Chloë Sevigny

Sevigny at the [[2019 Cannes Film Festival]] Chloë Stevens Sevigny (, born November 18, 1974) is an American actress, model, and fashion designer. Known for her work in independent films, often appearing in controversial or experimental features, Sevigny is the recipient of several accolades, including a Golden Globe Award, a Satellite Award, an Independent Spirit Award, as well as nominations for an Academy Award and three Screen Actors Guild Awards. She also has a career in fashion design concurrent with her acting work. Over the years, her alternative fashion sense has earned her a reputation as a "style icon".

After graduating from high school, Sevigny found work as a model, and appeared in music videos for Sonic Youth and The Lemonheads, which helped acquire her "it girl" status. In 1995, she made her film debut in ''Kids'', which earned her critical acclaim. A string of roles in small-scale features throughout the late 1990s, like 1996's ''Trees Lounge'', further established her as a prominent performer in the independent film scene. Sevigny rose to prominence with her portrayal of Lana Tisdel in the drama film ''Boys Don't Cry'' (1999), for which she received a nomination for the Academy Award For Best Supporting Actress.

Throughout the 2000s, Sevigny appeared in supporting parts in numerous independent films, including ''American Psycho'' (2000), ''Demonlover'' (2002); ''Party Monster'' and ''Dogville'' (both 2003); and ''The Brown Bunny'' (2004). Her participation in the latter caused considerable controversy due to a scene in which she performed graphic unsimulated fellatio. From 2006 to 2011, Sevigny portrayed Nicolette Grant on the HBO series ''Big Love'', for which she won a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2010. She also appeared in mainstream films such as David Fincher's ''Zodiac'' (2007), and the biopic ''Mr. Nice'' (2010).

After the conclusion of ''Big Love'', Sevigny went on to appear in numerous television projects, starring in the British series ''Hit & Miss'' (2012), and having supporting roles in ''Portlandia'' (2013), two seasons of ''American Horror Story''; and in the Netflix series ''Bloodline'' (2015–2017). Sevigny made her directorial debut in 2016 with the short film ''Kitty'', followed by a second short film titled ''Carmen''. She had several supporting parts in 2017 before obtaining a lead role portraying Lizzie Borden in the independent thriller ''Lizzie'' (2018), followed by another lead role in Jim Jarmusch's horror comedy ''The Dead Don't Die'' (2019). Her third film as a director, a short titled ''White Echo'', competed for the Short Film Palme d'Or at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival. Provided by Wikipedia
