Biography


Is it possible for an actor to rocket to the highest stardom within merely two years? The answer is yes and Felicity Huffman is the living proof. From becoming almost unnoticed, she was suddenly the cream of acting profession. In her forties, she was ready to kick off and reign the list of Hollywood's outstanding actresses. How she came to that point? The years behind that plausibly provided the answer to that question.

Talent was indeed known to be raw without commitment. Huffman had realized the notion since the very beginning of her life. She was born on December 9, 1962 in Bedford, New York. Her parents split a year after her birth and her mother Grace Huffman took her to Colorado where she would be raised. In 1978 she had a great start as one of the main roles in a TV drama “A Home Run for Love”. Loving the field, she attended Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan and graduated in 1981. Feeling that it wasn't enough, she explored drama and earned BFA title from New York University in 1988. Fate interfered here as she met her future husband, William H. Macy who was the co-founder of the Atlantic Theater Company in which she was a member. For the next two years, Huffman involved herself in stage performances including a Broadway production of “Speed-the-Plow” as Madonna's understudy. Then she would gladly take small roles in “Things Change” (1988) and “Reversal of Fortune” (1990) before becoming a regular in Stephen King's “Golden Years” in 1991.
