Biography


Possessing both real acting talent and natural beauty coupled with strong performances she is consistently capable to deliver of, Virginia Madsen sure is one of the fine female movie stars Hollywood ever has although she had to wait for more than twenty years of her career to attain the accolade she deserves. A native of Chicago, Illinois who was born on September 11, 1961 to Cal and Elaine Madsen, Virginia had been familiar with film industry from a very young age since her mother underwent a profession as a TV producer besides being a writer also a poet. Started to be involved in acting during her study at New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois, the teen continued to polish her skills at Chicago's Ted Liss Acting Studio and the Harand Camp Adult Theater Seminar in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, before finally fixed her mind to become an actress.

Accompanied by her boyfriend, Bill Campbell, who also shared the same desire, Virginia then left her hometown to head for Hollywood, Los Angeles, looking for a good opportunity to begin her career. Within a short time, she made her way to earn a minor role in "Class" (1983), followed by appearances in "Electric Dreams" and "Dune" which both came up in 1984. Her name came up to the surface when she managed to gain wide-range audience's notice in "Fire with Fire" (1986), consequently led her to gain more roles either in big or small screen productions, most notably the recurring part in ABC's popular series of "Moonlighting" (1985-1989) by 1989. Sadly, her relationship with Campbell, on the other hand, encountered its end in the same year yet she quickly found another man, Danny Huston, whom she eventually married shortly thereafter.
