One of the hottest stars of the mid-1980s, Virginia Madsen is one of Hollywood's most talented actresses. Voted as one of the most beautiful actresses in 1986, Virginia has had several excellent performances in her career thus far. Audiences first caught a glimpse of her as "Princess Irulan" in the 1984 science fiction epic _Dune (1984)_ (qv). She followed that up with _Electric Dreams (1984)_ (qv); however, it was in 1986 that Virginia captured the hearts of the audience with an intense portrayal of a Catholic school girl who fell in love with a boy from a prison camp in 'Duncan Gibbins' (qv)' _Fire with Fire (1986)_ (qv). Virginia played the role of "Lisa" and her co-star was 'Craig Sheffer' (qv), who played Lisa's love interest, "Joe Fisk". 'Kari Wuhrer' (qv) also made an appearance as Virginia's best friend, "Gloria". _Fire with Fire (1986)_ (qv) was a low-budget production, starring a bunch of fresh faces who were till then-unknown to Hollywood. However, the movie was a success and elevated its three young stars overnight. Virginia has never looked back since. With 35 releases since _Fire with Fire (1986)_ (qv) thus far, Virginia is a busy actress and has played a variety of roles which further enhance her reputation as a fantastic actress who can adapt to any kind of role. Virginia belongs to an acting family -- with her brother 'Michael Madsen (I)' (qv), also an actor, and her mother, 'Elaine Madsen' (qv), an Emmy-winning writer and producer. Not only did she receive amazing reviews for her Academy Award and Golden Globe nominated performance in 'Alexander Payne (I)' (qv)'s hit film, _Sideways (2004)_ (qv), but this Independent Spirit Award-winning actress has an illustrious resume of roles alongside the most notable and respected actors in the business. Also on Virginia's slate is her production company, with partner 'Karly Meola' (qv), called "Title IX Productions". Their first project was the documentary _I Know a Woman Like That (2009)_ (qv), which previewed at the Phoenix Film Festival in April 2009 and premiered at the Chicago Film Festival in October 2009. The doc was directed by Virginia's mother, 'Elaine Madsen' (qv), about the lives of extraordinary women ages 64-94. Next in the company's lineup is the documentary Fighting Gravity (2010), about women ski jumpers' ongoing battle for the right to compete in the 2010 Winter Olympics. Title IX will team up with "Empire 8 Productions" and Vancouver-based "Screen Siren" on the project. The duo also has several projects in development that they're shopping around for financing including screenwriters 'Sebastian Gutierrez (I)' (qv)'s screen adaptation of 'Martha O'Connor (II)' (qv)'s novel "The Bitch Posse" and a remake of the 1984 film _Electric Dreams (1984)_ (qv), in which Virginia appeared.

-   Former daughter-in-law of 'John Huston (I)' (qv) and 'Zoe Sallis' (qv); former sister-in-law of 'Tony Huston (I)' (qv), 'Anjelica Huston' (qv), and 'Pat Delaney (I)' (qv) (as the wife of Tony Huston); also former sister-in-law of 'Georganne LaPiere' (qv), ex-wife of her brother 'Michael Madsen (I)' (qv) and half-sister of 'Cher (I)' (qv).

-   Her father is Danish-American; her mother is Irish-American and Aboriginal American.

-   Sister-in-law of 'DeAnna Madsen' (qv)

-   Former sister-in-law of 'Jeannine Bisignano' (qv) and 'Georganne LaPiere' (qv).

-   Is allergic to bee stings.

-   In an interview, she admitted that she was sobbing so hard at the end of _Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan (1982)_ (qv) when Spock died, that she had to go home as soon as the movie was over.

-   Appeared in 'Michael Jackson (I)' (qv)'s "Liberian Girl" music video

-   Appeared in Kenny Loggin's music video for "I'm Free (Heaven Helps the Man)".

-   TV commercial for Botox Cosmetic


-   When you say no a lot as an actor, you're going to go broke, and that's been the hardest thing to go through in the last 10 years. Being a single mother and having financial problems is a nightmare.

-   I laugh when I hear someone talking about an actress "making such good choices." Yeah, well, she was probably broke! Or she's being supported and doesn't have to worry about it. And I hope that people keep that in mind when an actor suddenly does a movie for the Sci Fi Channel that is maybe not "important." We've got to make a living. People are going to do the "pay the rent" movie once in a while. The important movies don't pay well. They're for scale, or even worse, something they invented called "independent scale," in which case it's like it's costing me money to make the movie. You're getting $500 per week, before taxes and American Express is calling. So it is our job. It's how we make our living, and you don't always have the luxury of making a movie like _Sideways (2004)_ (qv). I even got paid well to do that! Especially for me, at the time. [interviewed by Russ Fischer, CHUD.com, February 2007]

-   Playing "Lisa" in _Fire with Fire (1986)_ (qv) is a perfect example of how I am, intense, impulsive, full of love and ready to risk it all if I have to. Playing her was incredibly easy, as everything was just so natural.
