Julianne Moore has attracted the attention of audiences and critics alike with her outstanding work in a handful of films, ranging from "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle" and "Benny & Joon" to "The Fugitive" and Robert Altman's "Short Cuts." She recently starred opposite Wallace Shawn in the Sony Classics release, "Vanya on 42nd Street," directed by Louis Malle and reuniting the creative team from "My Dinner with Andre." Based on Andre Gregory's ongoing New York theater workshop of Chekhov's "Uncle Vanya," "Vanya on 42nd Street" opened to critical acclaim, much of which centered on Julianne's pivotal performance.

After completing Todd Haynes' "SAFE," Moore began principal photography on "Nine Months," a romantic comedy about the trials and tribulations of pregnancy, written and directed by Chris Columbus. "Nine Months" stars Julianne and Hugh Grant, with Tom Arnold, Joan Cusack and Robin Williams, and is tentatively slated for release later this year.

Since earning her B.F.A. in acting from the Boston University School for the Performing Arts, Julianne has starred in a number of off-Broadway and regional productions. Her theatrical work includes the American premieres of both Carol Churchill's "Serious Money" and "Ice Cream/Hot Fudge" at the Public, the original production of Arthur Kopit's "The Road to Nirvana" at the Humana Festival of New Plays in Louisville, and the Guthrie Theater's 1988 production of "Hamlet." Most recently, Julianne starred opposite Al Pacino in a brief workshop production of Strindberg's "The Father" directed by Peter Stomare at The Circle in the Square in New York.

After winning an Emmy for her dual role on "As the World Turns," Julianne went on to star in a number of television movies and miniseries including "I'll Take Manhattan," "The Last to Go," and the HBO feature "Cast a Deadly Spell," directed by Martin Campbell.

Her feature film credits include "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle." That led to back-to-back roles in the Disney comedy "The Gun in Betty Lou's Handbag," "Body of Evidence," "Benny & Joon" and "The Fugitive." In 1993, Julianne gave a stand-out performance among the distinguished cast of Robert Altman's "Short Cuts." The entire ensemble was awarded both the Volpe Cup at the Venice Film Festival and a special Golden Globe for Best Ensemble Performance, while Julianne was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award.

1995 will also see Julianne starring opposite D.B. Sweeney and Peter Falk in Peter Yates' dysfunctional family comedy "Roommates," which opened in March.
