Meg Ryan saw her film career go full circle when she signed to star in THE WOMEN. She had made her onscreen feature debut in 1981's RICH AND FAMOUS, playing the daughter of Candice Bergen…who plays her mother ‘Catherine Frazier' in THE WOMEN.
During a celebrated career that includes three Golden Globe nominations (for the hit comedies YOU'VE GOT MAIL, SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE and WHEN HARRY MET SALLY), the versatile leading lady has excelled in genres ranging from drama (WHEN A MAN LOVES A WOMAN, COURAGE UNDER FIRE) to science fiction and fantasy (INNERSPACE, CITY OF ANGELS) to action adventure (PROOF OF LIFE, THE PRESIDIO) to docudrama (playing Pamela Courson, Jim Morrison's partner, in Oliver Stone's THE DOORS).
Born in Fairfield, Connecticut, she attended New York University before finding immediate success in daytime television dramas such as "As the World Turns" after making her 1981 film debut in RICH AND FAMOUS. Roles in such films as TOP GUN, ARMED AND DANGEROUS and D.O.A. led to her breakthrough performance opposite Billy Crystal in director Rob Reiner's blockbuster comedy WHEN HARRY MET SALLY in 1989.
Always in demand, she starred in such films as RESTORATION, JOE VERSUS THE VOLCANO, PRELUDE TO A KISS, I.Q., FRENCH KISS (which she also produced), ADDICTED TO LOVE, PROMISED LAND, HURLYBURLY, HANGING UP, IN THE CUT, AGAINST THE ROPES, MY MOM'S NEW BOYFRIEND and IN THE LAND OF WOMEN.
Meg will next be seen in THE DEAL opposite Bill Macy, and SERIOUS MOONLIGHT, the Adrienne Shelly - scripted comedy with Timothy Hutton, Justin Long and Kristen Bell.
