movie The Wraith, and her first starring role in Zalman King’s erotic drama film Two Moon Junction.
Sherilyn won her most outstanding role and made an indelible impression on the public when she was cast by David Lynch and Mark Frost as the tantalizing ‘Audrey Horne,’ the high school femme fatale from the critically acclaimed TV series “Twin Peaks.”
After two nominations (Emmy® and Golden Globe®) and covers for Rolling Stone and Playboy magazines, Sherilyn was propelled to stardom and became a major sex symbol. She was chosen as one of People magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People in the World”, was named one of the “10 Most Beautiful Women in the World” by Us magazine, and one of the “100 Sexiest Women in the World” by FHM magazine.
Sherilyn has had an eclectic career following her breakout “Twin Peaks” role, with many more opportunities for honest portrayals like Diary of a Hitman, John Mackenzie’s fictionalized biopic Ruby, romantic comedy Three of Hearts, Carl Reiner’s 1940s detective parody Fatal Instinct and Showtime’s biblical “Slave of Dreams.” Another outstanding performance was in NBC’s miniseries “Liz: The Elizabeth Taylor Story.”
She went on to star in independent films that have been well received on the festival circuit like Jon Harmon Feldman’s Lovelife, romantic comedy Just Write and Adrian Pasdar’s neo-noir directorial debut Cement, a contemporary retelling of “Othello.”
Sherilyn’s film and television credits have included Showtime’s “Rude Awakening,” family comedy “Off Season,” Matthew Ryan Hoge’s “The United States of Leland” and Showtime’s “Cavedweller.”
