Joanna Cassidy

Born in Haddonfield, N.J., Joanna Cassidy attended Syracuse University with a major in fine arts. Her extracurricular activities always included sports— something in which she always excelled: "In sports I just completely took over. I was the best. It was high school hockey, basketball, softball—I did it all," the red-headed actress says. Joanna began her career with a brief turn as a weather girl at a Columbia, S.C , television station before moving on to San Francisco. In the Bay Area, Joanna became one of the city's top models and in a few short years she set out for Hollywood to pursue an acting career. Her introductory role was in the feature 'The Laughing Policeman.' with Walter Matthau, and was soon followed by roles in 'The Bank Shot,' 'The Outfit,' 'Stay Hungry,' 'Prime Time,' 'The Late Show,' 'Stunts,' 'The Winning Season' and most recently in 'Night Games.' Her TV credits included a weekly role on the 'Shields and Yarnell' show, a starring role in the series 'Rollergirls' and in the television movie 'Dress To Kill.' Joanna lives with her two children, Naomi and Daniel, in suburban Brentwood, Calif. Among her many hobbies are jogging, roller skating, gymnastics, needlepoint, pen and ink drawing and cooking.
