Mary Masterson


Mary Stuart Masterson, the daughter of actress Carlin Glynn and screenwriter, director, and actor Peter Masterson, made her film debut in The Stepford Wives (1975) with her father. She gained the attention of teen audiences during the 1980s in tomboy roles, most notably opposite Eric Stoltz in Some Kind of Wonderful, but moved on to more grown-up fare as Idgie Threadgoode in Fried Green Tomatoes and as the disturbed Joon in Benny & Joon with Johnny Depp. In 2000, Ms. Masterson released Grapefruit Moon, a film she wrote and directed, and in 2001, she starred in television series, “Kate Brasher.” At the age of 15, the young actress appeared on Broadway in Eva Le Gallienne's version of Alice In Wonderland—playing two parts, the Four of Hearts and the Small White Rabbit. She appeared off-Broadway in Lily Dale, The Lucky Spot, Three Sisters, and earned a Tony Award® nomination for her role in the 2003 Broadway revival of Nine opposite Antonio Banderas.
