Biography

Santa Ana, California, U.S. (1980 – present)

Michelle Pfeiffer (born April 29, 1958 in Santa Ana, California, U.S.) is a celebrated american actress. She made her screen debut in 1980, but first garnered mainstream attention with her performance in Scarface (1983). She rose to prominence in the late 1980s and early 1990s with critically acclaimed performances in the films Dangerous Liaisons (1988), Married to the Mob (1988), The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989), The Russia House (1990), Frankie and Johnny (1991), Love Field (1992), Batman Returns (1992), and The Age of Innocence (1993).

She graduated from Fountain Valley High School in 1976, and spent a year at the Golden West College in order to become a court reporter. However; it was while working as a checker at “Vons”, a large Californian grocery franchise that she finally realized her true calling.

After a few minor appearances in various TV-dramas, telefilms and motion pictures (such as Floyd Mutrux’ “The Hollywood Knights”, Steven Paul’s “Falling in Love Again” and the last “Charlie Chan”-picture starring Peter Ustinov) she finally landed the role of Stephanie Zinone in the sequel to the smash-hit musical “Grease”.

While not nearly as big a success as the original, the film has recently garnered a dedicated cult following; much thanks to Pfeiffer’s memorable performance.

Only one year later she starred in Brian dePalma’s violent classic “Scarface”, as Elvira Hancock, Tony Montana’s (Al Pacino) severely neglected “trophy” of a wife.
Her career took flight from then on at an alarming pace.
