Melora Walters earned rave reviews for her haunting portrayal of drug-
addicted Claudia, the emotional center of Paul Thomas Anderson's
critically acclaimed Magnolia. Her role as adult film star Jesse St.
Vincent in Anderson's earlier feature Boogie Nights, for New Line
Cinema, propelled Walters into the Hollywood spotlight.
She was most recently seen in Katherine Lindberg's dark drama, Rain,
which was executive produced by Martin Scorsese and which made its
international debut at the Venice Film Festival. In addition, she stars
in Intermedia Films' feature, Wise Girls opposite Mira Sorvino and
Mariah Carey, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival.
Walters co-stars with Nicole Kidman, Jude Law and Giovanni Ribisi in
the upcoming Miramax MGM feature Cold Mountain, directed by Anthony
Minghella. She was recently seen opposite Nicolas Cage in Ridley
Scott's Matchstick Men. Walters is also preparing to star in and
produce the independent film Hideous Men for director Lawrence Johnson.
The project is based on the book Brief Interviews with Hideous Men, by
David Foster Wallace.
Her numerous film credits include Hard Eight, Eraser, Los Locos, Cabin
Boy, Beethoven, Twenty Bucks, Ed Wood, and her feature debut, Dead
Poet's Society.
