Joanna Cassidy grew up in an artistic family, and attended Haddonfield Memorial High School, where she enjoyed sports, including baseball. She matriculated to Syracuse University, where she majored in art, and met her first husband, a doctor, in 1964. The couple then moved to San Francisco. At this time, she also began fashion modelling.

Cassidy’s first movie role was in 1968’s “Bullitt”, a Steve McQueen vehicle – a small part, but a start. She and her husband divorced in 1974, but then after moving to Los Angeles, her career opportunities increased, and she also began to branch into television work alongside her cinematic roles.

In 1975, Cassidy began work on the cult classic “The Stepford Wives”, but was replaced after a fortnight’s filming by Paula Prentiss. In the same year, she was also given the role of Wonder Woman, until it was taken from her by Lynda Carter. Despite these setbacks, she continued to receive steady work; her first major part came in 1982, when she was cast in the science fiction classic “Blade Runner”, playing the part of Zhora. She would play the part again nearly 40 years later, when in 2007 she recreated the final scene of the movie for a new edition of the film. This was done at her suggestion, because in the original cut, she and her stunt double appeared noticeably different, with different hair and builds.

Another starring role also came in 1982, in “Under Fire” with Gene Hackman. In 1988, she was the female lead in “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, opposite male star, Bob Hoskins. A variety of roles followed, in sitcoms, dramas, and even horror productions. She enjoyed particular success in “Six Feet Under”, the well-received television drama, and was nominated for an Emmy. In 2000, she was a voice actress for the video game “Nox”, and she provided her voice again in 2002, for “Superman: The Animated Series”. In 2011, she played the role of Joan Hun on “Body of Proof”, though the show was cancelled by ABC after three seasons.

She is currently filming a television show, “Confess”, scheduled for a 2017 release. Her work for the better part of the past decade has been mostly confined to television, but over her career, Cassidy has been nominated for various awards, including three Emmys, and has also won a Golden Globe for her performance in the 1983 sitcom “Buffalo Bill”.

In her personal life, Cassidy has two children with Dr. Kennard C. Kobrin, her husband from 1964-74. She has not married again, and has kept her romantic life very private, though it has been reported she had an affair with “Blade Runner” director, Ridley Scott. She still enjoys artistic pursuits, particularly creating sculptures and painting. She also is involved in philanthropy, and supports animal rights charities.

Interesting Facts

#Fact
1Natchitoches, Louisiana [May 2010]
2She has a son and a daughter with her ex-husband.
3In the spring of 2007, she donned Zhora's costume once more, 25 years after the release of Blade Runner (1982), in order to recreate a climactic scene from the film for the fall 2007 Final Cut release of the film. In the original release, a stunt performer played out Zhora's death scene, with the physical differences between the performer and Cassidy very evident (including the stunt person wearing a different wig). For the final cut, Cassidy's head was digitally transposed onto footage of the stunt performer, making the death scene fit continuity. Cassidy herself suggested this be done; she is captured on video making the suggestion during filming of a retrospective interview.
4Elected to the 2007-2008 Screen Actors Guild National Board of Directors.
5Studied art for one year at Syracuse University.
6Joanna's trademark infectious, roaring cackle is her natural laugh.
7Auditioned and won the role for the TV series Wonder Woman (1975) but director Jack Arnold absolutely refused to be involved with the series unless he had Lynda Carter. Lynda had the role from that point on. Ironically, Lynda auditioned for the original TV movie version of Wonder Woman (1974) but the role went to Cathy Lee Crosby.
8Was replaced by Paula Prentiss after two weeks of filming on The Stepford Wives (1975).
9Has appeared in episodes of three different series with Robert Foxworth: Falcon Crest (1981), Six Feet Under (2001) and Star Trek: Enterprise (2001).


Quotes

#Quote
1It used to be such a stigma, making that transition to various entertainment medias. There are a couple of actresses who have cut it quite well and I consider myself one. You have to work, you have to have your craft. Every job you do, you gain more experience. You never stop learning.
