In the early 1970s, Amy was featured in Playboy Magazine wearing only jelly, to promote her music band, "Jelly." Amy is the daughter of 'John Madigan (I)' (qv), a media personality in Chicago, Illinois, who once hosted a Chicago TV show called "Standpoint."

-   Amy, along with husband 'Ed Harris (I)' (qv), were among a strong minority of attendees of the 2000 Acadamy Awards who refused to applaud during director 'Elia Kazan' (qv)'s acceptance of his honorary Oscar.

-   Graduated from Marquette University with a degree in philosophy.

-   Studied acting with 'Lee Strasberg' (qv).

-   In _The Dark Half (1993)_ (qv), her character shares scenes with a character named "Sheriff Alan Pangborn" (played by 'Michael Rooker (I)' (qv)).

-   A Streetcar Named Desire (1992). Drama (revival). Written by 'Tennessee Williams' (qv). Directed by 'Gregory Mosher' (qv). Ethel Barrymore Theatre: 12 Apr 1992- 9 Aug 1992 (137 performances + 31 previews that began on 17 Mar 1992). Cast: 'Alec Baldwin' (qv) (as "Stanley Kowalski"), 'Jessica Lange (I)' (qv) (as "Blanche Du Bois"), Timothy Carhart (as "Harold Mitchell/Mitch"), 'Amy Madigan' (qv) (as "Stella Kowalski"), Susan Aston (as "A Woman/AKA Nurse"), William Cain (as "A Man/AKA Doctor"), 'Sol Echeverria' (as "Mexican Woman/AKA Flower Vendor"), 'James Gandolfini' (qv) (as "Steve Hubbell"), 'Edwina Lewis' (qv) (as "Negro Woman"), Matt McGrath (as "Young Collector"), 'Lázaro Pérez' (qv) (as "Pablo Gonzales"), 'Aida Turturro' (qv) (as "Eunice Hubbell"). Produced by Gregory Mosher, James Walsh, Capital Cities/ABC Inc., Suntory International Corporation and The Shubert Organization (Gerald Schoenfeld: Chairman. Bernard B. Jacobs: President).


-   I wanted to be a boy when I was young because boys got to do all the good stuff. So I became very aggresive and very competitive at a young age.

-   The music business is rougher than the movie business. In film you get noticed in a small role, even in a movie that bombs. But in records you better have that hit or else it's 'See you later.'
