Patricia Clarkson first fell in love with acting as a teenager in her native New Orleans and honed her skills at Yale and later on the New York stage. She made her film debut in Brian DePalma’s 1987 gangster flick The Untouchables and went on to become the darling of the indie film world with her stunning turn in 1998’s High Art, followed by strong roles in such lauded films as Far from Heaven, The Station Agent, and Pieces of April. Her spot-on performance in the latter earned her her first Golden Globe and Oscar nods. She also won a pair of Emmys for guest appearances on the HBO hit series Six Feet Under. She has continued to wow movie lovers with finely etched portraits in such diverse films as Good Night, and Good Luck; Vicky Christina Barcelona; Shutter Island; and Cairo Time.
Clarkson will be interviewed by Angelica Jade Bastien, a staff writer for Vulture who has also written for New York Times,The Atlantic, and The Village Voice.
