BIOGRAPHY

The daughter of two acting legends, Amanda Plummer carved out her own impressive stage and screen legacy. Creating the Broadway role of the innocent, ethereal young nun who claimed to have become pregnant by God, the actress won a Tony for Agnes of God and played many other stage roles to great acclaim. Onscreen, Plummer earned excellent reviews for small, offbeat roles including a mutilated victim in "The World According to Garp" (1982), a shy accountant in "The Fisher King" (1991) and the developmentally disabled girlfriend of mentally challenged Benny (Larry Drake) on "L.A. Law" (NBC, 1986-1994). Best remembered as the ferocious robber "Honey Bunny" who held up a diner with "Pumpkin" (Tim Roth) in "Pulp Fiction" (1994), the killer in Mike Myers's campy "So I Married an Axe Murderer" (1993), and a knife-happy small-town woman in Stephen King's "Needful Things" (1993), the multiple Emmy-winning Plummer was often cast as frighteningly intense, unhinged or desperate characters. One of the all-time best character actresses of the modern era, Amanda Plummer was noteworthy for her complete lack of onscreen vanity and fearless dedication to her craft.
