Felicity Huffman

Her role as Lynette Scavo in TV series Desperate Housewives
Born December 9, Felicity Huffman, the youngest of eight children, studied drama at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London and at NYU's Circle in the Square. Felicity Huffman stars as Dana Whitaker, the strong and quick-witted producer of "Sports Night," who is trying to elevate the upstart Continental Sports Channel's program to victory over that other cable sports network, in Imagine Television and Touchstone Television's new half-hour comedy series, "Sports Night," for ABC. Felicity Huffman describes her character as "a woman who lives for the show. She's really dedicated and single-minded -- sort of a cross between Goldie Hawn and a Doberman pinscher," Huffman joked. Working with Aaron Sorkin and Thomas Schlamme has been a great experience for Felicity Huffman. "It is such an honor to be acting with a writer of the caliber of Aaron," she enthused. "And then there's Tommy -- I'd take a bullet for those guys". "Sports Night" is Huffman's first leading role in a comedy series. Felicity Huffman has guest-starred on "Law & Order," "Chicago Hope," and "The X-Files," among others. Her feature film credits include "Hackers," "Reversal of Fortune," and "Things Change," as well as the recently released "The Spanish Prisoner." Felicity Huffman is also a long-time member of New York's Atlantic Theater Company, which is where she met her husband, actor and cofounding member William H. Macy ("Fargo," "ER"). Felicity Huffman has appeared on Broadway in "Speed the Plow" and off-Broadway in "Cryptogram," for which she won the 1997 Obie Award -- she credits David Mamet (co-founder of the Atlantic Theater Company) for giving her such a wonderful character to play. Felicity Huffman's other off-Broadway credits include "Dangerous Corner," "Oh, Hell!" and "Boy's Life." Most recently, Macy directed her in "The Joy of Going Somewhere Definite" at the Atlantic Theater. In her spare time, Felicity Huffman is an avid reader and enjoys being outdoors and playing a variety of sports, but confesses she doesn't follow any professional sports. Felicity Huffman and Macy reside with their dog, Walter Wallingford, in Los Angeles and have an apartment in New York.Source: netglimse.com
