Biography

Glenn Close (born March 19, 1947) is an American film and stage actress and singer, best recalled for her role as a deranged stalker in Fatal Attraction (1987). Close has won an Emmy Award, three Tony Awards, and two Golden Globes; she has further been nominated for five Academy Awards, eight Emmys, and nine Golden Globes.

Close was born in Greenwich, Connecticut, to Bettine (née Moore) and William Taliaferro Close,[1] a doctor who operated a clinic in the Belgian Congo and served as a personal physician to President Mobutu Sese Seko. [2] Her parents came from prominent families; her paternal grandfather, Edward Bennett Close, a stockbroker and director of the American Hospital Association,[3] was first married to Post Cereals’ heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post, making Glenn Close a relative of screenwriter/director Preston Sturges and actress Dina Merrill. Close is also a second cousin once removed of Brooke Shields. Shields’s great-grandmother Mary Elsie Moore (wife of Don Marino Torlonia, 4th Prince di Civitella-Cesi) was Close’s great-aunt, a sister of Close’s maternal grandfather, Charles Arthur Moore.

Close attended Choate Rosemary Hall, a private boarding school in Connecticut, and later the College of William and Mary; there she was elected to membership in the honor society of Phi Beta Kappa.

Close has had a lengthy career as a versatile actress and performer.
