BIOGRAPHY

Blonde former model turned self-proclaimed character actress in films and TV of the late 1980s and 90s. Lynch made her acting debut as the titular character in the straight-to-video sci-fi quickie, "Osa" (1985) while pregnant with her daughter, Shane. She turned up again in 1988 in a bit part in "Bright Lights, Big City" and a larger role as the nymphomaniac wife of Bryan Brown in the Tom Cruise vehicle, "Cocktail". She received more attention playing opposite Patrick Swayze in the action flick, "Road House" (1989).

Lynch attracted serious critical attention with a moving, resolutely unglamorous performance as the junkie wife of Matt Dillon in Gus Van Sant's moody, picaresque "Drugstore Cowboy" (1989). She subsequently appeared as the love-struck attorney of Mickey Rourke in Michael Cimino's remake, "Desperate Hours" (1990) and John Hughes' family comedy, "Curley Sue" (1991). Lynch was better served by the unconventional romantic comedy, "Three of Hearts" (1993). Co-scripted by her husband, Mitch Glazer, and co-starring Sherilyn Fenn and William Baldwin, the film depicted a triangle involving two female lovers and a male escort. Lynch also appeared in a 1993 French co-production, "For Better and For Worse/R.S.V.P.", a whimsical comedy featuring the Pope deciding to attend the wedding of a troubled couple so as to brighten his own public image.
