Biography

Golden Globe®, SAG®, and Emmy® nominee Christina Ricci is one of Hollywood's most respected actors.   Recently, Ricci was seen in Showtime’s breakout hit drama series, “Yellowjackets” in the fan favorite role ‘Misty Quigley,’ the former equipment manager of the Yellowjackets soccer team who is eager to please and easy to overlook, but whose abundance of team spirit belies a hidden dark side. The series was nominated for a Critics Choice Award for “Best Drama Series” and was recently renewed for a second season.   Upcoming, Ricci will be seen in Tim Burton’s “Wednesday” which will release with Netflix later this year. “Wednesday” is a coming-of-age comedy, written by Smallville creators Al Gough and Miles Millar.   Ricci starred in the Amazon original series “Z: The Beginning of Everything,” for which she also served as a producer. In the biography series, which Ricci sourced and co-developed, she played ‘Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald,’ the brilliant, beautiful and talented Southern Belle who becomes the original flapper and icon of the wild, flamboyant Jazz Age in the 20s.   Ricci has received great acclaim in various roles including Ang Lee's ensemble film, "The Ice Storm," co-starring Kevin Kline, Sigourney Weaver, Joan Allen, and Elijah Wood. She then went on to star as Dedee Truit, in the scathing comedy "The Opposite of Sex," with a performance which won her the Best Actress Award at the Seattle Film Festival. Ricci was also nominated for a Golden Globe® Award, an American Comedy Award, and an Independent Spirit Award for Best Actress for her work in the film. Soon after, Ricci starred as ‘Layla' in Vincent Gallo's "Buffalo 66," earning a National Board of Review Best Supporting Actress Award for her combined efforts in "The Opposite of Sex," "Buffalo 66" and John Water's "Pecker."    Additional film credits include Paul Duddridge and Nigel Levy’s “Mothers and Daughters,” Sony Pictures Animation’s “The Smurfs 2,” Sarah Spillane's “Around the Block,” Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod's “Bel Ami,” Larry and Andy Wachowski's "Speed Racer;" Mark Palansky's "Penelope;" Craig Brewer's "Black Snake Moan," a critically acclaimed performance in Patty Jenkins' "Monster," opposite Academy Award® winner Charlize Theron; Wes Craven's "Cursed," Woody Allen's romantic comedy "Anything Else," Sally Potter's "The Man Who Cried" and a memorable cameo in Terry Gilliam's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." Additionally, Ricci starred opposite Johnny Depp in Tim Burton's "Sleepy Hollow," for which she won the Blockbuster Entertainment Award.    The actress's performance at age seven in a school Christmas play caught the attention of a local theatre critic, who suggested to her parents that she consider an acting career. She made her professional acting debut one year later in "Mermaids" in the pivotal role of Cher's youngest daughter and Winona Ryder's sister. As a child actor, Ricci won over audiences and critics alike with her winning portrayal of the strangely adorable Wednesday Addams' in "The Addams Family" and the sequel "Addams Family Values." She went on to star in the surprise hit of the summer 1995 season "Casper." For that, Ricci received the NATO Show East Star of the Year Award and the Star of Tomorrow Award from the Motion Picture Booker's Club for her strong performances and the $100 million-plus box office successes of "Addams Family" and "Casper."    On television, Ricci starred as the title character in the television series, “The Lizzie Borden Chronicles,” for which she earned her a 2016 SAG Award® nomination. The series is a fictionalized account Lizzie Borden and the 1892 murders of her father and stepmother and is a continuation of the story begun in the 2014 film “Lizzie Borden Took an Ax”, in which Ricci also starred.
