Felicity Huffman was born on December 9, 1962 and is an alumna of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London. She is one of the many classically trained stage performers who have found a home on television. Huffman made her first feature length film debut in 1988 in Things Change and continued her acting career in the world of TV movies, minus a few exceptions including Hackers, The Spanish Prisoner, and Magnolia. Making the move to the small screen, Huffman was bumped up to star on the sitcom Sports Night playing the role of Dana Whitaker. The show ran from 1998 to 2000 on ABC before making the move to Comedy Central in syndication. After Sports Night was cancelled in 2000, Felicity earned both Golden Globe and SAG nominations for her work on the show. In 2000, Huffman had her first child and was able to be seen in a large string of television movies such as Path to War. She also lent her voice to Disney Channel's animated series Kim Possible and made appearances on shows including Fraiser, The West Wing, and Girls Club. In 2004, Huffman starred in ABC's newest series Desperate Housewives. The show was an instant success, unlike any other role she had played throughout her entire career. She earned an Emmy, a SAG award, multiple Golden Globe nominations, and she finally became a household name. In 2006, she won a Golden Globe for best performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture-Drama for her role in Transamerica.
