Bio

It was Academy Award Susan Sarandon’s participation in the anti-war protests at the 1968 Democratic National Convention that led to her being cast opposite Peter Boyle in the film Joe, subsequently launching her acting career.

While she established her stardom with her role in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Sarandon appeared in a number of notable films early in her career, including The Great Waldo Pepper with Robert Redford, and The Front Page with Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau.

Following her appearance in the 1978 film Pretty Baby, Sarandon received the first of five Oscar nominations for Best Actress for her starring role opposite Burt Lancaster in Louis Malle’s Atlantic City. She would go on to be nominated for her roles in Thelma & Louise, Lorenzo’s Oil and The Client before winning the Best Actress award in 1996 for her role as Sister Helen Prejean in Tim Robbins’ Dead Man Walking.

In addition to her Oscar-nominated roles, Sarandon has been seen in more than fifty feature films, including notables like The Hunger, The Witches of Eastwick, with Kevin Costner in Bull Durham, A Dry White Season, Bob Roberts, Wayne Wang’s Anywhere But Here, Igby Goes Down, The Banger Sisters, and Cameron Crowe’s Elizabethtown with Kirsten Dunst.

No stranger to television, with over 25 regular cast and guest star roles in a number of series, miniseries and telefilms to her credit, Sarandon was a series regular on the daytime dramas A World Apart and Search for Tomorrow.

She has appeared as a guest star on the series Owen Marshall: Counselor at Law, Wide World of Mystery, Faerie Tale Theatre (starring in Beauty and the Beast), The Simpsons, Friends, and Malcolm in the Middle.

She's also a guest star in the third season of Rescue Me where she plays Alicia, a wealthy woman who sets out to seduce Franco.

Her mini-series and telefilms include The Satan Murders, The Whirlwind, Oxbridge Blues, A.D., Mussolini: The Rise and Fall of Il Duce, Women of Valor, Earthly Possessions, Children of Dune, Ice Bound, and Exonerated. She also hosted the documentary series Independent Lens.
