Louise was born into a family with deaf parents, but she along with her siblings did not have any hearing loss problems. She was taught by an aunt to speak, and her aunt also introduced her to acting. She attended the University of North Carolina, and after graduating went to Los Angeles where she worked as a secretary, and took acting lessons by night.

In 1958, she started appearing in various television series ,such as “Lawman” and “Maverick”. The following year, she appeared in the original “Untouchables” TV series, as a guest in one episode. She also made a guest appearance in “Perry Mason”, and in 1960 was cast in the western television series “Tate” as Roberta McConnell. After just doing a single major film in the 1960s, she returned to film in 1974 with “Thieves Like Us”, directed by Robert Altman. This started to increase her net worth and opened more opportunities for her. She was cast in “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest” as Nurse Ratched, and the film gained her recognition internationally, winning her an Academy Award for Best Actress, plus a BAFTA and Golden Globe Award.

She then had mixed success; she had several critically and financially successful films while there were also other projects which were failures. Some of her more popular roles during this time included “Exorcist II: The Heretic”, “The Lady in Red”, “Firestarter” and “Invaders from Mars”. Other films she had from the 1980s to the 1990s included “Two Moon Junction”, “Blue Steel”, and “Cruel Intentions” in which she played Sebastian’s Aunt. In 2005, she appeared in the film “Aurora Borealis” alongside Joshua Jackson.

Over the course of her career, she has also appeared in a lot of television movies, including “The Karen Carpenter Story”, and “Nightmare on the 13th Floor”. She had a recurring role in “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” as the Bajoran, Kai Winn Adami. She also had Emmy Award nominations for her performances in “Picket Fences” and “Joan of Arcadia”. In 2009, she was cast in the NBC series “Heroes”, while one of her latest projects on television is “Shameless”.

For her personal life, it is known that Louise married producer Jerry Bick in 1960 and their marriage lasted until 1977. They had two sons, and Fletcher took a break from acting to raise her sons. She has apparently remained single since then.

3Gave birth to her 2nd child at age 28, a son Andrew Wilson Bick in December 1962. Child's father is her [now ex] husband, Jerry Bick.
4Was the 77th actress to receive an Academy Award; she won the Best Actress Oscar for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) at The 48th Annual Academy Awards (1976) on March 29, 1976.
5The mother of two sons with Jerry Bick, John Dashiell Bick and Andrew Wilson Bick, for whom she took an 11-year hiatus from acting to raise.
6She was in several scenes that were later deleted from Sergio Leone's Once Upon a Time in America (1984).
7One of the other Best Actress nominees in 1976 was Ann-Margret, who was nominated for her role Tommy (1975). Coincidentally, both films featured Jack Nicholson.
8Her Oscar-winning role as Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) was ranked #5 in the American Film Institute's Villains list in their 100 years of The Greatest Screen Heroes and Villains.
9Was cited for reckless driving in 2000 when she slammed into a police officer near her Virginia home.
10Her role in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) had been turned down by Anne Bancroft, Ellen Burstyn, Colleen Dewhurst and Jane Fonda. Bancroft and Dewhurst turned down the role because they found it anti-feminist and downright misogynistic.
11After her divorce from producer Jerry Bick in the late 1970s she caused a stir when she, then in her 40s, began dating 21-year-old Morgan Mason, the son of actor James Mason.
12Was a leading choice to play the mother in Terms of Endearment (1983).
13Lily Tomlin's role in Robert Altman's Nashville (1975) was originally written for, and in part by, Fletcher, whose then-husband had been Altman's producer. When the two men had a falling-out, Altman chose to cast Tomlin instead.
14Learned sign language at a very young age, as both of her parents were deaf. When Fletcher neared the end of her (spoken) Best Actress Oscar acceptance speech for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975), she finished with a unique (unspoken) touch in American Sign Language: "For my mother and my father, I want to say thank you for teaching me to have a dream. You are seeing my dream come true. Thank you." (29 March 1976).


Quotes

1[2012, on why she can no longer bear to watch One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975)] I find it too painful. It comes with age. I can't watch movies that are inhumane. I was really shocked in those scenes where I was actually so cruel.
2She and my uncle were very sociable and would have a lot of people over at night to play cards or whatever. The high spot of those evenings was when we kids got dressed up to do a skit or something to amuse the guests. I loved it.
3If I fell down and hurt myself, I never cried. There was no one to hear me.
4From the time I was very young, maybe five or six, I thought a lot about being an actress. I didn't tell my friends about my ambitions, though, especially when I got older, because I thought they would not receive them well. I never talked about what I wanted to do.
5I really would rather have gone to New York, since all my training had been in theater, but I didn't have the guts to go there alone. I knew only one person in New York, and that was a man. What I needed was a woman. That's the way Southern girls thought.
6Life had stopped for her a long time ago. She was so out of touch with her feelings that she had no joy in her life and no concept of the fact that she could be wrong. She delivered her care of her insane patients in a killing manner, but she was convinced she was right.
7Live television drama was like live theater, because you moved without thinking about the camera. It followed you around. In film you have to be more aware of what the camera is doing.
8That's the main reason I gave up my career after John was born and I was pregnant with Andrew. I could not handle going away day after day. The thought of going away before they got up and coming back after they were in bed was intolerable.
9The Communist Party was my Nurse Ratched! [Milos Forman, in Milos Forman: Co te nezabije... (2009)].
10[In sign language to her deaf parents, upon winning the Oscar for Best Actress] I want to thank you for teaching me to have a dream. You are seeing my dream come true.
11Milos Forman doesn't want to discuss anything with his actors.
