Acclaimed actress Frances McDormand has appeared in numerous films including Burn After Reading, Mississippi Burning, Moonrise Kingdom, and The Man Who Wasn’t There.  While her Oscar-winning performance as a tenacious Minnesota police officer in the Coen brothers’ film Fargo brought her widespread fame, her supporting roles and her uncompromising approach to acting had already earned her the respect of audiences and directors.  Throughout her career, McDormand has continued to work both on and off-Broadway, in plays like The Country Girl, Far Away, A Streetcar Named Desire, and Good People, for which she received a Tony Award. Most recently, she produced and starred in the HBO miniseries Olive Kitteridge.
