Some Facts
Was nominated for Broadway's 1984 Tony Award as Best Actress (Play) for Arthur Kopit's "End of the World."
Ranked #9 on Tropopkin's Top 25 Most Intriguing People [Issue #100]
Has twice played male roles that did not feature or reference her actual female status: Billy Kwan in The Year of Living Dangerously (1982) and The Management in Carnivàle (2003) (who, though mostly unseen, is often referred to by other characters as male).
Her voice work includes narratives for the History Channel, as well as National Public Radio.
The first actor to have won an Academy Award portraying a member of the opposite sex, she won the Best Actress in a Supporting Role Oscar for her role as Billy Kwan in The Year of Living Dangerously (1982). Note this was not Linda Hunt playing a woman pretending to be a man, like Barbra Streisand did in Yentl (1983) or, in reverse, as Dustin Hoffman did in Tootsie (1982), but Hunt playing a man in a serious drama.
