Heather Donahue was raised in her hometown by her father, James Donahue, who worked as a printer, and her mother, Joan Donahue, who was an office manager. She attended Upper Darby High School, and upon matriculation in 1991, she moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where she graduated from The University of the Arts in 1995.

Heather’s professional acting career began in 1997, when she made her debut appearance as Sadey in only one shot of not so popular film entitled “Raw: Stripped To The Bone”. In the same year, she went to an audition for a horror film, and one of the requirements was the presence of improvisational skills, which she thought she had. Thanks to her talents, she was selected to appear in one of the lead roles in “The Blair Witch Project”, which later became a classic in that genre, and one of the most successful independent films of all time, which added a considerable amount to her net worth.

Even though the film was surprisingly well received both by the audience and the critics, Heather got mixed reviews, so in the next couple of years, it was hard for her to get a new job. However, in 2000, she appeared in the role of Megan in the romantic comedy “Boys And Girls”, starring alongside Jason Biggs and Freddie Prinze, Jr., as well as in the film “Home Field Advantage”, playing Wendy Waitress, which added to her net worth.

Her first role in the new millennium was in the film “Seven And A Match” (2001), and in the same year she guest-starred in the TV series “The Outer Limits”. In the following year, she starred in the role of Mandy in “New Suit”, landed a role in the TV film “The Big Time”, and was selected to play Mary Crawford in the TV mini-series “Taken”, all of which increased her net worth by a large margin.

To speak further about her acting career, Heather also guest-starred in the TV series “Without A Trace” in 2003, and in another one entitled “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” (2005). Most recently, she appeared in the role of Cpl. Keats in the 2005 film “Manticore”, and as Nan in the film “The Morgue” in 2008. Her net worth was certainly rising. Currently, she is not active in the film industry.

Thanks to her skills, she was nominated for the Blockbuster Entertainment Award for Favorite Actress – Newcomer, and for an Online Film Critics Society Award for Best Actress for her work on “The Blair Witch Project”; however, in contradiction, for the same project she won a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress.

Regarding Heather Donahue’s personal life, there is no information about it in the media, except that she started growing medical marijuana after the end of her acting career, after which she became known for publishing the memoir “Growgirl” about that experience in 2012. Her current residence is in Nevada City, California.

Quotes

#Quote
1[talking about the advices she received from the producers of The Blair Witch Project (1999): "They said, "Your safety is our issue. Your comfort is not." Those were the words of producer Gregg Hale!"
2[talking about her character in The Blair Witch Project (1999)]: "It's so funny because I've heard people say it's a feminist movie because there's a woman in charge and I've heard it called a completely anti-feminist movie because this woman screws everything up. It's just who cares really? It's just a movie. But I think you can look at it as a feminist film. I mean, well, hell, if the Blair Witch is a woman, she's really ultimately control of everyone in the film."
