Anne Heche has become one of Hollywood's most sought-after and versatile actresses. She has garnered critical praise and been nominated for both Tony and Emmy awards.
Heche currently stars in NBC's new comedy series "Save Me" as Beth Harper, a woman whose near-death experience now allows her to speak with God - much to the bewilderment of her family and friends.
Heche was most recently seen in the dark comedy "Arthur Newman," opposite Colin Firth and Emily Blunt. The film tells the story of a man who fakes his own death in an attempt to reinvent himself. Heche plays Mina, the girlfriend of Firth's character, Arthur. Directed by Dante Ariola, the film premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival and was released in April 2013.
Among other current projects, Heche serves as a producer on "Bad Judge" along with Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Jill Messick. The single-camera half-hour comedy is in development with Universal Television.
Last year Heche starred in the independent feature film "That's What She Said." The film was released on video-on-demand.
Heche previously starred in the HBO comedy series "Hung," opposite Thomas Jane and Jane Adams. The series premiered in 2009 and had a three-season run.
Last year, Heche was seen in TNT's "Silent Witness," opposite Dermot Mulroney. Prior to that, Heche appeared in the Lifetime original movie "Girl Fight," opposite James Tupper and Jodelle Ferland. In 2005, Heche appeared in the Lifetime movie "Fatal Desire" and the Hallmark Channel's holiday movie "Silver Bells" on CBS.
In 2004 Heche starred in the ABC series "Men in Trees" as a female relationship guru who moves to Alaska. Also in 2004, Heche earned her first primetime Emmy Award nomination for her portrayal of a drug-addicted mother in the Lifetime original movie "Gracie's Choice," alongside Diane Ladd.
She has created memorable characters in several guest-starring performances on hit shows, including "Nip/Tuck," "Everwood," "Ally McBeal" and HBO's telefilm "If These Walls Could Talk," which was directed by Cher.
On the big screen, Heche won the National Board of Review Award for Best Supporting Actress in Barry Levinson's "Wag the Dog," which co-starred Robert De Niro and Dustin Hoffman. Other films roles over a lengthy career include "Donnie Brasco," "Cedar Rapids," "Birth," "Walking and Talking" and "Six Days Seven Nights."
Heche was also seen in Millennium Pictures' "Rampart," alongside Woody Harrelson, Steve Buscemi, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Foster. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2011 and was released in November in New York and Los Angeles.
Heche made her Broadway debut in 2002 in the critically acclaimed production of the Tony Award-winning play "Proof." She garnered rave reviews from critics, which led to an extension of the show's run. She triumphantly returned to Broadway in the Roundabout Theater stage production of "Twentieth Century" in 2004. Her critically acclaimed performance opposite Alec Baldwin earned her a Tony Award nomination for Best Lead Actress in a Play.
Heche also wrote and directed a short feature entitled "Reaching Normal" for Showtime's "First Director Series," as well as the second installment of "If These Walls Could Talk."
Heche resides in Los Angeles with her family.
