Diane Venora Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Aug 10, 1952
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Julliard-trained actress Diane Venora made both her New York stage and film debut in 1981. The play was the off-Broadway production Penguin Touquet; the film was [[Feature~V55042~Wolfen~wolfen]]. In 1983, Venora became the focus of voluminous press coverage for her appearance in the New York Shakespeare Festival production of Hamlet--not as Ophelia or Gertrude, but in the title role! Her subsequent film roles included Gloria Swanson in [[Feature~V11102~The Cotton Club~thecottonclub]] (1984), Ellen in [[Feature~V90764~FX~coplanfx18cassetout]] (1986), Peg in [[Feature~V25409~Ironweed~ironweed]] (1987), and, best of all, Chan Parker, the put-upon wife of jazz great [[Performer~P105610~Charlie Parker~charliebirdparker]] (Forest Whitaker), in director Clint Eastwood's [[Feature~V5713~Bird~bird]] (1988). Previously seen on television as Corinna in the 1985 miniseries AD and as Ed Asner's daughter in the pilot episode of the 1994 weekly series Thunder Alley ([[Performer~P60269~Robin Riker~robinriker]] played the role in the series proper), Diane Venora was cast as Dr. Geri Infante in the CBS medical drama Chicago Hope (1994- ). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
