Heather Donahue (born December 22, 1974) is an American writer and actress. Donahue was born in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, the daughter of Joan (an office manager) and James Donahue (a printer).[1]

Heather first came to public attention after appearing as the lead character in Haxan Films' 1999 horror film The Blair Witch Project, for which she was highly praised (although it won her the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress). Following the success of the film, she went on to appear in an array of independent films, as well as guest appearances on several television shows, most notably for her starring role in the science fiction miniseries Taken and a guest appearance on the sitcom It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

In 2011, Donahue signed a publishing deal for her debut book GROWGIRL, about her time as a medical marijuana grower,[2][3] which was released on January 5, 2012 by Gotham Books, an imprint of Penguin Group, USA.[4]
