Patricia Arquette (born April 8, 1968)[1] is an American actress. Her film appearances include Tony Scott's True Romance (1993), Tim Burton's Ed Wood (1994), David O. Russell's Flirting with Disaster (1996), David Lynch's Lost Highway (1997), Stephen Frears's The Hi-Lo Country (1998), and Martin Scorsese's Bringing Out The Dead (1999). In 2003 she played Kissin' Kate Barlow in the Disney film Holes (2003).

From 2002 until 2013, she played Olivia Evans, the mother in Richard Linklater's Boyhood, which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. For this role she won the BAFTA, Critics' Choice, Golden Globe, and SAG Awards for Best Supporting Actress. In addition, she received nominations for the Indie Spirit and Academy Award; as well as winning the Los Angeles Film Critics, New York Film Critics, and NSFC awards.

On television, she played real life psychic Allison DuBois in the supernatural drama series Medium for seven seasons (2005–11) for which she received three Golden Globe nominations and two Emmy Award nominations, winning the Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama in 2005. Starting in March 2015, Arquette will play the leading role of Special Agent Avery Ryan in the CSI spinoff series CSI: Cyber.[2]

Early life and family[edit]

Arquette was born in Chicago, Illinois, the daughter of Lewis Arquette (1935–2001), an actor, and Brenda Olivia "Mardi" (née Nowak; 1939–1997), who was also involved in the arts.[3] Arquette's father was a convert from Catholicism to Islam; through him, Patricia is distantly related to explorer Meriwether Lewis.[4][3][5][6] Arquette's mother was Jewish (from a family that immigrated from Poland and Russia).[7][8][9] Her paternal grandfather was comedian Cliff Arquette; and her siblings are actors Rosanna, Alexis, Richmond, and David Arquette. As a child, her parents offered to get her braces for her teeth; but she refused, telling them she wanted to have flaws because it would help her with character acting.[10]

Career[edit]

In 1987, Arquette's first starring roles included pregnant teenager Stacy in the television film Daddy,[11] boarding school student Zero in Pretty Smart, and the attention-getting Kristen Parker in A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. She was set to appear in the sequel, A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master, but she had to drop out due to pregnancy with her son Enzo, which also caused her to leave the role of Tralala in Last Exit to Brooklyn. In 1988, Arquette played the daughter of Tess Harper in Far North; and, in 1992, she won a CableACE Award for Best Lead Actress in a Mini-Series for her portrayal of a deaf girl with epilepsy in Wildflower, directed by Diane Keaton and also starring Reese Witherspoon.

In January 2005, she began starring in her first television series, NBC's Medium. Her role as (a fictionalized version of) psychic medium Allison DuBois won her an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in 2005, as well as nominations for a Golden Globe in 2005, 2006 and 2007, a SAG Award in 2006, 2007 and 2010, and an Emmy Award in 2007. In 2009 NBC cancelled Medium, then CBS picked the show up and it lasted another two seasons.[12] Arquette played the role of Allison DuBois until the final episode of Medium aired on January 21, 2011.[13] In 2013, she began appearing on Boardwalk Empire as Sally Wheet. In 2014, Boyhood was released, a project that Arquette shot for 12 years since 2002. She has received widespread acclaim for her performance, including Golden Globe and BAFTA wins for Best Supporting Actress.

Personal life[edit]

Arquette became pregnant around the time she turned 20 with her son Enzo Rossi (born January 3, 1989), with then-boyfriend musician Paul Rossi.[14][15]

In April 1995, Arquette married Nicolas Cage (with whom she would later co-star in Bringing Out the Dead in 1999). They separated after nine months, but acted as a couple in public until Cage filed for divorce in February 2000.[16] The divorce petition was withdrawn, but Arquette filed again in November 2000.[17]

Arquette and actor Thomas Jane became engaged in 2002 and have a daughter, Harlow Olivia Calliope (born February 23, 2003). Arquette and Jane subsequently married on June 25, 2006, at the Palazzo Contarini in Venice, Italy.[18] In January 2009, Arquette filed for divorce from Jane on the grounds of irreconcilable differences,[19] but the couple soon reconciled and Arquette requested to abandon the divorce petition on July 9, 2009.[20] However, on August 13, 2010, Jane's representative announced that Arquette and Jane had decided to proceed with a divorce due to “irreconcilable differences.” The divorce was finalized on July 1, 2011. The pair were granted joint custody of their child.[21]

Charity work[edit]

After the Haiti earthquake in 2010, Arquette and childhood friend Rosetta Millington-Getty formed GiveLove,[22] a non-profit organization supporting ecological sanitation and composting, community development projects and housing construction in Haiti.[23] She has also worked with Eracism Foundation, Libby Ross Foundation, The Art of Elysium, and The Heart Truth.[24] Most recently, she is doing a commercial for ABC on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals for homeless dogs and cats.[25]

In 1997, after her mother died of breast cancer, Arquette worked to raise awareness about the disease. She has run in the annual Race for the Cure, and in 1999 was the spokesperson for Lee National Denim Day, which raises millions of dollars for breast cancer research and education. In April 2010, she teamed-up with welding students of the Robert Morgan Educational Center, in Miami, Florida, to build shelters in earthquake-ravaged Haiti from 20 used shipping containers.[26]
