Guinevere Turner

Guinevere Turner started her film career in 1992 as writer, producer and star of GO FISH, which was executive produced by Christine Vachon and Tom Kalin and premiered in dramatic competition at the 1994 Sundance Film Festival. Turner's next project was a role in the controversial independent THE WATERMELON WOMAN, which Alec Baldwin defended in his much-publicized fight to protect funding for the NEA.

Turner has appeared in films as diverse as Kevin Smith's CHASING AMY and DOGMA, as well as in LATIN BOYS GO TO HELL and KISS ME, GUIDO. In 1996, she portrayed an American dominatrix in PREACHING TO THE PERVERTED with BAFTA-winning director Stuart Urban. More recently, her credits include Scott King's TREASURE ISLAND --which was honored for distinctive creative vision at 1999Õs Sundance -- and director Steve Adelson's first feature, DANTE'S VIEW.

As a writer, Turner recently collaborated with Mary Harron on a script about pin-up legend Betty Page, to be directed by Harron, produced by Christine Vachon and starring Turner. She is also working on the adaptation of Jerzy Kosinski's novel Pinball, to be directed by Gary Fleder.
