Helen Slater Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Dec 15, 1963
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

American actress Helen Slater was trained at New York's High School for the Performing Arts. In 1984 she was signed for the leading role in [[Feature~V47863~Supergirl~supergirl]], perhaps hoping that this modest special-effects fest would do for her what Superman did for another unknown, [[Performer~P59343~Christopher Reeve~christopherreeve]]. Alas, [[Feature~V47863~Supergirl~supergirl]] was a failure, not so much due to Slater's spunky but antiseptic performance as to an uninvolving script and lackluster direction. Since [[Feature~V47863~Supergirl~supergirl]], Slater has been seen to best advantage in supporting parts, notably the sweet-tempered kidnapper in [[Feature~V42419~Ruthless People~ruthlesspeople]] (1986) and cattle-drive novice Bonnie Rayburn in [[Feature~V9753~City Slickers~cityslickers]] (1991). In the decades to follow, Slater would appear in numerous projects, but found particular success with roles on the TV series Gigantic and The Lying Game. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
