Sally Kirkland is an American film and TV actress.

BiographyEdit

Kirkland was born in New York City to a scrap-metal business worker, Frederic, and a Vogue and Life magazine fashion editor, also named Sally. Kirkland started her career in the off-Broadway business circh 1962 and trained under acting teacher Lee Strasberg in the 1960s. It wasn't long before she made her transition into the movie industry, acquiring more prominent roles as the decade progressed. Sally's first role in a high-profile film came in the 1973 family The Sting. During the 1970s, Kirkland remained very busy in a variety of movie roles such as the made-for-TV The Kansas City Massacre, Breakheart Pass, and Private Benjamin.

Kirkland's work in the 1980s was primarily seen in the form of B-class exploitation movies, which included the low-budget slasher movies Fatal Games, Paint It Black, and High Stakes. She also appeared in the martial-arts drama Best of the Best. There were also roles in the TV soap opera General Hospital in 1982, followed by Falcon Crest in the next year. Kirkland's roles gained critical as well as commercial acclaim, including an Oscar nomination for her role as a struggling Czech has-been actress in Anna, the role of which is often remembered as her best and most challenging role to date.

In the 1990s, Kirkland started appearing in many films, but spent more time in TV movies or guest appearances on TV shows. Some of her film roles at this period were The Haunted and the erotic thriller In the Heat of Passion, in the latter of which she performs some nude scenes. She also appeared in a small role in the feature film JFK. Her guest appearances on TV shows include Murder, She Wrote, The Nanny, and Felicity. Additionally, Kirkland appeared in the soap opera Days of Our Lives for a few months in 1999. Roles in more high-profile films included Excess Baggage, Edtv and a TV adaptation of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World.

From 2000 and onward, Kirkland's film roles changed notably: she became involved in many independent movies on the film festival circuit. Notable films of such included the short movie Audit, The Rose Technique, Mango Kiss, and Coffee Date. Many of her appearances in this time period highlighted her liberal attitude towards contemporary social issues. Kirkland made a notable appearance alongside the late Robert Urich in his last movie Night of the Wolf. Her involvement with the Church of the Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness has been highlighted in the 2007 movie Spiritual Warriors.

Kirkland has received humanitarian awards, which include Blue Cross and the Crippled Children's Society. She is also an ordained minister in the Church of The Movement of Spiritual Inner Awareness, and Kirkland teaches classes that combine processes of drama, yoga, and meditation. Additionally, she is a lifetime member of The Actor's Studio and is a friend of actress Lana Clarkson.
