Lara Flynn Boyle - Biography


Lara Flynn Boyle (born March 24, 1970) is an American film and television actress best known for her performances as Laura Palmer's best friend Donna Hayward in Twin Peaks and Assistant District Attorney Helen Gamble in The Practice. She has had a number of movie roles from the late '80s through the present but has found the most recognition through her roles in television series.

Boyle was born in Davenport, Iowa, the daughter of Sally Boyle, a clerical worker, assistant, and manager. Although she is of mostly Roman Catholic Irish descent, Boyle also has an Italian-American great-grandfather. She is named after a character in Boris Pasternak's novel Dr. Zhivago. She was raised in Chicago, Illinois and Wisconsin. Boyle studied at and graduated from The Chicago Academy for the Arts.

Boyle's first film role was a bit part in Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986), which earned her a SAG card, though her scenes were deleted from the final cut of the film. She then appeared in the mini-series Amerika (1987) and films Poltergeist III (1988) and Dead Poets Society (1989) from which her scenes were deleted, before landing her first major part, that of Donna Hayward in the critically acclaimed series Twin Peaks. When the series ended in 1991, creator David Lynch produced a movie, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, but—largely due to her rise in fame and increased film offers—Boyle chose not to return. Moira Kelly took over the role of Donna for the film.
Boyle spent much of the 1990s making a name for herself in films with varying degrees of success. Some of her most notable roles during that time were:
the obsessive and accident-prone Stacy in Wayne's World (1992)
the fragile, homeless teen Heather in Where The Day Takes You (1992)
psycho secretary-from-hell Kris Bolin in what was geared to be her breakout success, but ultimately became a box-office bust, The Temp (1993)
the sultry and manipulative Suzanne of Red Rock West (1993), which solidified her status as a premier femme fatale
Alex, the promiscuous beauty in the comedy Threesome (1994)
flighty, manically repressed housewife Marianne Byron in Afterglow (1997)
In 1997, Boyle auditioned for the title role in David E. Kelley's Ally McBeal. Although she lost out to Calista Flockhart, the actress impressed Kelley enough to create the role of Assistant District Attorney Helen Gamble in his other 1997 series, The Practice, specifically for her. She starred on that show until 2003, when - in a dramatic attempt to revamp the show and cut costs - she was unceremoniously dismissed along with most of the cast. The role of Helen earned her an Emmy nomination, as well as several Screen Actors Guild ensemble cast nominations. Boyle also made a crossover appearance in the role of Helen in an episode of Ally McBeal, the show she originally was not cast for. She also did make another uncredited guest appearance on Ally McBeal in its final season.
In 2002, Boyle played a lead role in the blockbuster film Men in Black II as the villainous shapeshifting alien Serleena. She also guest-starred on one of the last episodes of Ally McBeal, this time as Tally Cupp, a completely different role from that which she had played before. Recently, she had a recurring role on several episodes of Huff, playing Melody Coatar, an unstable patient with borderline personality disorder and bipolar disorder.
In 2005, Boyle joined the cast of Las Vegas for a seven-episode stint as Monica Mancuso, a new hotel owner. She played Barbara Amiel in the TV true story "Shades of Black", about Amiel's controversial husband, Lord Conrad Black. Boyle also guest-starred as an ambitious reporter involved with the suspects in a possible murder in the Law & Order 2008 episode "Submission".

Boyle has dated actors Harrison Ford, Richard Dean Anderson, Kyle MacLachlan, David Spade, Jack Nicholson, and Eric Dane. She has a tattoo on her back from then-boyfriend Jay Penske. She is dyslexic.
She has been married twice. Her first husband was John Patrick Dee III, whom she married on August 11, 1996 and divorced two years later. Her current husband is Donald Ray Thomas II, a real-estate investor, whom she married on December 18, 2006 in San Antonio, Texas. She has two half-brothers, Ethan and Mike Boyle. Mike Boyle is currently a musician in the band "The Howabouts" - a Chicago Indie/Pop band. (myspace.com/thehowaboutsmusic)
Boyle's home in Beverly Hills was built in the 1920s as servants' quarters for Pickfair, the former home of Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks.


Lara Flynn Boyle - Personal Quotes


(On what happened when she started out in the film business) "When I used to go to auditions, I would be told "If Winona Ryder doesn't get it, you will". Hollywood makes so many movies - surely Winona can't do ALL of them!"

"Look, I love being famous. I'm not one of those people who feels like, Why won't they leave me alone? If I care only about the craft of acting, I'd be doing dinner theater in Iowa. But the attention on you gets to a point where it's beyond invasive - it's scary." Cosmo Magazine, April 2005 Issue

"I'm Irish Catholic, so a Democrat by blood. But I'm one hundred per cent for Bush. I want my president to be like my agent - not afraid of people, but wants my best interest."

Coffee and smoking are the last great addictions.

I had such a great mom and I know that I'd never be that mom. I wouldn't want to bring a child into this world unless I could be.
