I like Mare Winningham.
I remember her mostly from movies in the 80s. She was in St. Elmo's Fireand was kind of labeled one of the Brat Pack. Although she never really seemed to attractthe type of news that other member like Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Andrew McCarthy, Judd Nelson or Emelio Estevez would attract.
Since that movie I've noticed her in a number of features and television movies/series and she's always terrific. She gets a great deal of work and that has resulted in at least 11 acting award nominations including an Oscar nomination for 1996s Georgia. She is currently co starring in the HBO Mini Series Mildred Pierce starring Kate Winslet.
While she has never gained the kind of fame that her past co stars may have, maybe that's not such a bad thing considering that fame.
Regardless, she's a terrific actress, but she also had a talent I knew nothing about. She can sing. And when I say she can sing, what I really mean to say is SHE CAN SING!
While I enjoy seeing her in front of the camera, I think she has a whole career in music should she want it. I mean...listen to that voice!
