Daryl Hannah was born and raised in Chicago, where she was selected
while still in school to play a victim of lethal telekinesis in Brian
De Palma's psycho-thriller The Fury (1978).
She made her first strong individual impression on audiences after re-
locating to Los Angeles, when she was cast as the acrobatic android
Pris in Ridley Scott's science fiction classic Blade Runner (1982). The
erotic melodrama Summer Lovers (1982), James Foley's Reckless (1984),
and above all, Ron Howard's Splash (1984), in which she played a
mermaid named Madison who captivates Tom Hanks, established the willowy
actress as one the definitive Hollywood icons of the 1980s.
Since then, Hannah has appeared in more than 30 feature films including
The Clan of the Cave Bear (1986), Wall Street (1987), Roxanne (1987),
Steel Magnolias (1989), At Play In The Fields Of The Lord (1991), and
Grumpy Old Men (1993).
She recently made her stage debut in London in "The Seven Year Itch," a
revival of the George Axelrod play directed by Michael Radford. She
subsequently acted in Radford's semi-improvised film about Hollywood
strippers, Dancing at the Blue Iguana (2000). She also directed,
produced and shot the documentary Strip Notes, based upon her research
for the role; the 30-minute film appears as a special feature on the
Blue Iguana DVD. She received the Berlin International Film Festival's
Jury Award for Best Short for The Last Supper, a film that she wrote,
produced and directed.
Hannah can currently be seen in Quentin Tarantino's much-anticipated
Kill Bill. She recently starred in the Polish Bros' Northfork, and John
Sayles' Casa De Los Babys, playing a woman who travels to South
American to adopt a child.
