Rosanna Arquette is an American actress, film director, and film producer. She was nominated for an Emmy Award for her performance in the 1982 TV film The Executioner’s Song, and won the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for the 1985 film Desperately Seeking Susan. Her other film roles include After Hours (1985), The Big Blue (1988), Pulp Fiction (1994), and Crash (1996). She also directed the 2002 documentary Searching for Debra Winger, and starred from 2006 to 2007 in the ABC sitcom What About Brian?
Arquette has appeared in both television and screen films. In 1982, she earned an Emmy Award nomination for the TV film The Executioner’s Song. However, she was unhappy with the film’s nude scene, remarking in an interview that the idea of the general public seeing her naked made her feel uncomfortable and exploited, and that most of the offers she’d received since demanded that she similarly expose herself.
Her first starring role was in John Sayles’s 1983 film, Baby It’s You, a highly regarded but little seen film. She starred in Desperately Seeking Susan (1985) alongside pop singer Madonna.
In 2010, Rosanna Arquette became Goodwill Ambassador for The Womanity Foundation.
