Patricia Arquette

Biography

Arquette was born in Chicago, Illinois. Her father was actor Lewis Arquette, and her grandfather was comedian Cliff Arquette, best remembered for his "Charley Weaver" character, a fixture on the original Hollywood Squares. Arquette's mother, Mardi Olivia Nowak, was Jewish, the daughter of a Holocaust refugee from Poland. Arquette's father was a convert to Islam and a descendant of explorer Meriwether Lewis. Her siblings are actors Rosanna, Richmond, David Arquette, and Alexis. Arquette is also the sister-in-law of Courteney Cox, who is married to her brother David. At the age of eighteen she got her start in show business in 1986's Pretty Smart. A year later, she gained attention for her starring role in A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, playing Kristen Parker. In 1993 she starred in Tony Scott's ultra-violent True Romance, which put Arquette on the map, so to speak. Soon after, her career took off, and she has since appeared in such critically acclaimed movies as Beyond Rangoon, Ethan Frome, Lost Highway, Stigmata, Bringing Out The Dead, Human Nature, Disney's Holes, and Flirting with Disaster. In January, 2005 she began starring in her first television series, NBC's Medium. Now in its 3rd season, the success of Medium has made Arquette a household name. She won a CableACE Award in 1991 for her portrayal of a deaf epileptic in Wildflower. She won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in 2005 for her role as the psychic Allison DuBois on NBC's Medium. She was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and SAG award in 2006 for her role on Medium. Nominated for a Golden Globe Award in 2007 for her role on Medium. From Wikipedia
