Michael Madsen. Her parents divorced when she was a small girl. After matriculating from New Trier High School in Winnetka, Illinois, she enrolled at the Ted Liss Acting Studio in Chicago, and then the Harand Camp Adult Theater Seminar in Wisconsin.
Madsen made her film debut in 1983, taking a small part as Lisa in the teen romantic comedy/drama “Class”. The following year she played a cellist Madeline Robistat in the romantic comedy film “Electric Dreams”, and was cast as Princess Irulan in the sci-fi epic – “Dune”. In 1985 she starred as Barbara Spencer in the film “Creator”.
Madsen catapulted into the national spotlight with the role of Catholic schoolgirl Lisa falling for a bad boy in the 1986 romantic drama film “Fire with Fire”. The rest of the decade saw her taking supporting roles in the films “Slam Dance”, “Long Gone”, “Hot to Trot”, and others. She also had a recurring role in the television series “Moonlighting”.

In 1992 Madsen took a starring role as Helen Lyle in the horror “Candyman”, and went on to appear in the high-profile films “Ghosts of Mississippi” and “The Rainmaker”. Aside from taking supporting roles in several features and made-for-television films during the ’90s, she had a recurring role in NBC’s television series “Frasier”.
After appearing in the television series “The Practice”, “Justice League” and “American Dreams” in the early 2000s, Madsen took a major role as a divorcée, Maya in the 2004 film “Sideways”, which brought her critical acclaim and shot her to fame. It earned her Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Best Supporting Actress, and considerably added to her net worth. After “Sideways”, Madsen went on to capture successful roles in the 2000s films “Firewall”, “A Prairie Home Companion”, “The Number 23” and “The Astronaut Farmer”. She also appeared in numerous series, such as “Smith”, “Monk”, “Scoundrels”, “The Event”, “Hell on Wheels” and “Witches of East End”; all added to her wealth.

# Quote 1 Playing "Lisa" in Fire with Fire (1986) is a perfect example of how I am, intense, impulsive, full of love and ready to risk it all if I have to. Playing her was incredibly easy, as everything was just so natural. 2 I laugh when I hear someone talking about an actress "making such good choices." Yeah, well, she was probably broke! Or she's being supported and doesn't have to worry about it. And I hope that people keep that in mind when an actor suddenly does a movie for the Sci Fi Channel that is maybe not "important." We've got to make a living. People are going to do the "pay the rent" movie once in a while. The important movies don't pay well. They're for scale, or even worse, something they invented called "independent scale," in which case it's like it's costing me money to make the movie. You're getting $500 per week, before taxes and American Express is calling. So it is our job. It's how we make our living, and you don't always have the luxury of making a movie like Sideways (2004). I even got paid well to do that! Especially for me, at the time. [interviewed by Russ Fischer, CHUD.com, February 2007] 3 When you say no a lot as an actor, you're going to go broke, and that's been the hardest thing to go through in the last 10 years. Being a single mother and having financial problems is a nightmare.
