Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

While Anne Archer earned an Academy Award nomination for her supporting performance in the popular 1987 thriller "Fatal Attraction," it was the actress' television career that provided the most long-term visibility. She earned her reputation as a loyal wife in big budget movies "Patriot Games" (1992) and "Clear and Present Danger" (1994) opposite Harrison Ford, and on the small screen she starred in countless movies-of-the-week as women coping with the aftermath of divorce, death, remarriage and infidelity. Archer also starred in a number of family-related television series, playing high-powered executive matriarchs on the glamorous dramas "Falcon Crest" (CBS, 1981-1990), and "Privileged" (The CW, 2008-09), proving her versatility as both a vulnerable every-woman and a saucy force to be reckoned with.
